Mario Kart 8 Is Now The Number One Game On Amazon Japan

Nintendo’s long-awaited Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U has leapt to the number one position on Amazon Japan following the Nintendo Direct on Thursday. Nintendo’s latest kart racer is due for release in North America, Japan, and Europe, on May 30th.

Thanks, Retrogaminglord

      1. Yeah, I see that! I was a bit worried when Super Mario 3D World failed to cut the mustard for the Wii U’s sales, and was resultingly skeptical about the talk of Mario Kart 8 being the system seller, but maybe I was wrong! Maybe Mario Kart 8 really will be the one to do the trick!

    1. While i like Xbox systems i have to say that Titanfall gets too much attention i dont believe it´ll be good, Killer Instinct on the other hand should get more attention since its kinda good XboxOne exclusive.

    2. Except titanfall will just be another shitty fps game with no real innovation besides mech suits. No story or real game, its only a multiplayer game. Too bad X will blow titanfall out of the water, when its FINALLY released in both game play and multiplayer.

    3. In Japan? nope Titanfall is aimed at westerners. I woukd not be surprised if that is true in the US. Actually I would be pleasantly surprised if Mario Kart is the #1 pre ordered game in the US at all

      3. No, I didn’t think I was cool. I, as I said, was politely advising… And you responded incredibly childishly… Considering your initial comment about how childish somebody was being, I now think you’re actually just as much of a child as the chap you were scorning in the first place.

        I wasn’t condescending, I wasn’t disrespectful, but you respond by telling me to shut the fuck up, then continuing to be disrespectful… You should consider your own output before criticising others.

        3D World was just a HD rehash of the huge popular Mario Land on the 3DS and then you wonder why NO ONE bought the game apart from Wii U owners?
        The direct was ALL about the 3DS which was pathetic, the 3DS is NOT struggling and is doing fine, the Wii U is the one with the huge problem……so Nintendo decide to make people want a Wii U by showing heaps of 3DS stuff?
        2013 was EXACTLY the same 3DS got awesome after awesome game and the Wii U got crap after crap…….2014 will follow suit!!

      5. So you’re saying popularity determines the quality of a game… so Sonic 06 is an extremely good game then. Cause it sold well. And Nintendo actually gives a new, high quality experience for every game they make. Wasting $60 on something over and over again is a great example of the Call of Duty franchise; which I despise. And have you even PLAYED 3D World or 3D Land? They feature similar gameplay, but 3D World has better levels (imo) and new powerups. And the Direct actually gave more important and interesting info on upcoming Wii U games. The 3DS had important info, just not as much. And 2013 had some amazing Wii U games. Pikmin 3, Wind Waker HD, Wii Party U, Super Mario 3D World, etc.
        So shut your mouth because you don’t know shit.

      13. Perhaps that is because people like you are too retarded to give the Wii U a chance.

        The Wii U has incredible potential and originality. It features a game pad with a large, easy-to-see touchscreen that allows for easy inventory access and unique features that many other systems lack.

        Think about the Wii. Everyone dissed on it and stated how “terrble” the graphics were and how it would fail quickly. Then, guess what happened? It DIDN’T fail, and instead undermined the shit out of the Xbox 360 and PS3 by using its so-called “gimmicky features” to bring a whole new depth and immersion into gaming that all the other knock-off motion-sensing controls for other consoles couldn’t beat.

        3D World was better than Knack. Knack was a crappy, generic title that failed to be original, and played it much “safer” than nintendo’s exclusives.

        Try to think before you type, and perhaps go read a damn dictionary while you’re at it, Sherlock.

    1. More characters, more tracks, HD, new racing mechanics (like zero gravity racing upside down and on walls), new aesthetic changes (characters hold items before they throw them), the online “will” be 1080p at 60 fps (confirmed by the team working on MK8), and then there are many things we still don’t know.

      Could there be new modes? (probably) Are there even more characters, items? (probably) Are there any other secrets? (probably)

      The game is lookin mighty fine if you ask me. Also, sequels don’t have to be “different” from their predecessors or even “innovative” to it’s own franchise. Just as long as it’s fun…

        Sorry your Forza/ Need for Speed scrapes up the leftovers from the bottom of the barrel! Mario Kart gets better scores and more sales than any of those games every day of the week, which proves it’s superiority.

    2. improved physics engine, better online, different balance(in karts and items). improved, character animations, lots of little touches, new tracks, new retro track, gravity, new karts, new items( most likely will be shown), music,customization ect lots of things that changed. The main gameplay won’t change its the same since the first mario kart. This series comes only once per console, so it will awhile before 9, or 10. Pokemon has the same thing going for it, they just add new balance, and new pokemon to rethink stuff.
