Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, has zoomed past another incredible milestone!

Can you believe it? Even after nearly seven years since its release, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still dominating the gaming scene like a champ. Last year, we cheered as it crossed the 50 million sales mark, and now, hold on to your red shells because it's hit an even more mind-blowing milestone in just one year! Nintendo's latest quarterly financial report unveiled the staggering news: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has now soared to a whopping 60.58 million sales worldwide since its epic debut back in April 2017 until December 2023.

What's even more thrilling is that our favorite kart racer has clinched the title of the best-selling Switch game ever, leaving its rivals in the dust. Sorry Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Mario Odyssey—it looks like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has claimed the gold cup!

Just imagine that in the past year alone, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has burned rubber to the tune of around eight million copies sold. That's right, a staggering eight million! It's a testament to the timeless appeal of this classic game, originally based on a decade-old Wii U version. Who says age slows you down? But let's not forget the turbo boosters that fuelled this phenomenal success. Thanks to the Super Mario Bros. Movie and the Booster Course Pass, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has been supercharged with six DLC waves, adding a whopping 96 tracks and bringing back beloved characters from Mario Kart history. Now, that's what I call a winning formula!
