Earlier this week–for a brief period of time—Mario Kart 8 surpassed the PlayStation 4 in sales on Amazon. The game isn’t set for a release until the end of the month, and the PS4 has been out since November, but the upcoming racer was still anticipated through the website.
“We are excited about the launch of Mario Kart 8 as are fans of the franchise, and consider it a ‘must-have’ game for any Mario Kart fan, Wii U owner, or any Nintendo fan in general. With this type of anticipation, we also look forward to bringing in new players who may have never played a kart game, or Wii U for that matter,” says Matt Ryan, the communications manager for Nintendo of Canada.
Mario Kart 8 will be available May 30, 2014 release.
