Last month, Nintendo announced Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit as part of the company’s 35th anniversary. While it was released on16 October, it didn’t make its way to our shores immediately.
But now, it looks like a number of local retailers have the game in stock. As with the initial announcement, you get to choose whether you want your game to come with a Mario RC cart, or one featuring Luigi instead.
To recap, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is an AR spinoff of the racing game series. The game comes with some props for you to set up your virtual track . And the RC kart comes with a camera on board to give you the same point of view you’d get from the standard Mario Kart games. The game then adds the special effects on the screen of your Nintendo Switch as you play.

While the game can be played via local multiplayer, it will naturally require another RC kart. Meaning your friends will need their own Switch, and their own copy of the game.
HeavyArm is selling each copy of the game for RM569 regardless of which RC kart it comes with. Alternatively, you can get them from M4G, which is selling them for RM649. There’s also Impulse Gaming, which is selling them for either RM599 or RM649 depending on which region the game is from.
