Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit launches this Friday, bringing Mario Kart into your living room. However, it’s definitely not a traditional Mario Kart experience. In fact, the last original, mainline Mario Kart game we got was Mario Kart 8, which released on Wii U in 2014. Since then, we’ve seen Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Kart Tour, and now, Mario Kart Live. So, we want as many NVC fans as we can get to answer this question for next week’s episode:
Is it time for a new, traditional Mario Kart game?
Bonus: Do you want to see a new Mario Kart game on Switch, or can you wait until whatever hardware Nintendo comes out with next?
Here’s how you can participate:
- Create a Yappa account or sign in with a Facebook, Google, Disqus, or LinkedIn account.
- Look for the video commenting box at the bottom of our articles on both desktop and mobile web. Note that the feature is currently not available on our mobile apps.
- Hit the green bar with the speech bubble icon, allow access to your mic and camera if your permission settings require that step.
- You can choose between audio and video recording. We’d prefer video to see your face (and only your face, please — although Samus and Master Chief helmets or God of War face paint, etc. are cool with us), but you can use the audio-only option if you’re having a bad hair day.
- When you can see your face, hit record to start recording your video. Hit stop when you’re done. You can leave a message that’s up to 45 seconds long.
- You can rewatch your video and then choose to cancel or post.
- If you’d rather upload a video you recorded separately, you can use the Upload Media function to do so. This’ll be handy to show off your amiibo or classic games collections. But please, no copyrighted content.
- You can watch and share videos from fellow commenters by clicking on their icons and you can follow contributors you like as well.
Now go and Get the Thing!
Logan Plant is the production assistant for Nintendo Voice Chat, and after over 300 hours in Mario Kart 8 on Wii U and Switch combined, he definitely thinks it’s time for Mario Kart 9. Find him on Twitter @LoganJPlant.
