Touring Karts, the PSVR takes Mario Kart, absent next month

The list of quality racing games on PlayStation 4 could be much better, but when you limit it to PlayStation VR titles, it becomes extremely short. Developer Ivanovich Games hopes to change all that, however, with Touring Karts – a kart racer set to hit the platform on December 12. It really does look like a great take on Mario Kart in virtual reality. So we'll let the trailer above do the talking.

Six impressive control schemes will allow you to customize the way you navigate the game's 22 tracks, all of which can be raced using 30 different Formula 1-inspired cars. A story mode features "500 original challenges" that can be completed on your own or in multiplayer, while an online offering contains three different game modes, daily cups, and the ability to play alongside your friends. A seemingly heavy amount of content.

It really does look like the real deal, so you'll be happy to hear that Touring Karts will launch for $19,99, but a 15% PS4 discount cuts that drop slightly for two weeks. The icing on the cake is that Touring Karts will soon get cross-play functionality on PC and home consoles, meaning you shouldn't have too much trouble entering an online lobby after it's released.
