Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is a Switch racer that uses RC cars


During today's sudden announcement, Nintendo revealed the latest Mario Kart — and it wasn't unexpected. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is a racing game, but players use the Switch to drive a car that is controlled remotely. These cars, along with a virtual racetrack, then appear on the Switch screen. It's a kind of augmented reality taking over the iconic racers, and being developed in partnership with a New York-based studio called Velan Studios.

Here’s how Nintendo describes it:

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.

Home Circuit is expected to launch on October 16th, and it will come in two varieties — Mario and Luigi — for $99.99 each. You can buy Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit (Switch) here.
