Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 (マリオカート アーケードグランプリ 2) is the second arcade-only iteration of Nintendo's Mario Kart series, developed by Namco for the Triforce arcade board. The game features a wide selection of characters from the Mario and Namco franchises, with gameplay similar to Mario Kart: Double Dash‼.
As an arcade game, after a track is completed credits must be inserted to continue playing, even if the player won the race. Additional tracks and characters can be unlocked through play, with player data saved on a magnetic card (sold separately). Each player can customize his profile, using the arcade cabinet's built in camera to take photograph of the player's face, which can be customized then displayed above the player's character during multiplayer races. On top of adding new tracks and characters to Mario Kart Arcade GP's catalog, GP2 adds color commentary that plays throughout races.
The Triforce branch is required to run this game, as well as a series of settings.
- The AM-Baseboard needs to be set to both SP1 and Port1 in Config ---> GameCube.
