    From IGN:

    "Namco Bandai has announced an updated version of its Mario Kart arcade racer, Mario Kart Arcade GP. Titled Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, the game promises new characters, including Waruigi and Tamagotchi, new items and new courses.

    Four player races should be more fun than ever with some of the new features. The game now has voice commentary narrating the happenings of races. New frames have also been added to the Namcam system, which allows players to create an avatar by taking a picture using the game's built in camera."

    Still havent seen the first in any arcades over here, but then in Southend the newest game is probably House of the Dead 4. Anyone know if the first was any good?? If so I hope it goes to Wii soon.

    He's the Chinese version.

    I like seeing mistakes on IGN.

    I played the first one in my local arcade once and I was surprised to see it there so I decided to have a go on it quick because the arcades keeps replacing the machines with something newer. Anyways, it was quite a good game but the worst part is that you have to keep putting in more money when you complete ONE track in a cup match. Would be nice to see this game as part of a bonus sometime in the future.

    The first one was SO expensive. Which is why I only played it once. I really hope they bundle it in with Mario Kart Wii or something.

    So you must laugh everytime that Casamassina dork speaks in his trademark "Nintendo fanboy that tells it how it is, whenever he doesn't get free stuff [​IMG] "

    I have played the first one and it is quite fun. But as others have stated, it was very expensive since you had to keep paying each round.

    The first one stunk. I've played it like 6 times at Muvico (movie theater). Pac man and Ms Pac Man are in it, and theres like retarded items like square tires and pans. No shells, but coins that have an effect similar to bananas in Diddy Kong Racing. (That would be something nice to see. A sequel to DKR)

    I've only seen and played the first one in an arcade for a giant amusement park in California. It was fun, but it ate a lot of money so I didn't play for more than one cup. [​IMG]
