Though the title says "Mario Kart," Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, and Blinky from the Pac-Man series join the veteran go-karting crew in a brand-new kart-racing extravaganza made especially for arcades. Mario Kart Arcade GP offers around 90 items—with a small percentage based on previous Namco games—and 24 total courses in six worlds.

Mario Kart Arcade GP uses a rewritable card for saving information, and the NamCam captures your face to use as a custom avatar in-game. Two twin cabinets can be linked together, allowing four players to race simultaneously.

Specifications (twin cabinet):
700 watts
1320 lbs.

The racers:

  • Mario
  • Luigi
  • Pac-Man
  • Peach
  • Yoshi
  • Blinky
  • Wario
  • DK
  • Bowser
  • Ms. Pac-Man
  • Toad

The ten racers are grouped by their different racing abilities. Mario, Luigi, and Pac-Man are your standard drivers with average acceleration, weight, and speed. The lightweight Peach, Yoshi, and Blinky have the fastest acceleration but the lowest top speed. Heavyweights Wario, DK, and Bowser are slow to accelerate, but their high top speed leaves everyone else in the dust. Finally, Ms. Pac-Man and Toad have great handling with above-average acceleration, low weight, and average speed.

Namco revealed Mario Kart Arcade GP at the AOU Amusement Expo 2005 in Japan.
