Virtual reality Mario Kart is here, and it looks amazing.

It was made by Nintendo and Bandai Namco. The VR aspect is run through an HTC Vive headset. The player then sits in a go-kart which moves in real-time.

The headset allows the player to look around the race course. You steer with a steering wheel, and you use hand sensors to grab power-ups. You can throw these items at other racers to get ahead.

Mario Kart VR is currently only available at an arcade in Shinjuku, Japan.
