Mario Kart 8 Has Already Surpassed 1.2 Million in Sales

Nintendo has just announced that Mario Kart 8 has already managed to surpass the 1.2 million mark in sales after only being out on store shelves for a couple of days.

"The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead," Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime said. "This year’s E3 is just days away, and it will be all about the future games for Nintendo platforms. This milestone is a great place to start!"

Nintendo will once again be foregoing the traditional E3 press conference format in favor of a Direct-esque "Digital Event," which it will be broadcasting Tuesday morning, June 10th.

In the meantime, be sure to let us know what you'd like to see from the company next week at E3, and check out our predictions if you're looking for a little inspiration.
