You can finally try Mario Kart VR outside of Japan; Bandai Namco’s surprising collaboration with Nintendo launched in London earlier this month. This new video offers you a closer look.
Footage from the video below was taken at the launch event for the racing experience, which is on show at the VR Zone in the Hollywood Bowl inside London’s O2 arena. It gives you a good look at the setup, which uses an HTC Vive, a pair for Vive Trackers for your hands, and a racing wheel and seat to provide a fully immersive experience.
Meanwhile, inside VR, you’ll be transported to the Mushroom Kingdom to play as either Mario, Luigi, Yoshi or Peach. As you steer around a vibrant track you can reach out with your hands to grab and toss items. The experience can be played with up to four players.
You can book a slot to play Mario Kart VR over on an official website. Later this summer the game will also come to VR Zone locations in Leeds and Tunbridge Wells. No word yet on a showing in the US, sadly.
