Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is Mario Kart like never before, promising all of the Mario Kart fun but with a massive twist.

That’s because Home Circuit comes with an actual miniature Kart and physical props to help you build your very own course at home.

Once the course is created you can race your miniature kart around it, all the while watching your progress and controlling your course via your Nintendo Switch.

The game is available for pre-order in two ‘versions’ – Mario or Luigi – and it’s sure to bring single and multi-player mayhem: the perfect gift for Switch fans this Christmas.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit comes with course props and a kart

Any Mario Kart Live Home circuit pre-order means that come release day, October 16, you’ll be in poll position for a more realistic Mario Kart experience.

But whether you choose Mario or Luigi, you’ll be able to compete with your kart on courses built from your real-life circuit.

The course won’t be a quiet solo trundle though: As your Switch shows the view from the camera fitted to the kart, the game will populates the course with classic powerup and other racers.

So expect red shells and mushrooms to impact your driving, with bursts of speed and sudden stops.

Mario Kart Live Home: Circuit should play just like any Mario Kart game. The only difference is that you made the course, and an actual miniature kart will be racing it.

To make things even more interesting, the game promises ocean, desert and other themed takes on your own course.

Plus, up to three friends or family can race with you – just as long as they have their own miniature karts, copies of the software and their own Nintendo Switches to hand.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit pre-orders are available now, but one important question remains: will you choose Mario or Luigi?
