Topic: MarioKart Live Multiplayer Grayed Out

Posts 1 to 17 of 17

I bought a 2nd switch so my kids could play Mario Kart Live against each other. My first switch is a regular switch. My second is a switch lite. The switch lite always has multiplayer grayed out where it cannot be selected. I have tried multiple accounts. I have reinitialized. Made sure there are no parental limitations. Everything I read says you can play multiplayer with a Lite Switch. PLEASE HELP!

@Storeytime You need another car for player 2. Its one player per car with Mario Kart Live.

Mario Kart 8 does have split screen multiplayer, though.

@Storeytime If you have two cars, both Switch consoles need wifi on. (long press Home button to toggle wifi on/off)

If it's not that, Im not sure what the issue is.

Wifi works great. Multiplayer just doesn't work

Been on chat support for about a half hour so far no help.

Just weird how multiplayer is grayed out.

Just saw you say you tried support. So you probably got pointed to the pages I pasted above.

@Storeytime I hope someone else here has run into this, and can help.

If you get desperate, I've seen a couple games that don't allow multiplayer until after you've played the game, or gone through tutorial.

Completely undo, remove parental controls, if you havne't already.

I know it sucks being stuck. Good luck my friend.

Have the same issue here. Main Switch - multiplayer is there, can Host or Join.
Switch Lite - greyed out.
Have added all accounts to Lite. Uninstalled and re-installed. Removed all parental settings. Restarted. Nothing works. Expensive investment - 2x Karts and extra Switch Lite not to be able to play Multiplayer with 2 kids

Does each person have to do tutorial ...? I'm thinking that got missed on the Lite version?

I just figured it out. You have to complete 1 race in single player on each console before multiplayer is available.

Glad that's all sorted out .... Hope the racing goes well now!

@Storytime Ahh! I was right. I ran into that before with another game, and it was frustrating. Glad you figured it out!
