Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Falls from the U.S. Top 20 for the First Time in 6 Years

Mario Kart 8⁢ Deluxe⁢ (MK8D), Nintendo’s biggest racing​ game‍ for the Switch console, has long been ⁢a top⁤ seller in the United ⁢States, but it has now fallen from the U.S. Top 20 ⁣list ​for the ⁢first ⁣time in six ‍years. According to market research firm NPD, the‍ game fell out​ of the⁣ Top 20 ​for ​the first time since the Switch released in 2017.

The game’s sales ⁤had actually been improving in recent ⁤months, thanks to the popularity of the Nintendo Switch.⁣ It ​had been back ⁤in the ​U.S. Top ‌20 from October⁤ 2020 to February⁢ 2021, but then it suddenly dropped ‌out of the Top ⁢20⁤ again in the last two ‍months. The last time the game ⁤was‌ absent from the Top 20 ⁣list‌ was⁣ back in 2015, when it was released ‌for the ⁢Wii U.

The game’s recent sales drop can be attributed to a‍ variety of factors, including competition from newer ⁤games such as Animal ⁣Crossing: New Horizons and Super Mario ‍3D World⁢ + Bowser’s Fury. In addition, Mario​ Kart 8 Deluxe has now been on the market for ‍nearly five years, which may have led to a decline in sales. As ‍such, it is likely that the⁤ game⁣ will remain outside the ‍U.S. Top 20 in the near future.

Despite Mario ⁢Kart⁣ 8 Deluxe’s recent⁣ dip ​in sales, it remains one ⁣of the most ‍popular games ⁣on the Nintendo Switch. Over​ 38 million copies of the game have been sold since its release, making it the fifth-best selling game on the platform. In addition, the⁢ game is⁣ still remaining popular in other regions,‌ such as Europe and Japan. As such, ‌it is likely that Mario ‌Kart 8 Deluxe will continue​ to ‌be a smash success for Nintendo in the ​years⁢ to come.
