Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit combined with LEGO Super Mario for an enhanced interactive experience

LEGOing the extra mile

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit and LEGO Super Mario are pretty unique experiences on their own, but what happens when you bring the two together? The gang at Playfool did just that by strapping LEGO Super Mario onto the back of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit's Kart!

Along with LEGO Super Mario dangling off the back of the kart, a new set of markers were created that LEGO Super Mario can scan as you drive over them. These mark the start and end of the race, add in time bonuses, allow for item pick-ups, and even let you squash some enemies while you're driving. You get all the sound effects from LEGO Super Mario in real-time as you're speeding around your custom track!

ESRB rating for Switch version of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes pops up

That's some Marvelous news!

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 made its way to Switch, but the original never did. That game has remained on Wii U up to this point, but it looks like a Switch port might be in the works.

The ESRB has just added a listing for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes on Switch to their site. Neither publisher or developer have mentioned any possibilities of this port, so it looks like the ESRB may have jumped the gun on this one. While we wait for official confirmation, you can check out a quick recap on the game below.

LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes features an original story crossing the entire Marvel Universe. Players take control of Iron Man, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Captain America, Wolverine and many more Marvel characters as they unite to stop Loki and a host of other Marvel villains from assembling a super-weapon capable of destroying the world.

For a limited time, any purchase of a LEGO NES will also come with the above ice skating rink. The rink includes a booth and two minifigure skaters wearing never-seen-before winter sweaters. You only have one more day to grab this item, as the offer ends on Dec. 31st, 2020. Make your purchase here before it's too late!
