Ready. Set. Go! … Now you can create your own course and race a real-world Mario Kart for hours of fun with the family. We did just that thanks to Nintendo. They sent us the Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit kit plus some added goodies so that we could experience it for ourselves!

As someone who doesn’t always do well playing video games, I appreciate a good racing game because in most cases, I know how to play. It somehow evens the playing field for me with the kids (at least for now since they don’t drive) and allows me to enjoy doing something with them that they actually like doing. Of course. Nintendo took it to a whole other level with Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit.

Not only do you get to race but you can actually create your own race course and have it be part of the game. So, it keeps things interesting allows you and everyone playing to be creative. Between watching the Kart go around the course you designed and watching the game itself to see what the driver sees, there are various ways for you to enjoy the game. We loved seeing how slow the Kart went around the course but if you watch it in the game itself, it feels like the Kart is going super fast.

The Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit package comes with everything you need to make this happen. The kit includes a Mario Kart car (both Mario and Luigi are available), 4 gates, and 2 arrow barriers. Once you have the kit, simply download the game from the Nintendo eShop for Free. Plus, it is super easy to set up! The cool thing is that you can add more items from your home to really make the course your own.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit provides a unique way to spend time with the family. So much so that we made a whole afternoon of it. We took turns racing the car, created various race courses and even had a little competition to see who could go around the track in the least amount of time. Even though I cam in last place every single time and crashed into a few cones, I really enjoyed it. I know the kids enjoyed laughing at me!

They had such a good time playing that they even added a Luigi race car to their Christmas wish list so that they can race each other. You can watch a short video of our Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit experience below…
