Mario Kart has a history of creating wild and creative race tracks. But this latest game has both the most surprising and the most mundane tracklist we've seen yet: Your living room. Introducing Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, a new Switch game that takes place in the real world.

Mario, the mustachioed mascot of Nintendo, recently celebrated his 35th anniversary. This included a slew of announcements, including a Nintendo Switch 3D Mario collection and a 35 player battle royale game. One of the stranger announcements they made was the new Mario Kart game.



Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is an augmented reality spin-off of the classic racing game series. Instead of controlling a digital racer on a digital track, the player controls a real-world RC car with a camera attached to it. The camera then feeds the driver's vision to the Nintendo Switch. The game screen then overlays the real-world footage with augmented visuals, creating a Mario Kart style game set in your own living room. Players can use items and power-ups, and even engage in up to four-person multiplayer, if they have multiple physical Karts, that is.

This game is the result of a partnership with Velan Studios. The base game will be available on October 16 for $99.99 and will come with either a Mario or a Luigi kart.
