Nintendo announced during its annual shareholders meeting in Japan that in just under a month, Mario Kart 8's sell-through numbers have reached approximately two million worldwide.

It looks like consumers have finally found a compelling enough reason to shell out the $299 asking price for Nintendo's tablet-centric console, even if Mario Kart 8 doesn't make particularly great use of the GamePad.
