Nintendo is combining video games and physical accessories once again 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' listings. The kart set released October 16, but it's been hard to find in stock. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is currently available to buy at GameStop, but it will likely sell out fast.

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.
