Nintendo’s shiny new toy, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, is now available to buy on Switch. It might be rubbing people’s cats up the wrong way, but this clever, creative way to play one of the best multiplayer series of all time is certainly providing lots of enjoyment for new buyers.
If you’ve read/watched our full review of the game and the included RC car, you’ll have seen Mario and Luigi doing laps of the nicely carpeted Nintendo Life office. But, as it happens, you can take things one step further and have the karts going over ramps, under tunnels, and even for a quick drive in the garden.
In the video above, you’ll see the folks at FamilyGamerTV testing out Mario Kart Live on a homemade course consisting of ramps, bridges, and tunnels. It proves that, if you’re creative enough and have the room, you can build multi-level tracks that see your karts going over bumps and underneath hidden secret passageways.
Naturally, you’re not going to be able to create Everest-like slopes, but it’s good to see that the karts can manage to climb moderately steep inclines should you wish to build a monster of a track at home – perhaps you could create long, slanted shelves that have the karts rising to head height and back? As a nice bonus, if your kart falls off, you then get to play the role of Lakitu and plonk your fallen racer back onto the track!
