SAVE 11%: As of Feb. 22, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit (the Luigi Set) is on sale on Amazon for just $89.28 — that’s almost $11 off its $99.99 MSRP, which is its biggest discount yet.
From two Cyber Weekend console bundles to the new Mario Red and Blue Edition Switch, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, Super Mario 3D All-Stars, and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, we’ve been hashtag-blessed with a ton of exciting Nintendo releases over the past few months. (And the rest of 2021 is only looking up, given everything announced at the latest Nintendo Direct.)
Nintendo typically abides by a “nothing ever goes on sale” policy when it comes to its bigger Switch drops (probably because they tend to sell out before a sale would ever be realistic), though you’ll occasionally run into $10 to $15 discounts on older games. But Mario Kart Live is a different story.
After promptly selling out in the wake of its October 2020 debut, the Luigi variant of the bestselling augmented reality game just went on sale and set a new record-low price for the second time this month: After dipping down to $90.53 on Amazon in early February, it’s now only $89.28, or 11% off its suggested retail price of $99.99. (That’s still not a huge discount, but as Mashable shopping reporter Leah Stodart noted at the time of that first sale, it’s a big deal considering the game was hard to find in stock not long ago.)
Mario Kart Live turns your home into a racetrack: Use the included gates to set up an IRL course under and around your furniture, then sync the remote control kart to your Switch to start driving. Note that a Switch or Switch Lite console is *not* included — you’ll have to buy one separately. (Amazon had some in stock at the time of writing, FYI.)
The kart features a tiny camera that lets you see where you’re driving and reacts accordingly as you hit Item Boxes, grab coins, and run into or over obstacles, so the full ~Mario Kart experience~ is still there — you’ll speed up with a Mushroom, slow down if you get hit by a Red Shell, etcetera. In-game environments, gates, and costumes get unlocked the more you play so you can further customize your courses down the (rainbow) road.
Hit the blue button below to snag the Luigi version of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit while it’s still on sale at that all-time-low price.
