Since Mario Kart 8’s release on Friday, the game has sold more than 1.2 million units across Japan, Europe, and the Americas.
“The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “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!”
Mario Kart 8’s sales announcement comes days before the E3 conference where Nintendo plans on introducing new games and software for the Wii U and 3DS.
