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.

    To do a power slide hold down the R button and rock the D-pad left and right! The sparks will turn orange (not blue)!!!

  14. Luga,

    you’re talkin’ ’bout Lvl 7 missions

  15. how do u get more people

  16. For Gamekid, if you like racing games and unlockables, yes.

  17. The GBA game Samurai Jack starts off in a training dojo. One of the rooms has two fountains and a dividing wall. The dojo guy in that room says you have to freeze them to get by, but how do you do that!?!

  18. 13 staff ghosts remaining.

    Mario Kart Wii should have comment board

    I beat the game and I got R.O.B. I also have every kart.

  20. You Mean R.O.B?

  21. To get the robot you have to beat 150cc mirror Nitro. You unlock all the karts by beating 150cc miorror Retro.

  22. Piemaster: Beat 150 cc Mirror retro cup to be able to choose any kart (I beat the whole game in 5 days! it is awsome!)
