Fourth entry in the Mario Kart Arcade GP series. Unlike the prior Mario Kart games, Mario Kart Arcade GP VR is played through use of a virtual reality headset and in first person. Similar to the prior arcade Mario Kart games, the game is controlled via a steering wheel and acceleration and brake pedals. In addition, items are thrown by making hand movements, which the game registers by an attachment to the player's wrist. For example, to throw a Green Shell, one must make a throwing motion with their open palm. Also, instead of using Item Boxes, the game uses red, yellow, and green balloons to store items. Gliders are also present, and are used similarly to Mario Kart Arcade GP DX.


Released on July 14, 2017 in Japan.

It was later exported to the United Kingdom on August 3, 2018, and to the United States on October 1, 2018.
