Real Life Mario Kart Hits The Streets Of Tokyo [VIDEO]

We all love racing games, and while realistic driving simulators such as Gran Turismo 5 and the recently released Forza Motorsport 4 offers hours and hours of entertainment, the kid in all of us can never turn down a fun afternoon of Mario Kart.

The guys over at Japanese car site Cliccar decided to bring Mario Kart to real life, outfitting themselves with their best Mario and Luigi costumes, firing up their street legal X-Karts and taking them down the streets of Tokyo.

The X-Kart weighs in at a scant 209-lbs with a limited top speed of 35-mph, but can be modified to go over 50-mph. But no one really cares how fast these things can zip around when costume-clad Mario and Luigi are behind the wheel. Even though cosplaying out on the streets of Tokyo is pretty normal, these Mario Bros. did a great job stirring up the crowd in Shibuya.
