Mario Kart Arcade GP VR Coming To USA For A Limited Time
It's like you can reach out and touch Luigi's death stare.
Bandai Namco is bringing a batch of VR games from Japan to the USA, including Mario Kart Arcade GP VR. The VR games will be available to play at a VR Zone Portal in Washington DC, for a limited time starting on October 1.
Mario Kart VR runs on the HTC Vive VR system, and lets you grab items out of the air to toss at your opponents, along with haptic feedback for all those bumps and hits. The VR Zone will also feature Argyle Shift, which puts you in the role of a futuristic test pilot on a mission to drop a mech into a combat zone, and Ski Rodeo, an alpine skiing game.
All three games will be available for a 6-month engagement at Union Station near the National Mall in DC. The games will cost $8 apiece to try. Bandai Namco hasn't announced further plans for other locations or dates, so if you're interested you may need to make plans to visit the nation's capital sooner rather than later.
We first got a look at Mario Kart GP VR last year, when it was exclusive to Japan and headed to London. The lower perspective is certainly a big change from traditional Mario Kart, so give it a look.
