Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is going to pass Mario Kart 7 this year at this rate. What a beast.

Woah! New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, didn't expect sales to be so high already :O

18M forecast. Does it mean no new SKU this year?

They should do 20M when we see the current numbers, transit has been severly adjusted so we can expect a strong next Q, and the line up is powerfull for the coming Qs. I would do the same actually to produce positive revisions in the forecast at the end of the next Qs.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was easily my most played game last year, largely because everyone at work likes to play it during lunch hour. It is a game very well suited to the hardware.
