Starting today, players of the Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit game for the Nintendo Switchfamily of systems have even more ways to enjoy the thrill of Mario Kart racing in their own home with friends and family! Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit lets players control a real-life Mario Kart with their Nintendo Switch system and watch it come to life in the game. After downloading the free Version 2.0 software update, now available in Nintendo eShop, players will be able to race up to two karts against each other on one Nintendo Switch in Split-Screen Mode!
You can check out some of the features of the new update in action by viewing a new trailer here. In the new Relay Race Mode, two to four players can play with one Mario or Luigi Kart and one Nintendo Switch system, taking turns as the game changes between players in an eight-lap race!* The software update also adds a new Cup – the Luigi Cup – with unlockable course customizations and three new courses: Windmill Meadows, Music Broadway and King Boo’s Courtyard. Place high enough in all three courses to unlock a new in-game kart customization: Luigi’s Poltergust!
If you’re a Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit fan who’s hoping to add a second kart to take advantage of the new Split-Screen action, or if you’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to try the game yourself, now is a great time to pick up a kart! Starting on Nov. 21, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit will be available at a suggested retail price of $59.99 (a savings of $40) as part of Nintendo’s Black Friday offerings. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit includes one kart – with either Mario or Luigi in the driver’s seat, depending on the set you choose – plus four gates, two arrow signboards that can be used to enhance courses and a USB charging cable for the kart. The software comes in the form of a free download from Nintendo eShop, which, once downloaded, syncs up with the physical kart.** Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit was created in partnership by Nintendo and Velan Studios.
