Nintendo continues the hot streak it began with the Switch launch with the roll-out of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which has already surpassed a million sales in its first weekend on the market. Some doubted that the expansion title would be able to hold its own in the market, being an upgrade of a preexisting title. But the game is selling extremely well out of the gate and, considering the longevity that this franchise has demonstrated time and time again over the years, will likely continue to do well in the weeks and even months to come. It could be well on its way to passing Breath of the Wild as the Switch’s most popular title.
Persona 5 (inc Japan/Asia sales) and Mario Kart 8 join the million sellers list for April 2017. https://t.co/gyyKfRTBSB
