Mario fans in Orange County are in luck. Mario Kart VR is in Irvine for the next stop in its US tour. The game launched on June 12th at VR Zone Portal Irvine, located at the K1 Speed entertainment center. Players will get the chance to hop inside a Mario Kart and explore the Mushroom kingdom. The immersive VR experience previously had tenures in Washington, DC, London and Tokyo.
The multiplayer VR experience runs on HTC Vive and can incorporate four players at a time. You’ll be able to choose between Mario Kart VR, Argyle Shift, and Ski Rodeo.
