Mario Kart 7 track glitch won't be fixed any time soon

Mario Kart 7 has been met with wide critical acclaim from critics and gamers alike. While the handheld blockbuster offers a fantastic variety of tracks, kart customization options and competitive online play, it's hampered by a track glitch that often ruins online matches.

The track in question -- Make Wuhu (Wuhu Mountain Loop in Aus) -- is plagued by an issue that allows players to drive off the track and respawn further up the track near a checkpoint, skipping over a vast distance. This means that players can essentially simultaneously transport from one end of the track to the other.

Nintendo has sent an email out regarding the glitch, saying:

‘Thanks for your patience in waiting for a response during this busy time of year. We are aware that it is possible to navigate a certain part of the track in Wuhu Island in a way that allows a large part of the course to be bypassed. There are no plans to update the game to remove this shortcut as doing so would create an unfair advantage for the users of the original release of the game. Rest assured your comments have been added to our records for Mario Kart 7. Sincerely, Buddy Roemer Nintendo of America Inc.’

This email would suggest that a game update is not possible, seeing as though Roemer makes mention of a disadvantage to early buyers of the game. This means Nintendo would only be able to change the code in new versions of the games, which begs the question: why can't 3DS games be updated via software downloads? The handheld can of course update games via upgrades and DLC, just as the Wii could, but Nintendo doesn't seem to have truly realised, or acknowledged, the benefit of such a feature.

In NA it's Maka Wuhu, so it's wrong either way :P
Yeah, but we're in Aus and here it's called Wuhu Mountain Loop. :P
so thats why i people keep going off the edge when i am playing mario cup [Rage]. i hate that course anyways so i don't care.
As soon as i see that track online i assume i wont come in the first three. I just make it my goal not to come last.
Such a shame because its a really fun track.
this is why downloadable updates are a good thing nintendo!!
When ever this track comes up during online worldwide I do the glitch as well. 7 out 8 players will do it so you might as well join them. [Shifty]
It's sad because this was one of my favourite tracks. I love any of the tracks that don't have laps, but instead have sections. It's a lot funner driving a full course once instead of driving a smaller one three times, in my opinion. :)
-_- -_- -_- :O [Shifty] [Facepalm] [Facepalm] ;O :'@
iDontcare y
you know they're talking about not releasing another cart version with it fixed not a patch
Ah, that's why all those cheaters chose that track. Grrr! [Rage]
The reason DLC won't work is for it to work, the game would have to check the SD card; apparently, the game doesn't do that. Skyward Sword's glitch was fixed because the save file was on the SD card, not the CD (unlike cartridges, where the game is saved on the cartridge itself). [monkey]

Ninja Edit!
when we play MK7 on the MMGN community i hope we get WML. =) [Shifty]
