Does not surprise me one bit. In Germany the game is popular for local multiplayer during lunch hour, and it is probably the main seller of the Nintendo Switch, even ahead of Breath of the Wild.

To elaborate a little more with an anecdote:

At my work there was 4 of us that began playing Mario Kart at lunch. Two years later, it was easy to fill up all the slots in a multiplayer match. We have had so many players that often we have two different games going on. Usually it is board games and card games that occupied us at lunch, but Mario Kart is now the champion.

It's quite fun because when you are hooked up online you can fill up remaining slots with online players.

Anyway. There are always people seeing the group play, and they want to join in. That's the main reason why they buy a Switch.

12 out of 20 are Switch exclusives. That's pretty impressive for a PlayStation dominated country and the large PS4 install base. It seems that rather many different games are being bought for PS4 than a few system sellers.
