Mario Kart 8 shows that Nintendo might not be in as much trouble as people think.
Mario Kart 8 was recently released and by the looks of the various review scores and the mostly positive response from gamers, Nintendo has a real winner on their hands. You can also look to the sale numbers as well to see just how positive the response has been for Mario Kart 8. During the first weekend with it being available to consumers, Mario Kart 8 sold 1.2 million units in Japan, Europe, and the United States. E3 is almost here and what better way to drum up hype for Nintendo than with one of their properties doing well.
“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!”
