Think you’re a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe pro? Let the whole world know by showing off your shiny new gold parts! Gold parts are unlockable parts, and there are three in total. Each part has a different unlock method, and today we’re going over each part and how to get them in our Mario Kart 8 Deluxe guide on unlocking all the gold parts!
How to Unlock All Three Gold Parts
Gold Standard Kart
Unlock the Gold Standard Kart frame by winning every cup with at least one star on Mirror Mode. After you finish a cup, you’ll be rewarded one to three stars, depending on how many times you placed first. This is one of the more challenging unlocks to achieve, but as long as you’ve got a grasp of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe‘s advanced techniques like drifting for mini-turbos, you should be good to go. Remember, you don’t need to place first on all races, you just need to do it a few times and win the cup.
Unlock the Gold Glider by collecting a grand total of 5,000 coins. This is by far the most time-consuming challenge to complete! Any mode counts towards your coin total, so just keep playing the game, and you’ll unlock the Gold Glider eventually. For a quick trick on how to farm coins, Nintendo Life made a helpful video demonstrating an efficient method.
Unlock the Gold Tires by beating every single Staff Ghost in Time Trial mode on 150cc. This challenge is easily the most difficult challenge out of all three parts, as the Staff Ghosts are very tough! Finishing this challenge requires complete track memorization, so you’ll need to practice a lot. As expected, the Gold Tires are probably the last unlock for most players.
That’s how you get all three gold parts in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Have any tips for unlocking the parts? Let us know in the comments below!
