In its first day on the market, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold over 459,000 copies in the U.S., Nintendo announced today. That figure accounts for combined packaged and digital sales.

Nintendo says that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is now “the fastest-selling game in the long-running Mario Kart series.” Mario Kart Wii previously held the record with about 433,900 copies in 2008 during its first day.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe currently has an attach rate of 45 percent. Nearly one in two Switch owners in the U.S. bought a copy of the game.

Today’s full announcement:

In its first week, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe climbed to the top of the UK charts. It was the first Nintendo game to reach that mark since Pokemon White in 2011.

An additional piece of information has now come in about the racer’s performance. It not only had a bigger week than Mario Kart 8 on Wii U, but also 3DS’ Mario Kart 7.

We should be receiving sales data for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in Japan later this week. For North America, it’s unclear when Nintendo will make any numbers known.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is off to a fantastic start in the UK. With the latest UK charts beginning to surface, this marks the first time that a Nintendo boxed game has reached the top spot since 2011. Pokemon White on DS was the last title to accoplish the feat. Additionally, it’s the first Mario game at the top spot since Mario Kart Wii.

GamesIndustry also reports that “Nintendo used the launch of its racer to ship more Switch stock to retailers, which has seen The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild return to the Top Five (at No.5) with a 68% increase in sales week-on-week.” Puyo Puyo Tetris debuted at the 18th spot, “with the majority of sales coming on Nintendo Switch.”

The preliminary charts are as follows:
