One-Two Punch!


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the much anticipated Nintendo Switch port of the Wii U best-selling title has just released and on its first day available it has already become the best selling videogame of 2017 so far in the Amazon store.


With The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild charting right behind it, it illustrates the one-two punch that Nintendo was banking on when it decided to pace releases of games and have at least one big title available on each month.

It is not surprise that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is already charting ahead of Breath of the Wild, a game that almost had a 1:1 attach rate on each console sold, because historically the Mario Kart games have sold much better than Zelda.

Next month will see the release of Tumbleseed (May 2nd), NBA Playgrounds (May 9th), Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition (May 11th), Disgaea 5 Complete (May 23rd), and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers (May 26th) giving Switch owners a healthy dose of games next month before the summer.
