Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - 22.96 million
Mario Kart 8 - 8.44 million

Total: 31.40 million

5.84 million away from surpassing MKWii. Deluxe has 14.28 million to go.

And at the current rate, deluxe alone will do it.

Good prediction, tbone.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe have now outsold Mario Kart Wii. An imppresive feat considering that the Switch itself haven't outsold the Wii yet.

As of today this is the longest we've ever gone without a new Mario Kart title.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to Today = 1651 days (April 28th 2017 to 4th November 2021)
Mario Kart 64 to Mario Kart Super Circuit = 1650 days (14th December 1996 to 21st June 2001)

If you don't class Deluxe as it's just an upgrade of 8 then well... Mario Kart 8 to Today = 2716 days (29th May 2014 to 4th November 2021)

Mario Kart 9 is well overdue.

Mario Kart 8 will keep selling until 9 comes out.

MK9 is well overdue, but I don't see it launching until the Switch successor. No need to cut off MK8D's legs while it is still selling a ton.

Yeah I don't see it coming out on Switch, it'll be a launch title (or very close to launch) for the next console.

Launch title would be a big seller for sure. Either that or if it the Switch successor launches in March like the Switch I could see it launching that first holiday season.

As the title says do you think Mario Kart 8 (Wii U + NS) has a chance of catching up and beating the sales of Mario Kart Wii to become the best-selling Mario Kart game of all time?

No
