With all the hype surrounding the release of Mario Kart 8, it looks like fans are eating up the chance to pre-order the game. Over the weekend, Mario Kart 8 surpassed the PS4 in terms of best sellers on Amazon’s video game section. It’s back behind the PS4 right now at number 6, but as more teaser videos and the release date get closer, we expect Mario Kart 8 to jump up a few more spots. Currently it’s sitting at number 1 in the Wii U category and has been for a few months now, so people are definitely excited about getting their hands on the game.
Outside of the United States the game has been performing well, too. Amazon Japan saw Mario Kart 8 sitting above the PlayStation 4 as well on its charts shortly after the Nintendo Direct last week. With 32 playable tracks, 30 characters and several vehicle customization features, we’re super excited about this release, too.
