Nintendo has said it doesn't intend to update Mario Kart 7 to remove a glitch on the Maka Wuhu track.
The exploit in question allows underhand players to drive off the course at a certain point and respawn much further up the circuit near the next checkpoint, essentially skipping about a third of the track, something that's clearly an annoyance when used against players during online races.
Nintendo of America said in a statement emailed to Stick Twiddlers: "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."
Nintendo said last month that it is to offer a fix for a game-breaking save glitch found in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, with users given the option to either download a patch or send the platform holder their SD card or Wii console.
