Mario Kart Arcade GP VR, the location-based VR game first launched at Bandai Namco’s Shinjuku-based VR Zone arcade last year, is taking its first big step outside of Japan soon as it comes to The O2 in London next month.
Mario Kart VR pits four players against each other using HTC Vive headsets, Vive Trackers, and motion platform outfitted with a steering wheel, acceleration and brake pedals.
Dodging giant Piranha Plants and Thwomps, you’ll have to watch out for Koopa as you toss the game’s iconic turtle shells and bananas at your fellow racers; participants can play as Mario, Luigi, Peach and Yoshi.
The iconic kart racer is set to arrive August 3rd at the VR Zone London Portal at Hollywood Bowl in The O2.
A turn with Mario Kart VR will cost £8 per person. Advanced booking is available by calling the O2 branches phone number, which is listed on Hollywood Bowl’s website.
Both Bandai Namco’s mech fighter Argyle Shift and haunted house sim Hospital Escape Terror are also available at the Hollywood Bowl O2 location.
