3 Questions and Answers

Unlockable Characters


Un-lockable Upgrades

On top of the character unlocks that we have listed above, there are 25 more karts and accessories to unlock in the game. The method for unlocking these is not so straightforward, nor is it linear, as everyone unlocks the items in a different order.

How to Unlock Upgrades

Mario Kart 7 re-introduces coins into the tracks, and collecting these coins is key to getting the upgrades. You can be holding a maximum of 10 coins at the end of any race, but keep in mind that getting hit by weapons or obstacles that cause you to crash will make you lose coins. The strategy here is to collect every coin possible during the race. The upgrades are then unlocked in a random order when you reach milestones in total coins collected.


Reach any of these milestones to get a new item.



These are the available items, un-lockable by milestones. The order in which you receive them is random - so no one item corresponds directly to a coin milestone.
