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.

    course its good when you play with your frieends my next door nieghbour has the game(probably not as good as you guys)i always trie to brown shell my brother so bad me and him always keep on gettin 1st and 2nd when we play together.

  6. R.O.B. can go pretty fast. I think the kart i use is called BLS (?), and i can get 1:24 on the Figure 8 track in Time Trials. To snake, you powerslide back and forth using turbos. It helps out your time more than anything else (especially on straightaways). Though it might take some practice…
