Mario Kart is taking a step into the world of immersive VR thanks to Bandai Namco’s spanking new VR Zone in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Mario Kart Arcade GP VR is among several VR "experiences" confirmed this week for the new venue. VR Zone is a "virtual reality arcade" powered by HTC's Vive headset, which works in conjunction with special chairs featuring physical controls like sticks and steering wheels.

As you can see in the footage above, motion-sensing devices on your arms allow you to physically "throw" items in the game. Development is being handled by Bandai Namco, which has produced other Mario Kart arcade titles in the past.
