Whenever resentful racing fans ask why we’re still playing a pretty good expansion port for Wii U games on Switch, the answer is always sales. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe On Switch includes all previous DLC and added battle mode on arrival, but otherwise I’m playing the same MK game. May 2014.. Why? Because people keep buying it.

As Switch hardware sales remain high, many new hires are naturally getting good racers. Since the release of Switch in April 2017, it has become the ultimate evergreen title. Only in the first two quarters of this year, we shifted to another title. 3.34 million units.. For the past six months (until September 30th), Switch has been the second best-selling product, second only to newcomers. The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HDIt’s crazy.

And now, in terms of sales, it’s overtaking what was considered the unruly leader of racing games.Yes it’s over Mario Kart Wii..

  • Mario Kart Wii Lifetime Sale- 37.38 million
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe so far- 38.74 million

It’s also the best-selling switch game ever, ahead of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The racer’s continued momentum is also gaining strength.

It’s a great success for Nintendo and an absolutely great entry in the series. This continuous momentum can help explain why the next entry in the series takes so long to appear. What’s the rush when existing games are still working? And no, Mario Kart Tour When Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit Do not count as the “main” entry in our book.

So you have it, MK8 Deluxe is still dominant. As a result, the MK9 still feels quite distant.
