by Jerry

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was officially released on Nintendo Switch on April 28, 2017. Much awaited by fans, the game made a real hit on the new console of Big N. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe achieved the best start in its history with nearly 500,000 games sold in just one day and in the USA alone. Here we go!

Nintendo is definitely having a successful year. Since the announcement of its Nintendo Switch, the Japanese giant sells them by pallets and breaks all sales records. Bad languages had predicted a flop, Nintendo showed how much resources it had.

The question of games was then raised by observers. If the hybrid concept of the Switch has seduced fans and curious, to reach a wider audience, the games must follow. To seduce, Nintendo has therefore first relied on its successful licenses. Zelda: Breat of The Wild was a hit and everyone was looking forward to the new game of Big N: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: 459,000 sales in the US in one day

Obviously the players to wait for him were very numerous since 459,000 units were sold in just one day and only in the United States. With such performances, Nintendo broke a new record. This is the best start of a Mario Kart in the history of the license.

Previously, the record was held by Mario Kart Wii with 433,900 copies sold on the first day in the USA. In its press release, Nintendo stated that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's tether rate was 45%. This means that almost one in two Nintendo Switch owners bought Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the day of its release.

The results in the rest of the world are not yet known, but the trend is expected to follow everywhere. Because, like Zelda: Breath of The Wild, this new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is unanimous. It is the best-selling game in the history of the license because it is also, according to experts, the best Mario Kart ever made.
