Mario Kart Live Home Circuit

Nintendo’s Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, a mixed reality title that allows for turning one’s living room into a racing circuit, has received a big new update. It adds several new features like split-screen multiplayer and the new Relay Race mode. Check out the trailer below to see it in action.

As the name implies, split-screen allows for two karts to be connected to a single Switch with two feeds displayed on the screen at once. Relay Race is a new co-op mode where players take turns driving and must compete against Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings. Other new content includes the Luigi Cup for Grand Prix, which unlocks two new Environments and three new Gate Types in Course Creation.

Also, if the player fulfills certain conditions in the new Cup, they can unlock the Poltergust G-00 and Spooky Horn for their kart. Check out the full patch notes below for more details.

Ver. 2.0.0

Additional Features

  • Luigi Cup was added to Grand Prix. Fulfill certain conditions in Luigi Cup to acquire two new Environments and three new Gate Types to use in Course Creation.
  • The POLTERGUST G-00 and SPOOKY HORN have been added to Kart Customization in game. Acquire them by fulfilling certain conditions in Luigi Cup.
  • Relay Race was added to Multiplayer. This is a cooperative mode where up to four players take turns driving one kart, playing as Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, and Mario / Luigi (depending on the kart used) against Bowser Jr., and the Koopalings. Enough controllers to match the number of players is required to play Relay Race.
  • Split Screen was added to Multiplayer. Connect two karts to one Nintendo Switch console, to play together at the same time. The video feed from the karts will be divided onto the screen, allowing two feeds to be displayed at once.
  • Playing Split Screen requires two karts, and two Joy-Con, or Pro controllers.
