Mario5Arrow R Ridge Racer

In this remake of Ridge Racer 64 some of the special unlockable cars have been altered to feature images of Mario characters, in detail Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Shy Guy and Donkey Kong.

Also the "Mushroom Kingdom II" music track from Super Mario Bros. II have been included as an unlockable track.


Ridge Racer DS was licensed by Nintendo to be released on the Nintendo DS, so Namco was able to include references to the Mario series.
