Sackboy joins ModNation Racers cast

Plus: more US pre-order bonuses.

Sony has announced LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy will be joining the cast of drivers in the upcoming ModNation Racers.

The presence of Media Molecule's familiar hero - who comes with his own ramshackle cardboard kart - was hinted at yesterday and officially confirmed today via a post on the US PlayStation blog.

Sackboy will be available to US purchasers who pre-order the game from Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop or Game Crazy, as well as day-one purchasers who buy specially marked copies on 25th May.

No word yet on how European racers can get their steering wheel hands on Sackboy, but a Sony representative told Eurogamer, "We'll be announcing how you get Sackboy in Europe soon."

The blog also revealed that US pre-orderers at the four retailers listed above will get one of four additional sets of kart and racer accessories on top of any retailer-exclusive packs announced last month. Which specific mod pack players receive is dependent on the "luck of the draw", according to the post.
