Nintendo has announced that the outstanding Mario Kart 8 has sold through 2.82 million copies since it launched at the end of May. Mario Kart 8 has only been out for just over a month but the title has been sold to nearly half of the population that own a Wii U. Nintendo has seen a surge in sales for the latest home console and will hopefully ride some of this momentum into the coming holiday season.

Nintendo has a number of high profile titles headed to the system so it will be interesting to see how Nintendo’s latest home console performs.
