Nintendo's new title for Switch pulls the AR racetrack into the players' living room.
Among many other new features, Nintendo celebrates the 35th birthday of Super Mario Bros. differs from the titles seen in the car racing series so far. In Mario Kart Live, players can control a real tiny remote-controlled car with a camera from the handheld, whose camera image can be tracked on the Switch’s display. However, the game doesn't end there, as the display also features a complete AR racetrack around the car, with add-on accessories and opponents that riders can fight by bypassing their own living room furniture.
