More on Mario Kart

Nintendo press release:

Nintendo reported today that the game sold more than 1.2 million total units across Japan, Europe and the Americas during its first weekend on the market.

Excluding Mario Kart 8, Mario Kart Advance remains the weakest entry in the series at 5.91 million units. There is work to be done.

Liam Martin, Digital Spy:

Mario Kart 8 has boosted weekly Wii U console sales by 666% in the UK.

My prediction is looking up.
