Nintendo has confirmed that from May 29th to June 1st, Mario Kart 8 has sold more that 1.2 million copies around the world. This makes Mario Kart 8 nearly the 6th best selling Wii U game.These numbers are absolutely great for you Nintendo fans out there. This also shows that Nintendo still has fuel left in the tank (which I personally have never doubted) and it can still produce well-crafted iterations of it’s most popular franchises.
Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime said:
The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead. This year’s E3 is just days away, and it will be all about the future games for Nintendo platforms. This milestone is a great place to start!
With Wii U sales up because of this game, it looks like Nintendo is heading into the right direction.
