Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit: Created in partnership by Nintendo and Velan Studios, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit brings the fun of the Mario Kart series into the real world by using a Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite to race against opponents using a physical kart come to life. The physical kart responds to boosts in-game and in the real world, stops when hitting with an item, and can be affected in different ways depending on the race. Players place gates to create a custom course layout in their home, where the only limit is their imagination. Race against Koopalings in Grand Prix unlock skins to customize courses and costumes for Mario and play with up to four players in local multiplayer mode.
Mario Kart Live sounds like a great way for kids (and “Adult kids”) to race around whatever room you have available to set things up in, which is the bigger problem with this idea. From the looks of things, you will require a large room to set up the four banners required to make a race track. For people in apartments or smaller houses, this will mean that things will be getting in the way since the units for the karts are quite large too. Either way, it does look like fun to play.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which is available in Mario or Luigi models, launches on 16th October.
