First we got news that Game & Watch is coming back and now Nintendo is bringing back the days of RC car racing. Based on the trailer and info received Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit blends real remote control Mario Kart racing with Nintendo Switch hardware on courses you can create at home. A mix of augmented reality, a dream come true, and something we didn’t even know we wanted to play with.
Check it out.
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 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 skins to customise courses and costumes for Mario and play with up to four players in local multiplayer mode.
Perhaps the coolest (and cutest) little detail is the battery of the Mario or Luigi RC car displayed as a fuel icon.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit will release in both Mario or Luigi models and is set to hit stores October 16 for $149.95 AUD. Those looking to play this in multiplayer, or start up a classic father and son RC battle -- you’ll need two copies and two Nintendo Switches.
