Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe best-selling Nintendo game

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has taken the crown as Nintendo’s best-selling game ever.

As we found out earlier this week from the company’s financial results, the racer has sold 61.97 million units. The only title that technically sold more than that is Wii Sports at 82 million units. However, since that was a pack-in with Wii in some territories, it’s not quite the same.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe update 3.0.1

The patch addresses a few issues that recently popped up. Get the full rundown below.

To celebrate the recent launch of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC, we’ve put together a big list of all the unlockables it has to offer (which isn’t very many, but still). The game just wrapped up its Booster Course Pass, which brings its ten-year lifespan to a close… maybe. Despite its age, the title is still selling boatloads of copies, which means new players are discovering the game every day. 

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe version 3.0.0 balance changes

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe brought along its version 3.0.0 update this week with Wave 6 of the Booster Course DLC, and while Nintendo’s patch notes covered some other aspects we weren’t originally expecting, balance changes have been discovered. Fans have gotten to work to see what changed with vehicles. We also have tidbits about new characters Diddy Kong, Funky Kong, Pauline, and Peachette.

Mario Kart Blog was the first to post about the balance changes. Meester_Tweester then compiled everything into a readable format for English fans.
