Default Mario Kart 7 online question.

Hi all. I have searched this forum and all over the web and cannot find a yay or nay answer.
Okay, my fiance and I were playing MK7 online when our son decided he wanted to play too. Both my fiance and I have physical copies of the game (well, his is the downloaded version), but my son does not. We understand that he can play locally via download play, but we wanted him to join in with us online so we could all 3 play with other people online. Is that possible? I even searched Nintendo's MK7 site and it didn't say either way. Basically, does everyone need a physical copy of the game to play online multiplayer? Thanks.

Yes you all need a physical copy to play online unless he downloads/buys the full game of the Eshop or purchases the cartridge.

Since not everybody owns the game, someone can host a session through Local Multiplayer and the other two players join in through 3DS Download Play. Hope this helped!
