To celebrate Mario's 35th Anniversary, Nintendo has announced that a new augmented reality racing game called Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit will be hitting shelves on October 16, 2020. Players control a physical remote control car with either Mario or Luigi at the wheel using their Nintendo Switch. Via augmented reality and a camera located on the remote control car, the track, other opponents, and items will appear on the Switch screen.
