Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is a spin-off of the Mario Kart series for the Nintendo Switch announced as part of the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. The game makes use of physical kart products of Mario and Luigi with a camera attached to the back of the kart, which live streams the surrounding area to the player's Nintendo Switch. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit releases on October 16, 2020.


The game screen

To set up a track, the player has to place up to four gates around the room. Lakitu will come down and paint the kart, and the player has to then drive through the gates, marking how they want the track to appear on screen. The appearance can be from a simple loop to a curvy track through their furniture. The controller connects to the kart product and controls it, similar to an RC Car. Items effect the kart product when used, such as Mushrooms making the toy move faster or a Koopa Shell making the toy stop momentarily. Using augmented reality, items and the Koopalings appear in the player's screen, as well as the second player's kart. Five laps can be raced.[3]
