Nintendo launched a multi-player ‘Mario Kart Live’ update! | Source: Nintendo

Big things are coming to the Nintendo universe! The software company announced two exciting features today, just in time for the gift-giving season.

First, the company announced its Version 2.0 software update for Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, available now for free in the Nintendo eShop. This update allows players to race up to two karts against each other on one Nintendo Switch in Split-Screen Mode. Finally, you can use the spinning turtles to disarm your opponent in real-time (imagine the look on their face!).

The update also introduced a new Relay Race Mode, in which two to four players can play with one Mario or Luigi Kart and one Nintendo Switch system by taking turns as the game changes between players in an eight-lap race. After kids have mastered the relay race, they can try out the new Luigi Cup, which features unlockable course customizations and three new courses: Windmill Meadows, Music Broadway, and King Boo’s Courtyard. If players place high enough in all three courses, they can unlock a new in-game kart customization: Luigi’s Poltergust!

Next, Nintendo launched a demo version of its new game, Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain. Although the actual game doesn’t launch until Dec. 3, Nintendo is giving fans a chance to get familiar with the game in trial mode. Players can test out stretch mode, which features a sampling of puzzles that test kids’ abilities in three categories: visualize, identify, and compute. Kids can also try out party mode, in which up to four players can go head to head to earn the most points by completing various activities.
