Adding to this finical boon for Nintendo, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was also the top selling video game for the month of April as well with 460,000 physical units sold, factoring in digital sales, that's more than 550,000 units. The most impressive part is, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launched on April 28th and these figures only account for two days worth of sales.
