As part of  Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Direct, Nintendo announced Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, a new Nintendo Switch title made in partnership with Velan Studios that sees players race actual, physical Karts around a track of their own creation.


This is an augmented reality game that allows players to drive a remote control Mario kart in their homes via the Nintendo Switch.  Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is set to launch on October 16th, is playable with up to four players in local multiplayer, and you can purchase either a Mario Set or a Luigi Set.

There’s a little camera on it that shows what the Kart sees, and players create courses by lining up various markers which then creates a digital overlay to race on.  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 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 own home using only their imagination.

You can 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 is set to launch for the Nintendo Switch on October 16th with both a Mario and Luigi Set. Either set is $99.99.
