Mario Kart 8 Deluxe breaks a million sold in Japan

Post by Gameguy1996 on Wed Dec 27, 2017 10:40 pm

It looks like Japan loves to play Mario Kart on the go.

Go Nintendo wrote:There's been a lot of sales milestones for Switch games in Japan, but I find this one super impressive. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has just broken a million units sold, hitting 1,045,438 units with this week's sales data. That figure doesn't even include digital sales. This number impresses me because we're talking about a slightly updated version of Mario Kart 8, which didn't release all that long ago! Goes to show how little love the Wii U got.


With how while a port of 8 is doing you kind of question why Nintendo would want to work on Mario Kart 9 so soon even though I'm sure it would sell almost double then what Deluxe is at right now.


Thanks Zero Smile

I'd still be all up for more DLC for Deluxe, never have a dislike buying some new courses or battle stages

This isn't really a huge surprise, Mario Kart always does well, even if this is for the better part just a port. But considering that last part, it IS impressive that it already has reached a million in Japan, making it the third game to hit 1 million in Japan on Switch. (after Splatoon 2 and Odyssey)
