Mario Kart Arcade GP DX

The new arcade version of Mario Kart, called Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, born after the collaboration between Nintendo and Namco Bandai, is finally out in Japan. Unfortunately we don’t know if this special cabinet will ever see the light of the day outside the rising sun land, but hey…it features a drivable shooting tank! Here’s the brand new launch trailer.

As you can see from the trailer, a part from the already present in previous versions Pac-Man, this new arcade-only chapter will feature a bran new character from the Namco Bandai roaster, Don from Taiko Drum Master. Also, the game has a coop mode, used to combine two player’s kart in a powerful tank!

By the way, here’s how the cabinet looks like.

Namco Bandai is still thinking about a western release…let’s hope.
