Snowboard Kids Plus, is a snowboarding video game, the second game in the Snowboard Kids series; it's the only one made for the PlayStation console as well as the only one not released outside of Japan. The game is basically a revamped version of the original Snowboard Kids for the Nintendo 64, with the addition of features such as new characters, cut scenes, and more options for customization.

The game alludes to taking place only a few days after the events of the first game, with Linda having been the victor.

Recurring CharactersEdit

Slash KameiEdit

Age 10, Male

Energetic Slash has been known to be a source of trouble for the townsfolk. He's extremely competitive, leading to him being constantly at odds with people like Linda. Slash also enjoys any ride with a lot of speed (like minibikes in the warmer months), and considers himself to be the fastest snowboarder in town.

Slash's Stats:

  • Speed: 2
  • Corner: 2
  • Trick: 2

Nancy NeilEdit

Age 10, Female

Nancy could be seen as voice of reason in the group, though sometimes they don't bother to listen. Nevertheless, she remains as a kindly girl who is well-liked by kids of all ages because of how well she takes care of others. Many say that her tricks are the best in town, but Nancy is too humble to admit it herself. As the slowest character, Nancy's favorite item slows down opponents. If you use up to three ghosts, the victim's speed slows down to a crawl, stumbling that person down to last place.

Nancy's Stats:

  • Speed: 1
  • Corner: 3
  • Trick: 3

Jam KuehnemundEdit

Age 10, Male

He's a fun-loving kid who follows the New York Rap Scene. Jam is smarter than he lets on, but still tends to get carried away when it comes to showing off. When it comes to snowboarding, he calls himself the master trickster, despite the public belief that Nancy is better. For this reason, they share a friendly rivalry. Jam's favorite item, Rock, can be placed anywhere. If you placed a rock at the lift while in first place, the person in second will trip over the rock. Rocks are best placed where players may pass.

Jam's Stats:

  • Speed: 1½
  • Corner: 2½
  • Trick: 2½

Linda MaltinieEdit

Age 11, Female

Linda is the energetic and spoiled daughter of the Maltinie Foundation's owner. She first visited Snow Town when she was seven for medical treatment, but chose to stay there with her servant after recovery. She will force Nicole to eat peanuts with her eyes if she loses the tournament, despite physical impossibilities. Linda's sibling, Brad is used at SBK: Snowboard Kids, known in Japan as Snowboard Kids Party. She and Nicole each like the same item and weapon due to their stats being the same.

Linda's Stats:

  • Speed: 2½
  • Corner: 1½
  • Trick: 1½

Tommy ParsyEdit

Age 10, Male

Tommy is a gentle boy with a fondness for hamburgers. Because of his quiet nature, it's hard to tell what's on his mind. Villagers mistake him to be mischievous because he's been Slash's friend since childhood, but in truth Slash just pulls him around. Tommy is one who doesn't care much for competition.

Tommy's Stats:

  • Speed: 3
  • Corner: 1
  • Trick: 1

ShinobinEdit

Age Unknown, Male

Everything about this skilled ninja is a mystery, but he is so feared that no one has ever dared to ask him. Shinobin has the capability of getting his point across without saying a word. It is thought that fellow ninja Kaede is his sibling, but it is only a rumor. He is unlocked once the game is finished with Kaede. Shinobin races at Ninja Land in Snowboard Kids and is seen unless you can finish first at some of the courses, otherwise his favorite item will be the Rat Face, one of Palema's favorite two items.

Shinobin's Stats:

  • Speed: 2½
  • Corner: 2½
  • Trick: 2½

Shinobin cannot use the regular or Special boards. He has his own set.

New CharactersEdit

Nicole CouchEdit

Age 10, Female

Nicole is the daughter of the Couch Company's founder who goes to a school in a nearby town. She despises Linda ever since she called her "Upstart Girl", but yet she's nice to Nancy, Slash, Jam, Shinobin and Tommy. Nicole hosts this new competition to spite Linda, and even dares the Maltinie girl to snort spaghetti through her nose if she loses. Nicole's stats matches that of Linda, 11, and Nicole likes the same item and weapon Linda likes. (item, pans; weapon, paracthute)

Nicole's Stats:

  • Speed: 2½
  • Corner: 1½
  • Trick: 1½

Pamela RasteriEdit

Age 10, Female

Pink-haired Pamela is a popular child actress, and is rarely seen because of her busy schedule. Girls at school adore her only because of her status, but Pamela remains unaware. She joins the tournament not for the money, but to witness Nicole and Linda's ridiculous dares. Like Nancy, Pamela has good handling.

Pamela's Stats:

  • Speed: 2
  • Corner: 3
  • Trick: 1½

Ruby GreenEdit

Age 10, Male

Ruby is the narcissistic muscular kid who refers to himself as "Nice Guy." Because of his appearance, people think that he's a chaperone when he's seen with the kids (much to his chagrin). While Ruby doesn't have much interest in snowboarding, he competes only to win the 100,000G prize money for himself. His speed and turn stat matches that of Tommy.

Ruby's Stats:

  • Speed: 3
  • Corner: 1
  • Trick: 1½

KaedeEdit

Age Unknown, Female

The kunoichi trainee Kaede seemingly appears out of nowhere. Though she shares the same snowboarding prowess as Shinobin, Kaede lacks his maturity and discipline. Her reasons for entering the tournament are unknown. Kaede appears as a playable character the first time the game is completed. Like her sibling Shinobin, Kaede has the same stats.

Kaede's Stats:

  • Speed: 2½
  • Corner: 2½
  • Trick: 2½

Like Shinobin, Kaede cannot use the regular or Special boards. She uses the same gear as he does.

New FeaturesEdit

Auto-PilotEdit

When crossing the finish line, the computer will automatically steer your character towards the lift-in. This option can be disabled.

New Board DesignsEdit

Along with the standard 14 paint jobs that were in the first game, Snowboard Kids Plus adds two more, pictured at right.

Bleach BoothEdit

Unlike other games in the series, Snowboard Kids Plus gives you the shop option to dye each characters' hair one of eight different colors for 500G. While most options are solid colors, some actually come in patterns for certain characters (such as adding yellow streaks to Slash's black hair).

Wear BoothEdit

Along with the Bleach Booth, the Wear Booth adds more opportunity to customize your characters (in this case with new outfits). There are five outfits in all for each of the ten snowboarders; the default counts as the first option, and the next three are readily available for purchase at the shop. The final alternate costume is sold after the other four have been acquired.

Event ViewerEdit

Probably the biggest difference between the original game and Plus is the addition of cut scenes. While nearly all story scenes in the game consist of still pictures with voice overs, the introduction that plays when you first load the game is fully animated. You get a scene when you first start a new game, and whenever you complete the game with one of the characters. The first time you finish the game, you will be able to replay the credits as well. The Event Viewer is within the game's Option menu.
