About Half of All Wii U Owners Have a Copy of Mario Kart 8
Mario Kart 8 has now sold 3.49 million copies as of September 30. With Wii U hardware sales currently sitting at 7.29 million units, that’s about a 48 percent attach rate. This assumes, however, that people did not buy multiple copies of the game.
Strong sales for Mario Kart 8 are not entirely unexpected. After all, the game was adored by critics and the kart racing franchise is one of the most beloved from Nintendo of all time.
Mario Kart 8’s release in May is just the beginning for the Wii U game. Multiple paid expansion packs are in the works. The Zelda-themed DLC Pack 1 coming in November includes three playable characters–Link, Tanooki Mario, and Cat Peach–four karts, and eight tracks. It’s priced at $8 on its own, or $12 as part of a bundle that also gets you the Animal Crossing-themed DLC pack coming next year.
