You’ve played Mario Kart on your phone, on a GameBoy, on a home console at even at a local arcade. Now, you can play Mario Kart using weird plastic toys in your living room and annoy your cats at the same time.

I have no interest in ever playing Mario Kart Live, but I’m extremely intrigued to see how well this strange AR/Toy combo works in the real world. My gut tells me this thing is going to be a weird mess that we won’t talk about in a few weeks, like Labo. But who knows! Maybe it will great. Or at least just... fine.

Beyond Mario Kart Live, other stuff is coming out this week too. Check out the full list below:

If I was a kid, I would be begging for Mario Kart Live for Christmas, so there's a part of me who hopes it's really cool for those who get it. ❤
