Today’s edition kicks off the with some love from our friends from Naughty Dog. Their Artist Spotlight hit PSN a bit ago, but we wanted to feature it on the PlayStation.Blog to commemorate the release of the official Nathan Drake Mod and Kart AND the release of the Artist Spotlight content you saw in previous videos. Be sure to tune into ModNation Monday next week as a “very special” guest gets The Spotlight!
‘Till then, read on and keep on racing!
Artist Spotlight: Naughty Dog
The team at Naughty Dog are no strangers to blockbuster franchises. They’ve been responsible for some of the biggest titles on every PlayStation console including the Crash Bandicoot series, Jak and Daxter, and most recently Uncharted. They are no strangers to racing either, Crash Team Racing defined Kart racing on the PlayStation and Jak X Combat Racing (PS2) was an adrenaline ride for all Jak fans. We were excited to see what Naughty Dog’s top designers thought once they got their hands on ModNation Races and see them work their magic and get “Un-Karted”.

Track Name: Burning Track
Created by: Stitchless
Stitchless says “These farms used to be lush and productive, but now thanks to the infamous Crop Demon, they are dangerously close to being caught a blaze. Be careful as you race around this track…”
Track Name: Alien All Star (v2)
Created by: daaa57150
daaa57150 says “In an alternate future, humans started colonizing other planets and built a space base. Hearing about this, the ModNation officials decided to organize a championship. The track is relatively easy to comprehend, being of medium-long size. It took me 52s for a lap in a time trial race.”
Track Name: University Challenge
Created by: atheistsw
atheistsw says “The ModNation comes to the picturesque European town of Zetterberg, home of one of the region’s leading universities. The university, to celebrate its 250th anniversary, graciously allowed a race through the grounds of the historic site. The race organizers extended the route along the lakeside and through the neighboring village. Just for kicks, they opted to race along the old rooftops as well!”
