Mario Kart 7 patches up some glitches today photo



An update is now live for Mario Kart 7, and you can grab it through your eShop update menu, or by scanning this QR code that Nintendo Life has generously produced for the internet at large.

All the update does is essentially fix a few exploits found in the game, for instance the Wuhu Island/Mountain Loop and Bowser's Castle 1 shortcuts. A number of people around the web are hilariously reporting that potential cheaters are already attempting to load up Wuhu, and are miserably failing when trying to use the old shortcuts.

Thank goodness for Nintendo's willingness to embrace patches! Before the DSi, people would have been left in the wind. Hundreds of people on various Mario Kart community message boards were refusing to play online with these glitches intact, so chalk up a definite win for Nintendo.
