The new game in the series, which includes a remote control car and will allow us to design our own circuits, will arrive on Nintendo Switch in October.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit was one of the great surprises of the Nintendo Direct dedicated to the 35th anniversary of Super Mario last Thursday. Lovers of the company’s quintessential racing series will arrive this October on Nintendo Switch. After seeing the ad, we have new details about what the title box will include, its price, size and other aspects such as the battery life of Mario or Luigi’s car, depending on the edition we choose.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, what content does it include?
For starters, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit will have two editions: Mario and Luigi. The only difference between them is that one has Super Mario with his red kart and the other has his brother, Luigi, riding a green kart. From there, upon payment of 99.99 euros, we will find the following inside the box this October 16, the official launch date of the title worldwide:
- Game download code (1.1 GB in weight); does not include physical play
- Kart (from Mario or Luigi, depending on the edition)
- 4 arches that we will place on the ground
- 2 curve signals
- USB car charging cable
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit
We arrived at the car, the great protagonist of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. The autonomy of the vehicle, once it is fully charged, will be 1.5 hours (90 minutes) while we play at 150cc speed. In smaller displacement the battery will be bigger. Estimated charging time is about 3.5 hours (210 minutes).
According to Nintendo in the official statement, we can turn our house into a Mario Kart racing circuit and play in the first person on five-lap paths. There will be a total of 8 cups and a multitude of characters to compete against; to highlight, Bowser’s minions. We will also have the classic objects and we will be able to play with more members of the family at the same time with a total of four people; always local multiplayer and everyone with their car.
Finally, it should be said that the studio in charge of development is Velan Studios, an independent North American team born in 2016 with Activision veterans who worked on licenses such as Guitar Hero or Skylanders.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit will be released on October 16 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
