Did you know Mario Kart DS plays a different start-up sound depending on the system you're using?

A neat Easter egg

Here's a little piece of Nintendo trivia for you. If you played Mario Kart DS on a traditional DS, you would hear Mario shout "Yahoo!" when you loaded the game up. If you played it on DS Lite, DSi, 3DS, or Wii U, you'll instead hear Mario say "Here we go!". There doesn't seem to be an explanation as to why this change was made, but you can see the proof in the video above.


Not only that there's a third variant on the Japanese version.

Mario still says "Here We Go!" but, the sound of the kart sounds more like if it zoomed by from your position. It's the sound used on the Mario Kart DS Japanese website.
