Mario Kart has a particularly strong hold on gaming fans, so much so that real world imitations are not uncommon. The French did it, so it only stands to reason that the Japanese would feel compelled to do it even better.

A new video of real world Mario Kart racing has surfaced in the country that gave birth to the original video game. Taking to the streets of Shibuya, the two drivers ride X-Kart vehicles throughout the city streets shocking and amusing onlookers familiar with the Nintendo game first released back in 1992.
