This New Mario Kart Arcade Game Looks Cool

Mario Kart Arcade GP VR is in the the works for Japanese arcades, and a new video for it has us wishing it was coming to other parts of the world too.

The video below posted by 4GamerMovie (via NintendoEverything) shows off familiar Mario Kart racing action but from a new and cool-looking perspective. This VR version of Mario Kart puts you in the kart itself. And it looks much more intense. Piranha plants are chomping down directly on you and it’s cool to see a banana or green shell from the first-person perspective. Also, it gives a new sense of scale when you’re looking up at the castle or other objects. Here’s the video:

Mario Kart Arcade GP VR will open at Bandai Namco’s VR Zone arcades in Tokyo this month. According to Nintendo Everything, these arcades are also coming to London, though it remains to be seen if the game will be available anywhere else.

UploadVR reports that Mario Kart GP VR is made possible using the HTC Vive headset. The video below provides a closer look at how the game works and the tech behind it.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the latest entry in the console series. It came out in April for the Nintendo Switch and set a new franchise sales record in the US.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
