Mario Kart 8 pre-orders boost the game to #1 on Amazon Japan

Recommended Posts

Hopefully this is indicative of good things to come as far as the Wii U goes. Apparently, buzz about Mario Kart 8 in Japan is extremely strong at the moment, with pre-orders for the game pushing it to #1 on the best-selling video games list on Amazon Japan at the moment.

 

Mario Kart Wii was one of the best-selling games on Wii, so let's hope that 8 can be the system seller that Nintendo needs it to be right now. :)

Too bad this would never happen in the US. I guess with the PS4 not being out and Japan not caring about Xbox the Wii U is naturally going to come out on top being the only current-gen system they have, but it's still good news anyway.

I can promise you, Nintendo, that by the end of this year I'll have a Wii U... somehow...

Yeah, neither do I at my job. It's a damn shame, it is.

 

With that said, the recent MK8 trailer has me hyped. I will pre-order it as soon as possible.

A place called Hastings. I get discounts on games (about as much as tax), but not on consoles. Well, actually, I do on used consoles, which are actually pretty big ones.
