To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., Nintendo has announced Mario Kart Live Home Circuit, an AR toy game that combines radio-controlled cars with the Nintendo Switch.
Included in the package are a camera-equipped kart radio-controlled car, a gate and arrow sign that creates the course, and the game software (download).
The kart can be wirelessly connected to the Nintendo Switch, allowing you to control it from a subjective perspective while watching footage from the on-board camera.
By setting up your own gates, you can set up a free course on the floor of your room and other areas. The camera recognizes the gate and reflects it to the game software, so you can play augmented reality Mario Kart with your home as a course and digital rivals and items.
And by bringing karts and switches together, you'll be able to support the multiplayer competition that makes Mario Kart so exciting. You can actually bump karts against each other, combining physical and in-game racing.
The price is 9,980 yen plus tax for the package of one kart, a circuit building kit including gates, and game software. There will be a Mario set and a Luigi set, with only the karts being different. The release date is October 16.
New hardware products to coincide with the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. include Game & Watch Super Mario Bros.
