Nintendo States They Have No Plans To Fix Mario Kart 7′s Maka Wuhu Glitch

Nintendo of America representative Buddy Roemer has told Youtube user Super Shadow Hero E3 that Nintendo has no plans to patch the popular glitch on Mario Kart 7′s Maka Wuhu. Roemer said that Nintendo were aware of the glitch but there are no plans to actually update the game to remove the glitch.

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

      1. i used it on mirror mode because i dont want to end up at second place or lower and not get a silver, bronze, or no trophy.

    1. ‘No plans’…sounds familiar…I think I’ll go back to playing those 10 Ambassador program gba games. No plans to release them to the public,that’s a really specific statement. (hint)

    1. wuhu mountain loop, just before u enter the cave, there is a hole u can fall into, if u do it right, u can be brought back onto the course miles ahead

  1. Back in the N64 days, if you found a shortcut like this on Yoshi’s Valley or Rainbow Road, it was the greatest thing ever, and even your friends found it hilarious. Now that online exists and it is possible for companies to fix these little glitches, everyone just hates people using them…

    1. It’s not only about people who are using this glitch. I mean… if everybody know that it exists, then everyone should be able to use it and everything is fine again. Finaly, it becomes like the regular way to do the race.

      But think about two things.

      First, those who don’t know the glitch can’t finish the race, because of the 30 sec. time limit, starting when the first player cross the line.
      Secondly, I don’t mind using the glitch once or twice when I’m playing MK7. But when 6 people over 8 can’t stop choosing Maka Wuhu (because “Oooh Myyy Gooood I’m a freakin’ genius and I know a GLITCH :-o. I’m sooooo gonna f*** everyone !” ) and I have to run it over 9000 times in an hour, that’s just boring.

      I apologize for my english, it’s not my native langage.

      1. I totally agree. I only use it against computers because I can finally outrun those stupid blue shells (I’ve been hit with a blue shell in EVERY race except Maka Wuhu when I’m against computers) About your English, you are actually a lot better in “grammar” (yes, retards who like to point out somebody else’s spelling mistakes but fail because you spell it like “grammer”) than most people in this site.

      2. Am one of those ppl that choses maka wuhu and I also use tons of cheat codes to win first place agaisnt noobs. awww u gunna rage quit oh well hey am an Asshole nice to meet you. btw i love destroying nintendo online gaming community and leaving it in absolute shit so no one can enjoy nintendo games.

        1. So, in other words, you buy Nintendo products to help Nintendo and to enjoy their games with other people online? That’s how I see your reply. BTW, There’s no cheat codes in MK7, only glitches dim-witted fool.

      3. Tell me about it. Every time someone chooses Maka Wuhu, I know that 6 out of 8 drivers will attempt to take that shortcut and that’s why I take it too if I want any chance of crossing the finish line :P It’s an annoying glitch sometimes, yes, but it is also kind of cool in an old-school way.

  2. Wait, somebody please explain how, as he says, “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”?

    1. simple, those who update the game won’t be able to perform the glitch anymore, but those who don’t will still able to cheat!

        1. Like everyone else lol. That’s why it’s mandatory for online games on EVERY other platform, so that there is no unfair advantage.

        2. well if they do it like the eshop that you have to update to access, maybe it’ll work but don’t know much about this stuff. so can’t tell.

    2. Because the game is hardcoded into the cartridge. It was not designed to be updated. So if they updated the game everyone who bought the updated version would not be able to use the glitch. However, everyone who had the game before the update could. Therefore, a huge advantage for early buyers and a big secondary market for used copies for people who are petty enough to care about this exploit, online or not.

      1. Yes the game is read only in the card but that doesn’t mean there can’t be update downloaded through the internet as a patch. Xbox or PS3 discs are read only but they get patches installed to the system.

        If Nintendo made it so it isn’t possible for developers to release downloadable patches for games then they are stupid, and I certainly know I wouldn’t develop for them.

    3. It gives an unfair advantage because people who played Star Cup while the glitch still existed could get 3 stars a lot easier than someone trying to do it after it’s patched.

    1. It’s mainly because they use cartridges to store data rather than hdd. Updates could be stored on the SD-card, but not everyone has got any room left for it, thus leaving some players without updates.

