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: EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier sets out tough stance for United Kingdom talks
