Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 is more or less its predecessor but with extra content.

Unused Graphics

Early Title Screen

MKAGP2 tpl2 tes title BG01.png

tpl2_tes_title_BG01.tpl is an early version of the title screen, using art assets from the previous game.

Concept Art

Pieces of concept art for Waluigi Stadium and Yoshi Park can be found.

Test Images

There are numerous images meant for testing the UI system, two of which contain photos of an unknown developer testing the camera function.

In addition, this game carried over three JPG test images from the previous game: camtest00.jpg, camtest01.jpg and camtest02.jpg.

Unused Models

LOD Models

The unused LOD models from the previous game are still intact, but Waluigi and Mametchi, who were added in this game, just use duplicates of Mario.

Build Dates

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Try to find context for some of these, what each one means is unclear. There are other build dates for the Dolphin SDK from 2004, should those be documented?
