Guía de Regalos

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With more than 459,000 combined packaged and digital sales in the U.S.
on launch day alone (April 28), Mario
Kart 8 Deluxe
for the Nintendo
Switch
system is the fastest-selling game in the long-running Mario
Kart
series. The previous record holder for the highest first-day
sales in the franchise was Mario Kart Wii, with U.S. sales of
approximately 433,900 when it launched in 2008. The solid sales numbers
for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe equate to an attach rate of 45 percent –
meaning nearly one in two Nintendo Switch owners in the U.S. purchased a
copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the first day it was available. To
date, more than 2.7 million Nintendo Switch systems have been sold
globally.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has also received more perfect review scores
than any other Mario Kart game ever. With a current Metacritic
score of 93, the critically acclaimed title is the highest-rated game in
the series in 15 years – tying the overall review score of Mario
Kart: Super Circuit
for Game Boy Advance.

To continue this strong momentum into the summer, a series of great
games will launch for Nintendo Switch over the next few months,
including Minecraft:
Nintendo Switch Edition
(May 11), Ultra
Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers
(May 26), ARMS
(June 16) and Splatoon
