Best answer: To protect your privacy, you cannot record screenshots or videos using the capture button on the Nintendo Switch while playing Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. Go-karts are basically wheeled cameras that roam your home, so you will need extra privacy. If you want to record your races or share your cat’s reactions to karting, then you will need to use a capture card.
Please keep your privacy with Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit
When you play Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, the Nintendo Switch screen displays a live stream of what the map camera sees. Because these go-karts are intended for use in your home, it is possible that screenshots can capture annoying or even compromising images. The game does not allow you to take screenshots or videos to protect your family’s privacy.
Since this game is child-oriented, it helps parents to be calm knowing that their child will not be able to accidentally upload photos or videos to the Internet while playing.
Fortunately, if you are aware of the risks of recording in your home, and still want to take screenshots and videos, there is a way to do it.
How do I record Mario Kart Live videos and screenshots?
Simply put, you will need a recording card. By connecting your Nintendo Switch to the recording card and then connecting the recording card to your computer, you will be able to stream live or record everything displayed on your Switch screen. If you need setup help, see our guide on how to record or stream a Nintendo Switch game using the capture card.
Note that the Nintendo Switch and the kart must be at least 16 feet apart and there must be no walls between them for the game to work properly. So, you will need a computer and a recording card to also be close to the map, otherwise you will have signal problems.
I was absolutely thrilled to be recording a video of my cat lurking Mario Kart Live karting. I wish there was a way to simply agree to some in-game warning that allowed me to take screenshots. Still, since this is a child-oriented toy, it makes sense to completely eliminate the possibilities of video and screenshots.
