Nintendo placed big hopes on Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U, since the company did not reach predicted numbers on the consoles sales in 2013. Mario Kart 8 is available as a stand-alone product and a Wii U deluxe bundle. Over the opening weekend, the game hit 1.2 million units sold.
The amount of games sold makes Mario Kart 8 the fastest-selling game for the Wii U to date. The game released to raving reviews and is one of the few Wii U games to receive a Metacritic score of at least 85. The game currently has a metascore of 88 and a 9.3 user score.
