Nintendo had many hopes in the release of Mario Kart 8 for Wii U, considering it a product that could significantly boost the sales of the console in all markets.
The game has started very strong in the United Kingdom, to drive sales of Wii U 666% compared to the data of the previous week.

Us also cites the imminent E3 of Los Angeles to “learn everything about the upcoming titles that are to come for Nintendo platforms”.
