Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is a unique experience that gets even better when you get creative with your circuits. To give your circuits that extra pizazz, My Nintendo Account users in the US and Europe can claim the MK Live Course Decoration Kit for 600 Platinum Points plus postage (for us it was €6.99). This physical reward will be sent to your address and can take about 10 days depending on your region.
The Course Decoration Kit includes 12 Billboards that can be folded in half. There are also 4 chevron indicators, 5 barrels and two Warp Pipes. The Warp Pipes and Barrels require cutting out and putting together in order to take shape, the result of which you can see in this image.
Once all the pieces have been folded and fitted, you can start using them to mark out your circuits. While it might not be able to fill out an entire circuit (unless it is an extremely short circuit) the Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit Course Decoration kit is a neat way to decorate your courses and creat some cool track features like a fork in the circuit, obstacles or indicate a shortcut.
Each piece looks really good and is made of high quality card. The billboards for example feature advertisements like Mario Motors, BananaBoy, Undead motors and others that you may recognize in other Mario Kart games. The only setback is that you can’t appreciate the quality of the Billboards when playing. The camera itself on the Mario Kart or Luigi Kart is not HD and so the picture is not high enough quality to see every detail. It is a bit of a shame but at least in the real world they look fantastic.
