Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is set to launch in just a few weeks, and Nintendo has finally lifted the lid off the game, revealing a bunch of information.
We know that depending on which kit you get, you’ll be playing as either Mario or Luigi, but it’s actually insane to see how much the game actually effects your kart in real life. For instance, if you pickup a mushroom in-game, your physical kart will get a speed boost.
In terms of the courses, there’s four gates that you can set up in any order (with a space of 10 x 12 feet), but the effects that you get on screen will still represent courses from classic Mario Kart games. The main mode is Grand Prix which features eight different cups and 24 courses including: This includes Cheep Cheep Reef, Ember Island, Boo Fortress, Chain Chomp Gate, Magikoopa Mirage, World 1-1, Rainbow Road and others.
In terms of items, there’s items such as the red shell, banana, lightning, Blooper, spiny shell and Bullet bull. Classes are in and there’s 50cc, 100cc, 150cc and 200cc. You’ll also collect coins in races in order to unlock outfits and carts.
Outside of Grand Prix, there’s the below modes:
Custom Race: This mode gives players even more room for creativity, designing not just the physical layout of the course, but also the ability to add hazards, items and more to bring truly unique creations to life.
Time Attack: Players create a course and then race to set the fastest time possible – competing either against their own personal best, or handing the controller to another player for an exciting Time Attack head-to-head that requires only one Nintendo Switch system and one Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit game.
Mirror Mode: For those who fancy an extra challenge, this mode allows all of the Grand Prix cups to be played in mirror image, with right turns becoming left and the familiar becoming unfamiliar.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is out on October 16th for Nintendo Switch.
