Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit , this new AR compatible gaming game adaptation of the racer 'arcade, just released and it has already received a grim reminder: cats exist.
As VG24 / 7 spotted, a short video from Japanese Twitter Yamanoneko_23 has gone viral, not because it shows how amazing Mario Kart Live can be, but because it highlights one of its critical design flaws: it's the absolute cat bait. Is there anything more alluring than a delicate arrangement of plastic goal posts traversed by a small swattable box that moves in bursts and makes noise? Coupled with the feline propensity to get caught doing disruptive silliness in front of the camera, Mario Kart Live is precision engineered catnip.
Yamanoneko_23 is not alone either. A simple search on Twitter revealsthe heaps of players who have encountered similar furry obstacles, felines and canines. Still, I think the cats have the advantage here. After years of dropping things off the shelves, accumulating obscure items, and causing trouble usually on purpose, they've acquired the expertise to activate Mario Kart Live i's release into a real circus. We don't stand a chance in this particular war, so we'd probably be better off treating them as bonus track dangers, sort of like Bullet Bill equivalents in real life. You have to clear the gaps and avoid the pitfalls in Mario Kart 8, so it's only fair that Mario Kart Live has its own almost inevitable obstacles.
Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is back in stock , but it won't be for long, so if you want to start building pistonsare soon, you might want to get started now.
