Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is Nintendo's best-selling game

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

As we learned earlier this week from the company’s financial results, the racer sold 61.97 million units. The only title to technically sell more than that is Wii Sports with 82 million units. However, since it’s a bundle bundled with the Wii in some territories, it’s not exactly the same.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is by far the best-selling game on the Switch. The next closest is Animal Crossing: New Horizons with 45.36 million. In case you missed it, you can find the latest million sellers list shared this week here.

Don’t forget that the original Mario Kart 8 was also the best-selling title on the Wii U. For that version, sales reached 8.46 million copies. Combined with the Switch version, the total is just over 70 million – a quite significant number.
