Mario Kart 8 Sells 1.2 Million Over the Release Weekend

Mario Kart 8 has managed to sell 1.2 million copies in its first weekend on the market, making it the fastest selling Wii U game to date. The announcement came this morning after a successful weekend for both Mario Kart 8 and the struggling Wii U, both of which were included in a popular bundle released May 30. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime had the following to say:

“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!”

Nintendo also provided a look at the overall sales of past Mario Kart titles.

    They can do even more stuff and power ups in mario games.You know what would be cool?A Mario game with every single power up from old to new.

    Well i’m not surprised that Mario Kart 8 has already 1.2 million sales, it’s really fun, I got it yesterday and I unlocked mostly everything, except does anyone know how to unlock the final 6 characters? I got the one’s from the cup except I don’t know how to get the other ones.

      use different cc’s and different cups. if you play the same cup on the same cc u won’t unlock a character

            How many times am I able to down vote a comment again?

            Coughing up Metal Rosalina, Golden Waluigi, and Bronze Bowser. lol…………. 🙂

          5. Mr. Sushi

            Waluigi before Bowser? If that did happen, I would be SO confused at what Nintendo is going for.

  6. Boo3DGoldBoo

    Nintendo 3ds sales are a bit bad at the beggining too, but now are in a very good place, I think the same thing is happening to Wii U. (I’m so curious to know about smash bros. sales)

  7. Nookling

    I heard over 80% of sales in UK were for the bundle! So it’s not just the people who already have a U too 🙂

  8. Where's Honey Queen?

    Considering how little the Wii U has sold, this is really impressive! So happy that a worthwhile game is getting the sales it deserves!

    1. Bowser498

      This is crazy! 11 likes for a comment must mean that it is the “best comment” on the page lol… *Celebrates the Release Date of MK8*. 😛

  9. Mr. Sushi

    Wow, the Mario Kart series has sold over 100 million copies, and over 50 million are from Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii alone!

    1. Person McPerson

      of course.
      mario kart ds is in the top 30 best-selling video games, and mario kart wii is in the top 15

  10. Where's Honey Queen?

    Mario Kart 8 already has more than 20% of Mario Kart Super Circuit’s total sales in its opening weekend sales alone. That in itself is glorious.
