This is because Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is an online-only game that requires you to download it from the Nintendo eShop. Players can place gates around their home to create their own special racetracks, and then play on them using their Switch console. The excitement this led to has made Home Circuit the number one gaming must-buy for the upcoming holiday season.
If you've pre-ordered a copy of Mario Kart Live Home Circuit, check out the set-up instructions below for a look at how it all works.
Using augmented reality, the Home Circuit kits connect the kart in the set to your Switch or Switch Lite via the accompanying Home Circuit game.
Available in Mario and Luigi varieties, the real-life Mario Kart game has an October 16 release date. The latest Mario Kart title brings the race to your home as players control a real kart with their Nintendo Switch and navigate a customizable course around their house. Race in different Grand Prix Cups to unlock customization options for your own Custom Race, or play with up to 3 friends as you race for the finish line.
To coincide with the release of Super Mario 3D All-Stars on Switch, a collection of three of Mario's greatest adventures, Nintendo have teamed up with Puma to pay homage to the games on Puma's Future Rider, Clyde and RS-Fast shoe models, filling them to the brim with an array of Mushroom Kingdom-inspired treats. However, the karts are controlled by humans, who are seemingly enjoying turning the tables, and chasing their cats around with Mario and Luigi.
