The Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit will be available on October 16 for USD 99.99 per kart.
Super Mario Bros. 35
It’s Super Mario Bros. and Battle Royale mixed together, just like with Tetris 99. You pit against 34 other players in real-time as you race through different levels and dish out nasty attacks on other players by putting all of your defeated enemies to their levels. You can download Super Mario Bros. 35 as a Nintendo Switch Online exclusive on October 1.
There are more promotions happening for the 35th Anniversary up until February 2021, so expect a ton of merchandise and even special events and contents in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart Tour and Splatoon 2.
