A new Mario Kart arcade game is being developed
Namco Bandai just teamed up with Nintendo once again to make another Mario Kart Arcade game, Mario Kart GP DX. The glider and the propeller are back from Mario Kart 7, as well the camera to take a mug shot of you, along with a new mode for two player, Clone Battle.
The Arcade will be debut in the Japan Amusement Expo in 2 weeks, but the game will be released later this year. Are you excited for the next Mario Kart arcade game? And what are your thoughts on the Mario Kart arcade games?
I wonder if Q Bert will be a playable character.
I heard about that place! As a Connecticution (I think that's a word) I'm crazy jealous! Closest thing here is Dave and Buster's in New York and it's...underwhelming.
I really didn't enjoy the Mario Kart arcade games, they had a completely different feel to them. I wanted to LOVE them but just couldn't. Maybe this one will be different but my guess is it won't be.
To bad arcades barely exist anymore.
and europa will never see some of these arcade anyway only JP and if USA is lucky
I wish the GP games would come out to the Wii U.
Whoa, wait, I can play as the Taiko drum in a Mario Kart game?
SHUT UP AND TAKE ARCADE TOKENS
I never considered GP 2 to be one of the better Mario Karts, but I love some Mario Kart when I can get some...
And yes that means the first beer will be on me.
I hope they bring it to the west. If Ground Kontrol gets it here in Portland I am going and invite any G1s in the area to join me.
I'd enjoy it, just don't go to arcades any more. the local one kinda sucks (worked there for 2 years). Actually played the other mario kart arcade cabinets down in Disney. It was fun, but didn't spend a lot of time on it
there should evetnually be wii u ports of all MK arcade games, because they are alwasy much more enjoyable than the home versions. except maybe double dash because thats like a completely different game, but these arcade ones are so fun, wish they were home console ports
Why not a WiiU version?
I personally enjoyed the second one, so if this game ever comes to the states (and hopefully a lot easier to find, since I don't want to drive 2 hours just to play the game again), I'd love to spend a few quarters on it. I really hope they added the feature where you get a free race every time you get first place, because the second game cost a lot to play and to keep making progress. But what I would really like to see is if the game gets ported to the Wii U eventually; it would seem like a waste of potential (and another opportunity to get more money from Mario Kart fans) not to do so (you could even use the gamepad to take a picture of you just like in the arcade game for crying out loud!)
