I don't know what it is but something makes me prefer this version over the switch port. Could be aby bumber of things like the lack of (ugly) purple sparks or the better online (imo) but the Wii U version just well felt warmer than the switch port or something.

I doubt it can pass SMK, at least the Wii U version. Passing Super Circuit was a pleasant surprise, and it pulled off a near miracle by passing Double Dash, but now it's just out of time. It has a long way to go, and no one's gonna buy a Wii U with the Switch coming out.

@PAOerfulone Perhaps, but after the Switch's enhanced port I don't see why people would go back to a now old and outdated console for an inferior port of the game, and furthermore almost 2/3 of people have already bought this. I think if anymore people are going to want this version of Mario Kart, they'd rather get it on a console base that'll likely be more alive than the Wii U ever was.

@b00moscone
VGChartz has Super Mario Kart at 8.76 million
Based on Nintendo's Offical sales site:
https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/sales/software/wiiu.html
Mario Kart 8 was at 7.70 million by the end of June, just around 1 million below.
I'd say there's a chance, not a big one, but a chance, that the Wii U version of Mario Kart 8 ALONE could pass Super Mario Kart! I mean talk about legs!

b00moscone posted 23/10/2016, 10:58
It's above Double Dash!

And I think if you want to include the Switch port it'll likely pass Super Mario Kart too, though without I doubt it.

About half of Wii U owners have this. And the latest week of sales has MK8 selling over 90% as many copies as the Wii U about 18 months later. Even compared to prior Mario Kart entries, this is a ludicrously high attach rate.

I really wish Nintendo was more competitive with software pricing. I kinda want this game but its not worth $60 to me.

That's an advantage Sony and Xbox offer. I can get the most desired games on those consoles for like $20 a year after release.

Nintendo says 5.87m as of september 30.

Indeed more than Super Circuit. Just a million to go for Double Dash! I'd say it's a given, could even put up a fist against Super Mario Kart.

With a bit of undertrackage, plus digital sales which could be quite decent, this game could be at something like 4.3m. Beating Super Circuit and the SNES original is a definate as far as I'm concerned. Beating Double Dash! is a good possibility, maybe even more in the long run.
