The 3DS version of Mario Kart, version 7, has been updated for the first time in about ten years.
With the release of new DLC courses and the option to choose your own set of in-game goodies, Mario Kart update may have you thinking, “Oh, that’s got to be for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.” As a matter of fact, what you’ll find is an upgrade to Mario Kart 7, the seventh game in the series, which originally debuted on the 3DS in 2011.
What’s New to Mario Kart 7?
The update dropped yesterday, on the 13th of December, although it’s hard to tell what’s new from the description. The only thing that has changed, according to the patch notes, is that “many bugs have been resolved to improve the gameplay experience.”
The last time the game was updated was in May of 2012, and even then, it simply fixed a glitch that allowed players to skip ahead in three of the songs.
If you’re still playing Mario Kart 7, you can rest assured that the overall quality of your gameplay experience has been elevated thanks to this update.
The update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which allows you to use only blue shells if you’re feeling masochistic, is the more thrilling of the two recent releases. In addition to the main game, the new DLC wave contains eight tracks spread across two new cups.
