In only one day, mario kart 8 deluxe has outsold all other videogames this year on amazon. This is amazing news, as this year has already had some huge titles such as Resident evil 7, Legend of zelda: Breath of the wild, Horizon: Zero dawn and Mass Effect:Andromeda. Well mario kart 8 deluxe has outsold them all, at least on amazon.
This is very promising for the switch, even though mario kart is a remake of a 3 year old game that more than 8 million people bought, thats nothing compared to 35 million for mario kart wii, 23 million for mario kart ds, and 13 million for mario kart 7 for the 3ds. mario kart 8 deluxe has the potential to bring in all of those who want to pick up the newest mario kart game, and in turn purchase a switch.
