Mario Kart 8 Boosts Wii U Sales 666%
It’s being reported that the Wii U is getting a great sales boost following the launch of Mario Kart 8.
GFK Chart-Track, a UK retail tracking company, reports that Wii U sales skyrocketed up 666% percent following the launch of Mario’s latest kart racer. Chart-Track states that 82% of these consoles were the Mario Kart 8 bundle.
Nintendo has stated that it believes Mario Kart 8 is the game to turn the Wii U sales around, which the system desperately needs considering its poor sales resulted in Nintendo’s third consecutive annual loss earlier this year.
