This is a sub-page of Proto:Mario Kart: Double Dash!!/Multi-Game Demo Disc Demo.

Course Previews

Since you can only select Mario Circuit, there are some course previews that are different from the demo, plus some unused ones. Peach Beach, Mushroom Bridge, Sherbet Land and Mushroom City all have the same images.

Interestingly, many of those images depict earlier designs for the courses.

E3 Leftovers

To do:
Find a way to load these menus in-game.

There's a lot of leftover E3 graphics hidden in SceneData\English.


The E3 title screen in the trailer.

MKDD E3Title1.png MKDD E3Title2.png MKDD E3Title3.png

MKDD E3Title4.png

The E3 title screen which uses the early logo. Note that Peach and Daisy's kart has been slightly moved between the trailer and these files.

It's possible to restore the E3 title screen by modifying the game's executable and the blo files to run it. The code that would've handled the E3 title screen seems to be gone, as there are no references to a e3title.arc in the game's executable. Because of that this is mostly a visual restoration.


The screen as seen from the E3 booth.

MKDD E3GameOver1.png MKDD E3GameOver2.png

The E3 game over screen.


The E3 LAN Mode screen.

MKDD co name luigi.png

The E3 Luigi's Circuit logo can be found at MRAM.arc/race2d.arc. None of the other E3 logos are here though, except the Peach Beach logo.


MKDD e tyoki.png MKDD ending message.png MKDD m fukidasi pice.png
Hidden ending message graphics. The ending screen has "感動のえんでぃんぐ" (exciting ending) written on it, while the man is saying "ピース" (peace) and making the "peace" gesture.


Demo Final Notes
MKDD Demo cuppictreverse2.png MKDD Final cuppictreverse2.png The purple circle was later changed to blue.

Unused Labels

MKDD early title name.png MKDD time a.png MKDD re rap.png MKDD re total.png MKDD re waku.png MKDD re waku rap.png

Placeholders for a time attack screen. The first graphic says "名前を入力してね" (please enter your name), while the second graphic says "タイムアタック" (time attack). Also note the misspelling in "best lap time" button, possibly due to L and R not being distinguished in Japanese.

Early Character Icons

MKDD Unused Character Icons.png

Some early character icons, which show that Donkey Kong Jr. was originally planned to be included in the game. Diddy Kong's filename uses "dk_jr" as a replacement.

Unused Initials

MKDD Unused Font.png

An early initials font.



Demo Final JPN Final US
MKDD cupwithpict mirror early.png MKDD cupwithpict mirror japan.png MKDD cupwithpict mirror final.png

The icon for mirror mode also seemed to go through a drastic change.

Special Cup

Demo Final JPN Final US
MKDD specialcup early.png MKDD specialcup japan.png MKDD specialcup final.png

The icon for special cup is missing its mouth.

All Cup Tour

Demo Final JPN Final US
MKDD allcuptour early.png MKDD allcuptour japan.png MKDD allcuptour final.png

Same with the special cup, the all cup tour have some different icons. The early icon has the cup models facing different directions, while the final icon has all four icons facing the camera.

Change Character

MKDD mozi change character.png

The text "Change Characters" was simply "Change Character" in the demo, possibly leftover from before they added two characters in one kart.

Y Maze

MKDD mozi map6.png

Oddly Luigi's Mansion is refered to as "Y Maze" in SceneData/English/LANPlay.arc.
