Nintendo has announced that Mario Kart 8 has sold 1.2 million copies in its first three days in North America, Europe, and Japan.
This also marks the fastest selling Mario Kart game of the series, surpassing Mario Kart Wii, which sold 1.1 copies worldwide in its first three days.
“The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead,” said Nintendo of America’s President and COO, Reggie Fils-Aime in a statement released yesterday. “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!”
We’re glad that Mario Kart 8 is selling well. Let’s hope Nintendo will continue the good news, as E3 is just around the corner – the Wii U currently needs all the help it can get.
