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.

Looks Like next week it passes Watch
Dogs on PS4. because it says 2.36 total
after 10 weeks not 2.29. So we can't
even trust what the BIG BOLD NUMBER is

Most probably :v, but even if it hasn't
the game is still heavily undertracked,
I doubt that around 400k units of the
game where collecting in shelves.

so it was at 2.82 million shipped and
digital too as of june 30
it might
have passed 3 million already O_O

Tak, when did they said it was sold?
When it comes to this results, it always
shipped, so it is shipped + digital,
though either way, it seems to be quite
undertracked here, unless Nintendo had
like 300-350k units sitting on shelves,
by the end of June.
