Game Overview

Mario Kart 8 is the eighth entry in the Mario Kart series of games, developed by Nintendo EAD and released exclusively on the Wii U. This will be the first installment of the series featured on an 8th-generation main console and supports up to four-player kart racing.

Mario Kart 8 follows the gameplay of the rest of the Mario Kart series, with up to four players racing against CPU players to pass the finish line first on a variety of courses. The game features a variety of weapons, which players are encouraged to collect and use against other characters in order to achieve victory. The game strongly draws from the significant changes added in Mario Kart 7, and also adds in new features such as gravity-switching.

Nintendo's latest financial report
revealed that this game sold (shipped +
digital) 4.77M units in 2014. Double
Dash, prepare to be topped.

so this is imo close to 4.6 million all
together(which is absolutely insane that
it sold almost 5 million in 1 year on a
console with less than a 9 million
install base
