Are you ready for some Mario Kart VR action? Mario Kart VR has already hit Japan and London and now it’s hitting the US. Now you can finally immerse yourself in some exciting karting action while sitting in a physical vehicle with pedals and a steering wheel. Sign me up for that.
The game is at Washington DC’s Union Station right now. But you have to be quick if you want to play it because Bandai Namco’s “VR Zone Portal” is only in town till March 2019. It sounds like it’s not as large as the VR Zone attraction in Tokyo and Osaka, but you’ll still be able to choose between several cool VR games. There’s Mario Kart VR, Argyle Shift, and Ski Rodeo.
All three of these are open on a first-come-first-served basis with no reservation needed. Obviously, you can expect longer queues for the Mario game since it is the star of the show.
Mario Kart VR lets racers wear HTC Vive headsets and play in the first person. For instance, you can reach out and grab virtual items from balloons and dash weapons using hand movements. It is the first time that Mario Kart and VR have merged.
