General Information

Available on:Nintendo SwitchOct 16, 2020

Developer: Nintendo

Publisher: Nintendo

Genres: Racing, Arcade

YOUR HOME IS THE CIRCUIT! Assemble the gates and place on them on the floor around your room. Drive your kart through the four gates to make a course in any shape you please. See your home from a new perspective as a Mario Kart race comes to life on your screen. As you race around the course you made, you’ll see other racers trying to beat you to the finish line as well as items that you can collect to even the odds. Things that happen in-game will even affect how your kart moves in real life. If you use a Mushroom, your kart will get a small burst of speed, but you’ll come to a stop if you’re hit by another racer’s Red Shell. Friends and family can also get together and enjoy multiplayer races for up to four players, so long as each player has their own Kart, Nintendo Switch console and a copy of the software.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit's course creation and in-game tracks are a blast held back by some key limitations.

There's real magic at the heart of this brilliantly faithful AR take on Mario Kart, but a fair few caveats abound.

A wonderfully inventive attempt to bring Mario Kart into the real world, whose mere premise is enough to amuse and delight, despite some unavoidable practical limitations.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit brings back that sense of wonder we all felt when we cracked open our first video game and realised there was another world behind the screen. Only now that other world is in our living rooms.
