Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit Preorder Guide: Release Date, Editions, And More

Nintendo is once again fusing video games and physical accessories with Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. It essentially brings Mario Kart to life in your living room. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, you’ll probably want to keep a close eye on retailers’ preorder listings ahead of its Friday, October 16 release. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is currently only available to preorder at Walmart, where it’s already sold out.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit comes in two distinct sets, one with a Mario RC kart and another with Luigi. Each set also comes with four checkpoint gates, two arrow signboards, and a USB-C charging cord to power the kart. The game itself will be free to download from the eShop.

The kart has a mounted camera that keeps track of progress as you maneuver it around the room with the Nintendo Switch (or Nintendo Switch Lite). You can get creative with the layout of your track, provided you have the room to move the checkpoint gates around freely. The kart’s movements will appear on the Switch’s screen alongside added elements such as boost pads, items, and defined track limits. The kart will react to obstacles and power-ups in the game. For example, if you run into something, the kart will stop, and if you get a boost, the kart will speed up.

With one set, you can play Grand Prix mode against Koopalings and work to unlock new course customization features and costumes. Though four-player local multiplayer is supported, you’ll need additional Mario Kart Live sets and Switch consoles to do so.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit preorders aren’t widely available at this time. Walmart currently has both sets up for preorder but they’re both sold out at the moment. Placeholder listings are live at Best Buy, but you’ll have to wait a while longer to actually reserve a kit.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is just one of several new games Nintendo announced for the plumber’s 35th anniversary celebration. Super Mario 3D All-Stars released last week, and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury launches next February.
