Bandai Namco has launched its second Mario Kart VR installation within the city of London. Last weekend saw the company bring its virtual reality racer to Funscape County Hall on the South bank.
Preparing itself for high demand, the venue has launched an advance booking system with players looking to skip the queues able to book their Mario Kart VR experience up to one week ahead through an online portal.
Matt Bradley, VR Project Manager for BNAE, said: “This has been a particularly special project for us to have the opportunity to work alongside our sister company Namco UK.
“With this as our second landmark Mario Kart VR location within London at NUK’s flagship store, it demonstrates the infallible interest that the UK has for this world-class experience. The usual set-up has had a total overhaul inspired by BNAM’s latest incarnation Mazaria – their brand-new amusement facility in Toshima City dedicated to VR, anime and games.”
Trevor Sutton, leisure equipment controller for NUK, said: “We are incredibly excited to be bringing Mario Kart VR to our iconic location within County Hall on the South Bank. Mario Kart is an extremely popular IP which we are proud to be showcasing within this unique venue where visitors can expect a first-class service from our team at Namco Funscape.”
