Mario Kart 7 Finally Patched

While reluctant at first, Nintendo has finally issued their first patch to one of their retail releases. Mario Kart 7 received the update early this morning, fixing shortcut exploits in Maka Wuhu, Wuhu Loop, and Bowser Castle 1. While these updates only affect the online portion of the game, fans can give a sigh of relief as the Maka Wuhu glitch has ravaged the community since the release of the game last December.

To install the update, go to the eShop and find the update on the main menu. Download the update and your game is ready to go! The update will consume a total of 43 blocks. Be aware that players will be disabled from the online portion of the game if the update is not applied.

Please post on the correct post Green Magikoopa, also unless MarioWiki has their source we can’t use them as one.

Mariowiki said that Black Yoshi will be in Mario Tennis Open as well. Yet they haven’t post the news for pink & red yet, so all that’s left is White.

Hopefully they find a way to make DLC someday.

I never saw anyone use this glitch, and now I guess I never will.

It still works offline. The patch only affects online play.

No more goofing around on Maka Wuhu oh well :p
(I tended to get d/ced if I glitched it which is a pretty big incentive not to use it :p)

Do you like playing the same course and doing the same thing all the time while attempting to get ‘free VR’ that you never get because everyone knows about this? WALUIGI DOES NOT LIKE DOING THIS.

This update is to keep all people fair and eliminate shortcut exploits in the three online courses.
