Mario Kart 7 Update Hits 3DS eShop, Removes Unfair Exploits


Nintendo has finally released the highly anticipated patch for Mario Kart 7. You’ll be happy to know that the Wuhu Mountain Loop shortcut that plagued online multiplayer is now a thing of the past. The update also fixes similar issues found in GBA Bowser Castle 1 and Wuhu Island Loop.

The Mario Kart 7 update data can be found in the 3DS eShop. As long as you have the latest firmware you shouldn’t have any issues. If you don’t download the patch you won’t be able to play online. If you need full instructions, you can head over to the official Nintendo website for more details.

    Do they actually offer it on the store? Wished Sony did that.

      Why? Surely its much less hassle just to download the patch next time you pop the disc in, isn’t it?

      (which isn’t even an issue istelf if you are a plusser)

        I have no clue if all games on the 3DS will be patched in the same way or if this is just something special for Mario Kart 7. I guess we’ll know soon enough. I would assume games built around the idea of patches wouldn’t need an eShop file.

      i’m guessing because some people don’t want to download the patch? although if you press O fast enough on the ps3 then it won’t download anyway.

      Yeah but you could just leave it to download and play a game that doesn’t connect to the PSN like White Knight Chronciles or some random single player thing. Actually the store wouldn’t be good… maybe just to background downloading.

    I’m suprised they bothered doing this seeing as they had already said they weren’t going to patch anything. Good to see Ninty is looking after it’s fans though

    Cool. I’ve just bought my son a 3DS with, predictably, Mario Kart 7 so he’ll be delighted to play online without cheaters.