    1. well, the reason i want this glitch fix is because 6/8 players chooses maka wuhu EVERY TIME, and we race the same track over and over again. and it doesn’t make much difference if i join another race is the same everywhere! there are so many great tracks in the game u_u but playing against Japanese people is different because they don’t choose maka wuhu, VERY RARELY.

    2. People like you are the ones who don’t care about other people’s fun and annoy everyone who prefer to win the honest and skill required way.

      1. To be perfectly honest, I can’t totally agree with you.
        Okay, the glitch kill all the fun by cuting off 1/3 of the race. And those who don’t mind about beginners are bad people… blah..blah… I’m ok with this statement.

        But using this glitch requires skill. Much than required just to finish the race the honest way. You can’t deny it ;).

        1. What? Firstly, the glitch isn’t just unfair on beginners, it’s unfair on those who want to race through the track the way it was meant to be raced through and be rewarded for successfully racing.

          As for this glitch requiring skill, you just have to stop at the fall point, line yourself up and accelerate off. I guess it takes some type of ‘skill’ but not as much as turning perfect corners and avoiding obstacles would.

          People who use this glitch are like people who spam Hadoukens in Street Fighter, the tactic is more easily pulled off than pulling off more complex and thought out strategies that the game intends players to use and it greatly increases the chances of losing for those who want to be rewarded for playing the game it was meant to be played.

          I’m really not sure what you were getting at.

        2. What skill? Use a mushroom, hit a wall, glitch achieved.
          Honestly I can’t agree with this glitch, especially when they proclaimed it a “super shortcut” or “ultra shortcut” or whatever. Whenever I play ANY Mario Kart game online I play honestly, not like the unfortunate bunch that wants to ruin it with cheat codes, emulators, r4s, homebrews, whatever that can produce infinite items or float in mid air to piss other players off. Yes I’m talking about Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii.

          I do enjoy Mario Kart 7, I’m glad no one has yet to cheat like the predecessors. And Maka Wuhu is a great track, it’s a crying shame that I have to stoop to mostly everyone’s level to use this glitch to have a chance at finishing the race. And it’s equally annoying that as soon as the entire population knows about it, they won’t stop choosing it. I really wish Nintendo could find a way to fix this but if there’s not a chance then it’s a shame that nobody will enjoy this track like it’s supposed to be played.

  3. I know the glitch in this track and always try to play fair. But if I happened to race with someone in an online play who tries to use the glitch, I shall do the same thing as well, that’s why I always try to keep my distance behind my opponent when we’re about to approach the spot. Lakitu then picks us up to the surface together, we race again to which I am now in front of him.
    Not long after that, I got disconnected.

    Now that’s a way to end up an unfinished race for real losers.

    1. I had a 1 on 1 match on that course, it was a stand off at the beginning. Both of us waited until the other went. Ended with a disconnection (I think he dropped), neither of us made it to that spot as we both sat waiting.

  4. WTF. You know how much trust you’ve put into this random youtube user??? One that posts glitch videos online?

    I’m going to bet , that letter is from the mind of that youtube user.

  5. You people take Mario Kart 7 waaaay too seriously, those who complain about it so much should just go and buy a different console, people who take it seriously ruin the game for people even more than hackers/glitchers. Most of you are probably mad because you know someone else is mad, enjoy the game and be appricative or gtfo?

  6. i’ve never seen anyone choose this course online. i thought it was like an “honor system” or something

    1. I think you are right, most of the honorable players won’t choose it, and those that want an easy win that pick it (because they likely cannot win on other races). With it’s increased awareness most would just want course to be excluded. I tend to stick around to either stop or forced to join in if others do it. I refuse to lose to those that exploit it, but only do when I need to.

    2. I’m also glad to see that most of the times I’ve played online, the other players refuse to choose this track, me being one of them because of my obsession to choose Coconut Mall for reasons lol. But yeah I’m pretty sure it’s because no one approves of the glitch and prefer to use an “honor system” everyone seems to catch on quickly.

  7. I play online enough and have never run into this glitch. Granted, I don’t play everyday but still. I can understand the frustration though as that is one of my fav tracks.

    1. There’s a difference in being halted from playing (SS) and simply not using in Maka Wuhu. The player forces the later to happen and can choose to or not use it, where SS you cannot even play the game if encountered. Using the Maka Wuhu glitch doesn’t cease playing.

