Random: Sorry, Mario Kart Live – Sega Beat You To The Punch Over 30 Years Ago

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is one of those “wow” concepts which can’t help but raise a smile; being able to drive a tiny car around your living room and terrorise your pets is a good time, as you’ll know if you’ve consulted our review.

However, this isn’t the first time a Japanese video game company has attempted this trick (it’s also not Nintendo’s first dalliance with RC cars). Back in the late ’80s, Sega created the Sega Super Circuit, an arcade racing title where players controlled RC cars around a massive 80-metre race track, using a CCD video camera mounted on the vehicle.

Players would park themselves in a sit-down arcade cabinet not similar to those used in titles like OutRun and Daytona USA, and up to eight people could take part at any one time. An electronic scoreboard would show each player’s position in the race.
