Mario Kart makes the leap to virtual reality at new Tokyo VR entertainment center【Video】

For some time now, video game developer Bandai Namco has been giving us tiny bits of information about its soon-to-open Tokyo virtual reality complex, called VR Zone Shinjuku. Last month, we found out that one of the VR games at the facility will allow players to experience the world of anime Evangelion, but that’s not the only high-profile collaboration Bandai Namco has up its sleeve, since another of the attractions at VR Zone Shinjuku will be a virtual reality Mario Kart game.

While Nintendo usually flies solo in handling its intellectual properties, the Kyoto-based company has teamed up with Bandai Namco before, as in the jointly-developed Pokémon fighting game Pokkén Tournament. Bandai Namco has previously produced three arcade versions of Mario Kart, the most recent having been released in 2013, and now it’s ready to rev its digital engines again with the four-player Mario Kart Arcade Grand Prix VR.
