Mario Kart Arcade GP VR announced for the HTC Vive

Mario Kart Arcade GP VR: Mario Kart in VR... all on the HTC Vive headset

If there needed to be a game made in VR, it would be Mario Kart... right?! Right. Well, Bandai Namco's VR Zone Arcade in Shinjuku, Tokyo has revealed Mario Kart Arcade GP VR... and it runs on the HTC Vive headset. Check it out:

There's not much known about it, but it looks like a VR port of a pre-existing arcade game, letting you sit in a real cockpit with a steering wheel - all while experiencing it in VR. This is Nintendo's first VR game, and it is perfect. There's no need to worry about your environment because your hands are attached to a steering wheel, while your vision is filled by the track and sidelines flying past you.

I'm still crying tears of joy at a Mario Kart game in VR... and it now makes me want to visit Tokyo, ASAP.
