Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit (Switch; 10/16/20)

Created in partnership with Velan Studios, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit brings the fun of the Mario Kart series into the real world by using a Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite** system to race against opponents using a physical Kart. 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.*** Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which is available in a Mario Set or Luigi Set, launches on Oct. 16 at a suggested retail price of $99.99.

I think I might pick this up. I'll probably use it only once realistically, and yet I probably will still pull the trigger.

My son will want one. But we have no room to set this up, and everyone needs their own switch and car, so I don't see how that's feasible unless you have a lot of wealthy friends with kids.

I mean I have a second switch, and it's already annoying enough dealing with digital purchases that I can't see getting a third (now I have two kids who basically monopolize the original switch)

What a simultaneously awesome and stupid concept.

That really does sum it up quite well.

I wish Nintendo would have given us a new Mario Kart game instead of this. For those of us who bought Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U and then turn around and bought basically the same game for the Switch, it would have been a nice surprise.
