Bandai-Namco inaugurates another of its virtual reality salons, this time in the capital of the United States and with one of its stars: Mario Kart Arcade GP VR.
This same year, the Japanese company that owns Pac-Man announced the Portals initiative, which promised to take beyond Japan facilities such as VR ZONE. These are arcades equipped with visors in Osaka and Tokyo that offer experiences designed to be enjoyed in the HTC Vive with specific control schemes for each game. From sensors and guns for Ghost in the Shell: Arise to the cockpit of a helicopter gunship in Godzilla are some of the examples we already announce here.
London was the destination they chose as their first stop outside their home nation with VR ZONE Portals UK, leaving for later what for many would have been the most obvious initial choice: the United States. Today it opens to the public VR ZONE Portals US, your new store in Washington DC, and it seems that to avoid possible criticism for reserving the most popular options to Japanese soil, they bring with them Mario Kart Arcade Games, which seeks to attract the general public to VR in a multiplayer experience for 4 participants, which includes visor, steering wheel, pivoting chair and trackers to launch the different elements with your hands.
Games are also available Argyle Shift and Ski Resorts to be enjoyed without reservations on the site, which will remain operational until March of 2019.
