Mario Kart VR Looks Absolutely Ridiculous

Bandai Namco is working on a virtual-reality version of Mario Kart, and it looks absolutely ridiculous.

The new game is titled Mario Kart Arcade GP VR, and we’ve gotten the first look at what it looks like in action – you can view that featured above.

Bandai Namco is launching the game under their new Shinjuku-based “VR Zone Shinjuku” event, where users don HTC Vive headsets and enjoy VR-based experiences.

It’s worth mentioning games found in Bandai Namco’s previous VR location test, VR Zone, will also be playable in this area. The VR center will open to the public tomorrow in Tokyo, Japan.

You can read more about the entire lineup of VR-based games on the event’s official website.
