Nintendo has announced Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit and it’s coming out this October.

Created in partnership with Velan Studios, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit brings the Mario Kart series into the real world by using a Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite.

In it, you will race against opponents using a physical Kart.

The physical Kart responds to boosts in-game and in the real world, stops when hit with an item, and can be affected in different ways depending on the race.

You will place gates to create a custom course layout in your home after assembly, and then drive your kart through the four gates to make a course in any shape you want.

Then, race against Koopalings in Grand Prix, unlock a variety of course customizations and costumes for Mario or Luigi, and play with up to four players in local multiplayer mode.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which is available in a Mario Set or Luigi Set, will release on October 16 and set you back $99.99 or the regional equivalent.

The game was announced as part of Nintendo’s Mario-centric Direct this morning celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Mario franchise.
