Well, there’s a surprise. Word just came from Nintendo via their 3DS messaging system that the company plans to update (read: PATCH) Mario Kart 7 to remove the infamous Wuhu Island cheat glitch. Call it a cheater’s winning method, or bad design, or a glitch, but it’s helped people win several races in an unorthodox “fall-off-the-cliff” fashion. Usually AGAINST me.
The patch arrives in Mid-Mary, showing that Nintendo does indeed plan on using the updated 3DS software to actually fix things. Welcome to 2006, Nintendo! It’s about time.
