Nintendo Fixes ‘Mario Kart 7′ Cheat

Nintendo

When you’re playing the 3DS game Mario Kart 7 online, and a bunch of people vote for Wuhu Mountain Loop, you feel like the victims in ‘A Clockwork Orange’ when the Droogs start to surround them in a back alley. The track is plagued with an exploit that lets players jump off a cliff and skip half the course, screwing over anyone who plays fair.

Nintendo, which patches games about as often as the Cubs win the World Series, is finally sticking its neck out of its red shell and addressing the problem. Nintendo Europe bigwig Satoru Shibata said the company will pump out an update sometime in the middle of May.

It stands to reason that the same update will go out worldwide at the same time, because Mario Kart 7 matches are global. If Nintendo patches up the game only in Europe, it would put those dudes at a steep disadvantage. Meaning we kind of want Nintendo to only patch the game in Europe, just for comedy’s sake.
