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.

    I have a tip for Bowser Castle.When you are in the circlespin room(when you go on a platform and it spins around and around in circles) and you see the 1st opening,keep driving.When you see the 2ND opening,go through. This should get you to 1st Place or close. If you are in 8th Place this won’t work. Gotta stun!
