There’s more to do in Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, the Nintendo Switch game that includes an actual remote control car as a peripheral. Nintendo released a patch with new content for the game. Once you grab the free Mario Kart Live update, you’ll be able to challenge the Mario Cup and earn a Yoshi kart.

The Mario Cup is found in the Mario Kart Live Grand Prix mode. There are three new “track” options with it. You’ll race through Slick Circuit, Barrel Temple, and Fossil Fields if you select it. The first involves lots of oil slicks, which can obscure your view. The second tosses barrel obstacles in your way. The last one has a fossil theme.

Here’s a better look at the new content.

As for the Yoshi kart, it is a new Mario Kart Live cosmetic option. (In the game, you can earn new karts, outfits for Mario, and extra horn sounds.) Nintendo revealed that people who download the update, challenge Mario Cup, and get at least a third place finish will earn the kart. You can then use it in every possible course in the game.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit Mario and Luigi bundles and the new free update are available now. People who need more arrows and gates can print them.
