Released last Friday in the US, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has reached record sales with 459,000 copies sold, which is more than Mario Kart Wii and its 433,900 copies.

Nintendo added in its press release that 45% of Switch owners purchased the title, which would indicate it's the second most important game for the console behind The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Do you think the game's appeal lies in its multiplayer aspect?
