Gran Turismo 5 Gets Course Creation and Kart Racing

Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi isn't ever going to be satisfied with the amount of content in Gran Turismo 5. The latest example of his insatiable desire to add more to the game comes with word that Gran Turismo 5 will be getting a course creation mode and kart racing.


According to Kotaku, the course creator "lets you build a custom racetrack based on a set of parameters. Players can select a theme, choose the number of sections and course type (one way or loop), weather, time of day and length."

Kart racing is exactly that: go-kart racing. Some video from the Gamescom 2010 show floor has emerged, showing off the new mode in Gran Turismo 5. Thankfully, there don't appear to be any power-ups.

Luckily, Sony has actually convinced him to stop adding things and actually release the game in November. We think.
