Mario Kart is the newest game to cross over into the real world via AR. Nintendo has launched Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which lets gamers drive a remote-controlled kart using the Switch console, evading virtual racers, and things.
Per Nintendo, the controls for driving the Mario kart is like any other Mario Kart game. Gamers first set up the 4 included gates to build the track, then take the car out, so the game learns the layout.
Through the camera installed on the back, gamers get an over-the-shoulder view of the kart. Players will view the real world due to augmented reality.
The camera also recognizes the gates, setting animations over them. Even the driver on the screen is an animated Mario. The game also spruces up a player’s dull old living room with a lick of virtual paint to make it look like an underwater track, desert, ice world, etc.
The Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit set arrives with either a Luigi or Mario kart, two arrow markers, four gates, and a USB charging cable. It will be launched on 16 October 2020 for USD 99.99.
