The latest entry into the series, and first on the Wii U, launched around the world this weekend. The game has also been seeing very positive reviews and had total sales if $1.2 million since launching. Those sales are inclusive of Japan, Europe and North America.

“The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead,” said Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “This year’s E3 is just days away, and it will be all about the future games for Nintendo platforms. This milestone is a great place to start!”
