    Mario Kart 8 sales open at 1.2 million worldwide

    Mario Kart 8 sold 1.2 million total copies across Japan, Europe and the Americas in its opening weekend, Nintendo announced.

    "The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead," said Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. "This year's E3 is just days away, and it will be all about the future games for Nintendo platforms. This milestone is a great place to start!"

    With Mario Kart 8, sales for the Mario Kart series have topped over 101 million worldwide. The highest-selling game in the series was Mario Kart Wii with 35.53 million units sold, followed by Mario Kart DS at 23.56 million.

    Should not have taken 2 years to get here. Nintendo is flirting with too little too late.

    Great sales numbers for the first weekend. It's hard for me to believe the Wii U is making a come back. Everyone knows Mario Kart is Nintendo's most popular series. Additionally, they're giving away a free game with purchase. I'm actually surprised we didn't see every Wii U owner buy a copy of the game.

    1.2 mil worldwide means that everyone that has a Wii U bought the game.

    Good numbers, and to say the least, they were expected. I preordered last August.
