MarioKart DS

How do you unlock characters? Thanks for your help!

Games Guru: You unlock characters by winning the gold in different tournaments with different engine classes. You unlock Princess Daisy, for instance, by winning the Retro Cup with a 50cc. Win it with the 100cc kart, and you

unlock Waluigi. You unlock Dry Bones by winning the Nitro Grand Prix in 50cc.

Do you have any tips for this game?

Games Guru: Did you see the movie “Cars?” Remember when Doc was trying to teach Lightning McQueen how to drift around corners? Well, that lesson is ultra-valuable in MarioKart. If you hold the Right shoulder button down as you make turns, your car will go into a speed-saving slide around the turn.This is the key to fast, fast race times.

    Game Guru forgot Turbo Drifting. That is why drifting is important. Also, use drifting on corners or hard turns, not small turns. Drifting on a small turn will send you drifting off the track, unless you are good enough.

    Hey Piemaster, Luigi’s vacum-cleaner kart is called the Porltgust 4000. I don’t know what you mean by “Dry Bone’s cool kart” but maybe I can help you out. One is called the Banniser, the other is called the Dry Bomber.

    while drifting, u kan press the left and right arrows alternating; really fast, and when u let go, then u will get an extra burst of speed. u can do this continiously, and it is kalled snaking. the best cart to use for this technique is the dry bomber.
