Mario Kart 8 is the Fastest Selling Wii U Game


No huge surprise here, but Mario Kart 8 is a big hit for the Wii U.

According to Nintendo the game sold more than 1.2 million copies worldwide between its release May 29 in Japan and May 30 in North America and Europe and June 2.

“The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead,” Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America president and COO, said.  “This year’s E3 is just days away, and it will be all about the future games for Nintendo platforms.”

That’s really good news for the Wii U, and it’s likely the Mario Kart 8 bundles will boost overall Wii U sales. There’s certainly evidence for that in the UK, where Wii U hardware sales for the week of release increased 666 percent.
