Mario Kart 8 has just become the fastest selling Wii U game to date, as Nintendo today revealed that the racer has sold over 1.2 million units worldwide, since it’s release last week.

“The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead,” said Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “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!”
