Nintendo has announced a “new” Mario Kart game coming to Nintendo Switch, 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 Nintendo Switch 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 October 16th at a suggested retail price of $99.99.
