Mario Kart VR Arrives Next Month In Washington D.C.
You may remember us reporting on Mario Kart VR last year. It came out in select Japanese arcades and it’s now on the way to the U.S. on October 1. Unfortunately it’s only going to be in one location to start, but hopefully we’ll see it expand across the nation.
Developed by Bandai Namco, the game utilizes the HTC Vive along with its motion controllers to put you inside a kart racing around the tracks. Weapons will be hanging above in balloons that you must reach up and grab. You’ll physically throw the turtle shells to wipe out your opponents! From everything we’ve heard it’s quite a fun experience, albeit short. If you’re interested in giving it a go, it’ll be at Union Station at the VR Zone Portal.
Washington D.C.'s Union Station will be the first U.S. location to debut the games you've been waiting for. Starting October 1, Argyle Shift, Mario Kart VR, and Ski Rodeo will be playable at the historic site. pic.twitter.com/cjFjCdroT7
