A strong start for the game...
After releasing on Friday, Mario Kart 8 is off to one hell of a start. Nintendo has announced that the game sold 1.2 million copies worldwide in its first weekend. (You can read our review of the game here.)
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said in the statement, "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!"
The game is latest in a franchise that has sold over 100 million copies.
