Mario Kart Arcade GP VR
5 Japanese Arcade Games That Need to Come West
If you’ve ever had a go on one of the Mario Kart Arcade GP games, you know that they’re a blast to play, and are quite a varied experience from the console versions of Mario Kart. But if you want something that’s completely different, then you’ll want to take a trip down to VR Zone Shinjuku where you can experience Mario Kart in VR. You can drive around Peach’s castle next to some of your favorite Mario characters, avoiding piranha plants and throwing green shells. Who wouldn’t want to try it?
Unfortunately, not many people will get the opportunity to do so. Nintendo has already said that there aren’t any current plans to bring VR to the Switch, so we won’t see this on a console any time soon. Most Japanese people probably won’t even get the chance to play it, as Mario Kart Arcade GP VR is currently exclusive to VR Zone Shinjuku. Hopefully they’ll at least bring one or two of the machines outside of the country. It’s a shame that so many people will miss out on this unique experience.