  8. I cant perform this glitch plus who cares how bad it is i mean look at skyward swords u lose all your data i mean were talking everything. Mk7 is just a sortcut u bitches need to grow up.

  9. Well seeing that I currently hold the fastest online record on time trials in Maka Wuhu by using the glitch, I’m not complaining. :)

      1. I did, still #1 with 1:16.991 (John C.) … unless Nintendo has failed to send my ghost data out for the reason that I did the cheat… but that wouldn’t be it because like the 5 places behind me did it too… Idk, but on my system atleast, I’m at #1. Why, what’s your time?

          1. If you can’t beat’em, then join’em, asshole. Atleast I’m not the one stealing other users’ names and calling people vaginas simply because they achieved something you never could.

  10. I don’t cheat at online video games. It takes the competition away. For now on i’ll just take last place in maka wuhu by sitting in the glitch spot and blocking people.

  11. I use the glitch every time ( online only ) only because i don’t wanna get 8 place because every one knows it. i know this is off topic but why did they take out the babies. I miss baby luigi and the bullet bike.

  12. Nintendo, give MARIO KART 7 Downloadable Content for god sake! The character roster is a shame, add some new courses so people don’t get bored of MK7 easily! It’s common sense. Add new auto parts, Do something! And fix the glitches, add wings to the blue shell please, it’s more annoying when it’s NOT flying. Fix the glitch of red shells, I got attacked by my own red shell. And yes, please fix the Maka Wuhu glitch, why are you guys saying you have no plans to? This course would be excellent to race on without that glitch! Comeon nintendo!

  14. Man back in the day, such a glitch was phenomenal!!
    But all I see now is bitching, and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching…. AND BITCHING.

    1. People are bitching, and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching and bitching…. AND BITCHING…
      because people like you are cheating, and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating and cheating…. AND CHEATING

  15. awww…

    I just found out about that glitch from a friend via Swapnote (or Letter Box) and yes, that shortcut is a bloody cheat. People aren’t even playing fair in this course on Mario Kart 7. >:(

  16. For those saying the glitch takes skill, I’m afraid you’re wrong. All you need to do is drive over the wall and into the water. Works every time, sadly.

  17. awww… please create that unfair advantage. That way, people who’s been cheating can stop cheating, so that we can all have a fair competition for once in a blue moon.

  18. Well, looks like I will be getting last place on that track, because I refuse to cheat online. Maka Wuhu was a great course until that glitch was discovered. Well, at least that’s the only bad course for now. I do wish they try to patch it one day.

  19. ITS NOT CHEATING IT IS ACTUALLY IN THE CODE THAT THIS IS POSSIBLE THUS MAKING IT A VIABLE MECHANIC OF THE GAME. I KNOW YOU ALL WOULD LIKE TO THINK OF YOURSELF AS DEFT MARIOKARTERS BUT EAT A DICK. IF SOMEONE USES IT GOOD FOR GOD DAMN THEM FOR USING WHAT THEY HAD TO THEIR ADVANTAGE. HOW ARE YOU COMPLAINING EVEN THOUGH YOU KNOW HOW TO DO IT? THIS READS SIMILAR TO HOW IT SOUNDS WHEN PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT THE FEATHER BECAUSE THEY CANT SEE AN ADVANTAGE/FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE IT IN A PROPER MANNER. I HAVE NEVER READ SO MANY FOPPISH GAMERS BITCH SO HARD WHILE THROWING THEMSELVES UP TOP THE MYSTICAL “HONOR” LADDER. MICROSOFT FORCES UPDATES FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS THAT NINTENDO DOESN’T NECESSARILY HAVE. FOR INSTANCE, YOU PAY FOR INTERNET ON THAT SYSTEM. THEY DAMN RIGHT BETTER KEEP THAT SPIC AND SPAN AND EVEN FOR ALL. PEOPLE PAY EVERY MONTH FOR THAT HORSEHOCKY. ALSO, LETS TALK ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY THAT SOMEONE PUT THAT/LEFT THAT THERE ON PURPOSE BEFORE IT WAS RELEASED, HM THATS JUST OUTRIGHT ABSURD AND I WOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ENTERTAINING SUCH VAPID NOTIONS. NO I NOT MAD. I DO NOT APOLOGIZE FOR MY LARGE LETTERS, IF YOU DONT LIKE THEM GO SHINE A COCK WHILE ASKING YOUR TEACHER WHY YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE WHO COULDNT FIGURE A WAY AROUND THE COCKSHINING LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DID WITH THE APPARENT SHORT CUT.

