Nintendo is regarded as one of the most beloved video game companies in the history of the gaming world. Mario, which is arguably its most popular creation, has seen several spinoffs and that includes the Mario Kart series.
The Mario Kart series currently is on its 8th installment as it released on Nintendo Switch and Wii U back in 2014. Now it seems the game has broken a very impressive record that is sure to please Nintendo.
According to a report by Complex, Mario Kart 8 is now the best-selling racing game of all time in the United States. The previous holder of the impressive record was Mario Kart Wii, which released back in 2008.
In the last six years, Mario Kart 8 has sold an astounding 40 million copies around the world and even now it gets a lot of support.
Of course, this should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following the Mario Kart series for a long time. The series became an instant hit with fans with its debut on Super Nintendo back in the 90s and it continues to be tremendously popular, as evident from its record-breaking sales.
