Dragon Kart Mini Game Guide
What is Dragon Kart?
Dragon Kart is a racing mini-game that you can play to earn various rewards. It also serves as a nice break from the main story.
Using a customizable race kart, you must race across various challenging courses around the different cities to collect rings that can be exchanged for special rewards. Each race consists of 3 laps where racers must battle to get 1st place.
Aside from rings, item boxes can be found scattered throughout the courses. Picking them up grants you various power-ups and weapons to use to your advantage during the race.
Your go-kart has an endurance meter displayed at the bottom of the screen. Crashing into other racers or getting hit by weapons will deplete your kart’s endurance which can be restored by picking up rings found in each course. Note that you will come to a full halt and will not be able to move for a while if your kart’s endurance reaches zero.
How to Access Dragon Kart
Dragon Kart can be accessed by talking to Fujisawa north of Hamakita Park in Ijincho during Chapter 4: Dragon of Yokohama.

Dragon Kart Tips
Use start dash.
You can activate a boost at the start of the race by pressing and holding down the R2 button as the timer starts to count down. If done correctly, you should shoot straight out and far ahead of the other racers to have an early advantage during the race.
Use the dash tiles
Dash tiles found on various points of the course also grant you a temporary speed boost to pull away further from the rest of the drivers or use it to gain on those ahead of you. Note that enemy drivers will almost always use dash tiles so failing to use them allows your opponents to widen their advantage or overtake you.
Drift around corners
Pressing the × button allows you to drift smoothly around corners, preventing you from losing too much speed until the road runs straight again. Try to attack corners from the outside going in as well for a more solid entry.
