Mario Kart GP VR - Namco is Making it Happen

Postby McMurphy » Sat Jun 24, 2017 10:12 am

During a presentation for the VR Zone Shinjuku arcade in Tokyo, Namco showed up the first footage of an VR version of Mario Kart. Namco has long produced Mario Kart GP, the arcade version of Mario Kart that can be found in select arcades. It is unclear if these VR stations would ever hit North America, but let's hope so.

Here is the footage in question:


Thoughts?

I have had the chance to play the arcade version of Mario Kart (I actually played a round with GS* member, Missie, at Disneyland), and it, in my opinion, is not as good as the main at-home franchise, but it is still fun, and it would be really cool to try it out in VR.

Man, MK in VR would be crazy stupid fun. That part where she throws the shell would be awesome to do. Especially if I can ride in one of those little carts :D Make a home version of it (kart included) and I'd take out a second mortgage to pay for it!
