Nintendo has “no plans” to fix Maka Wuhu track bypass in Mario Kart 7

Wednesday, 18th January 2012 20:59 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Nintendo has said it doesn’t plan on releasing a patch to fix a glitch allowing users to bypass part of the Maka Wuhu track with an unintended shortcut in Mario Kart 7.

According to a statement given to StickTwiddlers, Nintendo is “aware” part of the track can be navigated in a way which “allows a large part of the course to be bypassed,” but there are “no plans to update the game to remove this shortcut.”

“Doing so would create an unfair advantage for the users of the original release of the game,” said Nintendo representative Buddy Roemer, adding that the request for a fix has “been added” to the firm’s records.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Reminds me of the dirty wall jump after the start line on Wario’s Stadium on Mario Kart 64. If you pulled that bump jump off you were over half a lap ahead of your mates. It sure did piss a few people off in 4-player. Oh the glory days.

    It didn’t take long, but here is a petition to not only fix the Wuhu glitch, but other issues. Sign the petition for a better Mario Kart 7
