Mario Kart Live For Switch Is Significantly Discounted For Black Friday

Part toy, part pure gaming entertainment, Mario Kart Live is just $60 for Black Friday.


If you've ever fancied taking one of the vehicles in Mario Kart for a spin in real life, the good news is that you can do so right now for an attractive price thanks to this Black Friday deal that marks the superb Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit down to just $60. While you can't fit into the go-kart that comes with this game, you can use it to turn your home into a circuit and live out your wildest Mario racing fantasy.

Thanks to some impressive technology (and a mounted camera on the toy kart), Mario Kart Live gives you a direct view of the circuit in real time as you race under couches and around coffee table legs. It's not just a gimmick; you get a full Mario Kart experience here that you tailor to your environment, flinging blue turtle shells and grabbing power-ups as you drift around corners.

The box includes a number of cardboard accessories that you can use to shape your track, and once you've done a soft lap, you'll be off to the races in no time.

The deal listed above is for either the Mario or Luigi set, which will allow you to race as your favorite plumber. Or even better, you can grab both kits and start some friendly 2v2 competition in your home. Just try to watch out for your cats when you're speeding past the sofa.

"It's a genuinely impressive conceit, the same kind of technological sleight of hand that made the company's various Labo kits--which combine peripherals you fashion out of cardboard with the Switch hardware--seem so mystifying when they were unveiled," Kevin Knezevic wrote in GameSpot's Mario Kart Live review.