    TL;DR ISNT GLITCH WHAT MAKE FUN TIME?

    1. NO ARE YOU KIDDING YOU ARE AN IDIOT THE FACT THAT ITS A GLITCH IS WHAT MAKES IT CHEATING SHITWAD. WHY DONT YOU TAKE YOUR OSTENTATIOUS VOCABULARY AND SHOVE IT RIGHT UP YOUR ASS? OH WAIT IM SORRY YOU BYPASSED THAT AND IT WENT STRAIGHT DOWN THE URETHRA. WHAT AN AWESOME EXPLOIT, IM STARTING TO SEE WHAT YOU MEAN. IM NOT ABOUT THAT TRITE HONOR SHIT THAT THESE CHILDREN ARE THROWING ABOUT, ITS LIKE THEY HAVE TO DECLARE WHERE THEY PUT THEMSELVES. BUT WHY DECLARE THAT UNLESS YOU ARE UNSURE? I DONT KNOW, CONFIDENCE DOESNT COME EASY. MAYBE THEYRE ALL DRY OF CONFIDENCE BECAUSE OF THE FUCKING CHEAT YOU MAKE SUCH A LIGHT HEATED GESTURE AT. AND WE SURE ARENT HELPING BY CALLING IT OUT AS THE TOSSING ACT IT IS. SINCE I DONT ENJOY USING THE EXPLOIT AND OTHERS SEEM TO AGREE WE NEED TO FUCKING BAN THAT SHIT HARD. FUCK ANYONE DOING THAT EVER, IF THEY DO FUCK THEM AND THE MOTHERS THAT BORE THEM.

      1. YOU ARE SUCH A STAIN MADE OUT OF MISFORTUNE, I AM ALMOST IN PAIN THINKING ABOUT THE FACT THAT SOMEONE RAISED YOU. ACTUALLY TAUGHT YOU TO BE SUCH A WEAK MINDED LOUT. YOUR DAFT REBUTTAL IS ONLY NOTEWORTHY TO ME BECAUSE I HAPPEN TO KNOW YOU PRETTY WELL. SO FUCK YOU, ANYWAYS, YOU DAFT STRUMPET. IF YOU CANT GET AROUND THIS SINGLE LEVELS SINGLE GLITCH THAT YOU ARE TOO HIGH TO FUCKING USE, FINE BY ME HAVE YOUR FAKE MORALS AND PRIDE AND I WILL SIT HERE AND JERK OFF TO VIDEOS OF PEOPLE BEING UPSET AT THE FACT THAT THEY DIDNT PLAY THEIR CARDS CORRECTLY. YEAH I DO AGREE WITH THAT TOSSING ACT THING. JUST DONT USE IT AND BE BETTER THAN EVERYONE WHO DOES. OH YOU CANT DO THAT? WELL THEN THERE SEEMS TO BE AN OPTION AROUND HERE SOMEWHERE, WHERE IS IT? OH HERE IT IS! IT WAS HIDDEN UNDER YOUR FALSE SENSE OF WORTH.

  20. =/ You add a glitch to one of your new courses, so what was the point in adding the rest of the track? You could have spent more time fixing the online multi-player up to 10 players, instead of 8, and you could have improved the Wii courses in MK7. You should have added more battle courses, maybe the battle system like MKDS, but no, Nintendo wasted their time on a course that they knew would be glitched up. Wow, just wow, and you could have added the Mega Mushroom, why did you guys take it out? Are you guys morons? I’m glad the Thunder-Cloud is gone, I never want that item in a Mario Kart game again. The Lucky 7 should be token’d, it’s just a lag monster in Worldwide races/battles. Just saying!

  21. “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.”

    Does that mean they’re unable to patch the game?

    If so, LOL!

  22. They seriously need to patch it up. Online play is so damn unfair with that, and i really love that track! T^T (besides bowser’s castle 1) I wouldn’t stoop so low as to use that damn glitch to cheat, i like playing honorably.
