- Go through at least once just to bloom all the cursed trees. You don't need them distracting you from your running. - Equip Solar Flare! It acts as a fire source which allows you to melt any icicles or snowballs that get in your way. Drawing fireburst (infinity symbol) works just as well. - Use the square button for a quick dash! You need to move as fast as possible and by using dash you won't waste time building up speed. - Learn the route beforehand! Kai takes the long way around everything during the race. By learning where the shortcuts are you can easily stay ahead of her. - When you reach the frozen lake, rather than running straight through it as Kai does, head off to the left or right. There's no ice on the sides so you'll maintain your speed and traction better, allowing you to keep the lead. - The snowballs will come at you in waves of three, from the left, right and left. Keep this in mind so you can quickly avoid them! - Do not waste time opening chests or collecting time extensions! Treasure can wait, and there's more than enough time to reach the finish line. - Keep calm and maintain your cool! It may take a few tries, so don't let it get to you. Take a break if needed, then give it another try. It may seem impossible, but it's not. Show Kai who's the fastest in all of Nippon!
Naw it's ok... there are a lot of FAQs for this game and I have a hard time remembering which is which in my head (e.g. 'is that the sarcastically written one or the one that sounds like a fifth grader wrote it?'). Short of bookmarking every.single.faq, sometimes a little C&P is what I need. ------------------- PON PON PATA PON
