Revealed during the 35th anniversary Direct for Mario, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is coming to Nintendo Switch later this month. It’s not your typical Mario Kart game though, relaying on AR tech and other resources to effectively play. Check out the overview trailer for more details.
Essentially, the game is about setting down tracks in one’s home and then racing with Mario Kart-styled RC cars. These come to life on the Switch’s screen along with various obstacles, items and much more. A 12′ x 10′ space is recommended and four gates must be placed and driven through before you can begin though.
For an AR game, there is a decent amount of options. Along with Grand Prix (consisting of eight cups across 24 races), there’s Custom Races, Time Trials and even mirrored tracks. You can also choose race from 50cc all the way up to 200cc. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is out on October 16th for Nintendo Switch and retails at $99.99 – stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
