For the majority of gamers, playing Mario Kart requires a Nintendo home console or handheld, with the most recent release being Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Nintendo Switch. This VR version of Mario Kart puts you in the kart itself.More news: Cubs acquire ace Jose Quintana from the White Sox
The hype surrounding Mario Kart VR was already at an all time high, despite the fact that it will initially only be available at one arcade in Japan, but this new footage makes the experience even more tantalizing.

Mario Kart VR will work using the HTC Vive headset for accurate tracking of not only your head movements, but your arms too, whether they're turning the steering wheel or throwing a shell or banana. In addition to being able to step into the world of Mario Kart, visitors can also test their Saiyan potential in Dragon Ball VR or witness the intensity of a clash between massive Gundams in the Gundam VR game Daiba Assault. Though the "Mario Kart" arcade machines originate in Japan, they often appear in American arcades (and movie theatre lobbies). It's worth noting though, that this is an officially licensed Nintendo project, though another Japanese game developer, Namco (the company behind PacMan), is actually making the game.More news: Nintendo Ceases Production of the New 3DS in Japan
