Setting up Mario Kart Live is a pretty simple thing. Nintendo gives you guidance when it comes to real-world courses, and while it’s a simple process, some people can surely get confused with the creativity-demanding design tutorials. The RC Kart is pretty easy to control, and it’s pretty easy to forget that your kart is real when you’re looking at the Switch’s screen. On the other hand, one thing that a lot of people complained about was the fact that maintenance on the kart was a hassle. It’s only half a pound, and since there’s a real-life product involved, things like a ball of hair can get stuck in the tire, making it impossible to turn. All in all, the concept of bringing AR to the real world is still a bit immature, but this unique experience is definitely a dream come true for avid Mario Kart fans.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit Tips​

Use Props to Make it Interesting

Yes! Using props can definitely make your gaming experience better. Trust me, you don’t want to create a track with an open course, it can become boring real quick. You can add your props, like decoration stuff, pencils, books, and other distractions that can make things difficult for the racer.

Use Your Creativity

Honestly, the simple racing experience can become boring real quick. So you should create a classic Mario-based theme, like including cardboard to create a tunnel or bringing some other toys to make the stage look a lot spicier.
