Posted on April 19, 2012, Phil Hornshaw Pre-Order LittleBigPlanet Karting, Get Kevin Butler
The next entry in the LittleBigPlanet series is a kart racer, and if you’re excited enough to lay down a pre-order for the game, your reward is Sony’s own Kevin Butler — in Sackboy form.
You ought to remember Sony mascot Kevin Butler, vice president of such departments as Apologetic Apologies, Soiling Oneself In Excitement and Add More Awesome. He appeared in a bunch of adds in the last few years for the Playstation 3 and even made an appearance at an E3 keynote in 2010, which, realistically, is pretty cool for a TV spokesman. And now you, too, can play as Butler.
Pre-ordering LittleBigPlanet Karting nets you the Butler Sackboy skin and a special golf cart to go with it. You can definitely take advantage of the promotion at Amazon and GameStop; it’s less clear if you’ll get the pre-order bonus at other retailers, so you might want to check.
