    You're better off updating to 4.1.0, in which case just buy and update with Mario Kart 8, but no, A) you'd have to be in Wii U mode to do any kind of updating and B) you'd probably have to use a USB/hard drive if you were able to do it and the Wii U formats it with an unknown format and encrypts it, so no, for now all we have is disc updates. Dunno what SM3DW has though.

    Yes, it's been confirmed by multiple users that it has 4.1.0. And if you wanted a vague idea of what has 4.0 or higher then just look at the list of games that came out after 30 September 2013, which is when 4.0 came out :P process of elimination.

    Yes, the bug in the web browser still exists so it's still safe.
