The Mario Kart series has seen well over 100 million in sales since the SNES original in 1992. The latest release, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Nintendo Switch has sold 7.3 million copies since its May 2017 release.
At the same meeting Nintendo also confirmed the long-reported rumour that it’s working with Illumination Entertainment (the company that made Minions) on a Mario feature film.
Here’s hoping balloon battle returns.
