If you haven't picked up Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit yet and happen to be located in the UK, now might be a perfect time.
According to Eurogamer, it's the cheapest it's ever been available for in this region, reduced from £99.99 now £79.99. That's a great value when you consider everything that's included! This offer is available at Amazon UK and Game, and allows you to select from the Mario and Luigi karts. Be warned, though, the Mario one may sell out quickly!
In our Nintendo Life review, we said this unique take on the series was a joyful fusion of reality and fiction - awarding it eight out of ten stars.
"Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is a startlingly authentic "mixed reality" recreation of Nintendo's most popular racing series which encourages you to be inventive with your course designs and does an excellent job of combining your real-world surroundings with the fantasy environments of the Mushroom Kingdom; add in a second player (or three) and it becomes even more compelling."
So, what are you waiting for? Get racing!

I saw a lot for £59.99 already
It was a cool concept, but the requirement of space and specific conditions were too steep to invest in. (Looks over at my minimally used LABO kits 😒)
Where's a release of Peach?
Would be cool for an hour tops then never used again Nah.
Well since I'm american, I don't have a sale here so... TO EBAY.
Still too expensive considering that there is no cartridge for a game tied to a PHYSICAL TOY. It makes even less sense to make the software digital only when the game is unlikely to ever be played outside of the home.
I refused to buy Starlink for similar reasons, even when the game and accessories were dirt cheap (invest $300+ in toys when the cartridge itself doesn't even contain the full game?).
I'll still consider Mario Kart Live if it drops to AU$50, but sheesh, £80 is not far from the standard price of AU$150.
@Silly_G I hear ya, but is physical card not available in your region? I bought physical "base" Starlink for nothing and completed the game 99% - there is just one mission in the game requiring a purchase of a different ship/weapon, which I never did & I will survive. The game was great for its run.
Oh, and the reason I don't replay it is actually the hassle of switching game cards haha so wouldn't have minded a digital version. But I play almost exclusively docked...
@molkom : I was referring to the fact that the cartridge doesn't contain the full game on it and has a mandatory download requirement.
I will definitely get this game when it is on sale here in North America. Seems like great fun to be had with other people involved
oh yeah... better...
@Silly_G I can't think of any cartridges that include the full game as most require patches and updates.
I assume you also refused to buy BotW and Animal Crossing as neither of those contain the full game on the cart.
Games an absolute blast! Me and
my daughter pass the controller back and forth competing in time trials!
Played it for about an hour after turning the house upside down to make space... Hasn't been played again since :/
Bought my son this for Christmas. Its amusing enough but severely limited to your available play space. We have a reasonable size living room but even then the novelty didn't last particularly long.
A cool concept if nothing else.
Let me know when you can grab 2 for £39.99 and I will think about it
@hakjie11 who’s selling for that?
The big Mario Fan in me wants this because, Mario. That, and it looks fun and I love the Mario Kart Series, but then like a lot of others here, it’s down to room and space & I don’t have a big living room.
I know I’d get it, play it a couple of times this year, then it’ll end up the same way as the Lego Super Mario Sets my Wife bought me for Christmas...packed away in a Lego Storage Box until we get a bigger place.
So tempted but without the space this will likely end up on a shelf as a cool collectable in my house. The intent is to enjoy using something like this vs just putting it on display. Pass for me with the space I have.
I haven't got any room in my tiny British house for it.
3 years from now the batteries will be dead or dying. Bring back the 80's/90's ;p
I've said it before, and people said I was wrong, but this ***** will eventually be $10, and sooner than later. Flash in the pan gimmick that isn't that fun.
In the dusty pile with the Labo, or up front with ring fit? We all know the answer, don't we?
I do NOT find this to be a surprise. It was a unique idea, but.... it required way to much time (to set up each race) and too much space for a decent track. This was a horrible sub for a true Mario Kart. I can see it becoming popular for full set collectors as the price drops over the next few years.
Oh dear, a price cut, I don't think £20 will turn many heads.
Its also available for same price at Currys PCworld and if you buy another switch game you get an extra 10% off as its part of their switch game offer "save 10% when you buy 2 selected Nintendo Switch games".
@hakjie11 Where have you seen this for £60, please?
Can we get some US sales pleeeez??
@Pj1 @Lord I saw it on street retailers but can find cheaper ones easily in online shops too like the below, this one is £45 only :
@hakjie11 Thank You.
