Mario Kart 7 has been given an update. Nintendo Europe announced today that they launched an update for the game that “kills off several shortcut exploits for the 3DS racing game”. The reason for the update is due to the fact that Nintendo deemed the use of short cuts unfair on particular courses. Those courses are:
Wuhu Island Loop
Wuhu Mountain Loop
& GBA Bowser Castle 1
Gamers who choose not to install the update will still be allowed to play in both single-player & multi-player mode but will not however be allowed to play online. As of this time there is confirmation of when the update will launch in North America.
