Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is Nintendo's first UK chart topper in six years

Almost half of all US Switch owners now own a copy.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has had a strong start in both the UK and North America, according to numbers data from both Nintendo and Chart-Track.

 

Here in the UK, the game is the first Nintendo-published title to top the charts since Pokémon White in 2011.

 

Mario Kart 8's release also coincided with a new Switch hardware shipment, sending sales of Zelda: Breath of the Wild up 68 per cent, too.

 

Across the pond, Nintendo's remastered racer shifted 459,000 copies on its US launch day, Nintendo has said, making it the fastest-selling Mario Kart game ever.
