Out of the top ten, six are 2D platformers and four are kart racers. Mario Kart Wii almost reaches Super Mario Bros. levels of sales, that's absolutely insane. I wonder if Mario Kart 8D can even reach close numbers.

Damn, you're right. MKWii was a beast. I still can't believe Nintendo was able to sell a piece of plastic as a steering wheel which served no functional purpose. I remember playing the game a ton, but I actually enjoyed the DS version moreso. It was the first 3D Mario Kart on a handheld and the online at the time was pretty sweet.

The sales data per week will not continue?

Read something last year that they're meant to be re-working it to include digital sales in some way. But heard nothing since so who knows.

The old charts will not be continued. They stopped with the last week of 2018. Instead we will now report on shipment numbers from official sources.
