    I've 2x switches and 2x copies of Mario Kart Live on the way.

    I'm reading reviews about the RC cars being wifi controlled.

    The problem is both my switches are hacked and have never been online. Original firmware 1.0 is in both with emu band on latest.


    Is there anyway to play 2 player mario kart live without going online and getting banned?

    The Carts are connecting trought WIFI. No deed to configurate WIFI. The NSP OF Mario Kart is on the way because there is no GameCard!

    Is this confirmed working?
    I have a modded and unmodded switch, but don't really fancy this in one player mode...
    Can a modded switch link & play with a modded one?...

    I have no idea about can modded switches play each other, but for the official game there is this. I don't see why it would matter that the two switches are modded since it's offline but I could be wrong.

    Does Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit have multiplayer?
    Yes, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit does have multiplayer. But it isn’t exactly the kind of multiplayer you might expect from a Mario Kart game. Since the game does revolve heavily around the physical toys, everyone is going to need both a Nintendo Switch and an actual kart. There’s also no online that we know of, which means everything is going to be done locally.

    So you would need to buy two or more karts but that's if they sell them separate from the game or how much they cost. I assume they do or else this modded release is completely useless. The game doesn't play without them.

    From the modding community about the release I only get more questions and no answers yet. You can buy a kit but I think they are mostly sold out everywhere unless you want to pay $200 on from a seller on Ebay or Amazon. I know I'm not buying one period thus I'm just completely passing on this game.

    I have checked it and it doesn't need internet connection. It's working on local wifi without connection to router/internet.

    Hi, i have two switch: one banned and the other not. In the banned one the multiplayer button is not enabled so i can't make a multiplayer game, Just single player.
    Does someone has this problem? I tried sx os and athmosphere so i think is not related to cfw. In single player on banned works perfectly.

    No, it doesn't work and the strange thing is that if i use ofw on not banned switch and mario kart live downloaded from the eshop, doesn' t work too. It seems like it "knows" it is a modded console

    Thanks for the info...
    I guess that it must check-in with Nintendo's servers regardless of whether it actually plays online or not...

    That's a bummer. But it's typical Nintendo. Their mobile apps don't work without Internet Connection even if you are doing single player stuff.

    I'm hearing that other people on Reddit are having success playing single player mode with a modded Switch. I think it might require a "connected" Nintendo account. This might help if one of y'all want to try it:

    On single player it works perfectly on modded console and even banned one. The multiplayer doesn't work, only the multiplayer.
