Mario Kart 7 patch available in eShop

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mario Kart 7 has been patched. Head over to eShop to download the game update, which fixes the shortcut issues in Maka Wuhu, Wuhu Island Loop, and Bowser Castle 1 (I didn’t know about that last one). Note that the patch will not become mandatory for online play until May 16th, so we’ll have to wait until tomorrow for the new cheat-free environment to really take effect. Just think: starting Wednesday there’ll be no more online bozos picking Maka Wuhu over and over and over again just to prove they can cheat as well as any other cheater.

Nice, isn’t it? Maka Wuhu is one of the game’s best tracks; I can’t wait to see it raced properly again!

    Eh, it only affects the online racing, time trias and GP mode don’t seem to be affected at all by it. But it’s nice they’ve finally patched these glitches to stop so many people picking these courses online just to cheat. And it’s pretty smart of Nintendo to fix the Bowser Castle 1 glitch before it becomes the next big thing.

    I’m really excited for this but I didn’t know that two other maps needed patching up as well but finally the cheaters will be taken down.

    I installed the patch, now just to hope I can avoid getting communication errors for long enough to actually go online again.
