During the 35th Anniversary Mario direct, Nintendo announced Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit for the Nintendo Switch.
The game is your typical Mario Kart game with an interesting twist: players race using a physical kart controlled by the Switch, using their own home as the course.
The kart responds to boosts and items obtained in game, while the course is created in real life using a series of toy gates. It will release on October 16th in a “Mario Set” with a Mario kart, and a “Luigi Set” with a Luigi kart.
About Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit:
Created in partnership with 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 system to race against opponents using a physical Kart.
The physical Kart responds to boosts in-game and in the real world, stops when hit 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 a variety of course customizations and costumes for Mario or Luigi, and play with up to four players in local multiplayer mode.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which is available in a Mario Set or Luigi Set, launches on Oct. 16 at a suggested retail price of $99.99.
