Mario Kart 8 sells over 1 million units in debut weekend

The iconic Nintendo racing franchise starts off strong

Posted on

Nintendo has announced that Mario Kart 8 sold more than 1.2 million total units across Japan, Europe and the Americas during its first weekend on the market.

This performance by the popular racing franchise was enough to claim the title of the fastest-selling Wii U game ever.

Prior to Mario Kart 8, the seven games that have launched previously in the series have combined to sell more than 100 million total units worldwide. This includes two of the best-selling video games of all time: Mario Kart Wii for Wii and Mario Kart DS for the Nintendo DS family of systems.

Mario Kart 8 launched last week, exclusively for the Wii U.
