UK video game journalist Christopher Dring has revealed on Twitter that the enhanced Wii U port of Mario Kart 8 on Nintendo Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, has shifted more physical copies in 2020 than it did the previous year, 2019. In fact this has been the case each year since the game launched on the Nintendo Switch back on 28th April 2017. As Mr. Dring notes, this isn’t bad for an upgraded port!
Mario Kart 8: Deluxe has sold more in 2020 (UK boxes sales) than it did in 2019. In fact, the game has sold better and better each and every year since it was released in 2017. Not bad for an upgraded port, eh?
