During his appearance on YouTube Live at E3, Reggie revealed that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the best-selling single SKU. We should have more information about the game’s sales and Nintendo’s overall performance on June 19.

    Mario Kart 8 sold 470,000 copies in its second month (June 2014). If Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sells the same, then it will have crossed 1 million copies sold in just over a month (Last 2 days of April + May).

    It will also be interesting to see how well USF2 and Disgaea 5 Complete sell.

    • Disgaea 5 Complete already outsold the PS4 version in the West. The pre-order sales were 110K last time NIS spoke on it and stated that it exceeded PS4 first 3 month sales.

        D5 should sell at least 85,000 copies in the US. Wonder where that would place in the charts.

        Preorder numbers aren’t necessarily sold numbers but I hope you are right and Disgaea 5 did well since it’s a great game.

    Hm i feel like then the Switch perhaps didn’t sell the most for the month of May then? Feel like he would of mentioned that too if it were the case.

      I’m pretty confident it did, unless stock was that big of an issue.

  • N need to fix the MK8D’s broken/outdated its online multiplayer system; we expect an improvement from MK8, not just mii outfit lobby “fix”. Kill the hair pulling problems: Difficult to join / queue, that infamous “Communication error occured” thing etc. Need to separate players by regions by default; to avoid that peer to peer lag / funny no hit but celebrating, etc. If the lobby could be like ARMS, that’d be a great forward step.

      You have a region mode
