Will location-based VR games like Mario Kart VR be lost to history?

July 14, 2018 / Brian Santo

I enjoy both virtual reality and Mario Kart games, so I’ve wanted to play Mario Kart VR ever since it was announced. Unfortunately, like 99.994 percent of the population, I would have to physically travel to a different city just to play it: One year after its release, Bandai Namco and Nintendo have only made it available in Tokyo and London.If you’ve been following the news lately, you know that the same thing is happening with an increasing number of hit franchises. The latest Star Wars, Terminator, and Dragon Quest games are “location-based” VR releases that can’t be played at home, and cost around $1 per minute to “experience” at specially equipped “VR zones.”
