List of Mario Kart: Double Dash!! pre-release and unused content

From the Super Mario Wiki

This is a list of pre-release and unused content for the game Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Early iteration[edit]

The models of the characters are from Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Mario and Luigi are seen in this trailer of a very early build of the game, driving separately, each in a simple, blue kart. It was originally called Mario Kart for Nintendo GameCube, and it is likely that this early build of Mario Kart: Double Dash!! was overhauled for the final game, as it resembles nothing like it.

Early builds[edit]

Several screenshots released during the development of the actual Double Dash!! build shows different textures, tracks, speedometer HUD, and racer mugshots.

Time trial code[edit]

An example of the code

Pressing L Button R Button L Button R Button X Button Y Button X Button Y Button Z Button at the end of a trial mode race (where save ghost and replay are) will bring up a series of numbers and letters, a code that stores the race time, lap time, characters used, kart used and course I.D. This was used for a Japanese contest.[1]

Unused data[edit]

Some unused data has exists in a Double Dash!! demo from Interactive Multi-Game Demo Disc Version 13.

An icon and trophies for a Reverse Cup have been found, which possibly could mean that a cup where the racers drive the tracks backwards was planned.[2] In addition, early character icons have been found featuring Donkey Kong Jr. instead of Diddy Kong.[3]

Early Sherbet Land Course[edit]

Hidden in the European Demo Disc 10 demo is an early version of Sherbet Land. The name of the course is Dekoboko. Inside the objects folder includes a Wiggler Wagon, a Mario tree, an early version of Freezie, and a sign.
