Namco Bandai’s VR ZONE amusement center in Shinjuku doesn’t just have a Neon Genesis game. It also has virtual reality Mario Kart. And Dragon Ball Z.

If you’re wondering how/why this is happening, remember that Namco Bandai has released a few arcade versions of Mario Kart, the latest of which—Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, which this appears to be—came out in 2013, and is based on Mario Kart 7.

VR Zone opens next month, and will also have virtual reality games based on Dragon Ball Z, fishing and pedal-powered flight.
