    Nintendo has stealthily uploaded a new patch for Mario Kart 7. Notable fixes are the Wuhu Mountain Loop, Wuhu Island Loop, Bowser Castle exploits and some other tweaks to the game.

    I'm pretty sure you have to update in order to play online again.

    Okay, so, I just tried doing the glitch in Time Trials, and it still works if you land in the water, which isn't hard to do at all...

    This is a joke, right? Someone please tell me that this is a joke...

    EDIT: According to some other people, the patch only affects the course online, which doesn't really make much sense...

    From the E-shop?

    I thought it was a force updates, i.e you can't play online races if you don't update.

    So the patch is saved on the SD card, if you don't have it inserted then you can't play online. :/

    Yeah, it's only online. If they were to patch offline mode like Time Trial, then they'd have to mess with the saved results on each 3DS.


    Did a quick test. The patch itself is loaded during game boot. Not inserted, the Online mode won't show v1.1. Have to reload the game with the SD card inserted to have the patch activated.

    Wow, this must be some kind of first for any Nintendo handheld? An actual bugfix to prevent cheating, good work!

    Awesome news! Doesnt really matter to me that its not for offline, this game has barely anything to do offline anyway (unlike the awesome DS one)

    I thought 3DS carts had the ability to apply patches to them.

    this is applying it to the cart just only when you load the cart does it get applied
