Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is undoubtedly a juggernaut, selling over 57 million units since it launched a month after the Switch itself back in 2017. Since then it’s also been a familiar sight in the NPD (now Circana) best selling games list for the United States, never leaving the top 20 – until now.
Of course if you were playing games last month you’d know just how stacked it was! There was Super Mario Bros. Wonder, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Sonic Superstars, the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection…
It’s also worth noting that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe held that spot for so long purely from physical game sales – Nintendo does not report digital numbers to Circana.
Nevertheless, with the holidays just around the corner we’re sure to see Mario Kart 8 Deluxe screech back into the charts.Leave a Comment
