The first 3DS game patch is now available on the eShop.
System owners can download a Mario Kart 7 update from the store which corrects glitches in the game. The patch is labeled “Mario Kart 7 Update Ver. 1.1″.
Many players had been taking advantage of exploits to gain the upper hand online. In Maka Wuhu, for instance, nearly half the course could be skipped by executing a certain move.
All Mario Kart 7 users must download the update before they can access the title’s online multiplayer features. Without the patch, players will be prompted to visit the eShop for the upgrade.
