Indeed the percentage of Wii U owners that have purchased Mario Kart 8 clocks in at an amazing 60%. Mario Kart 8 launched in 2014 and, as you can imagine from the statistics above, is the biggest seller for Nintendo's Wii U console. The racer received critical acclaim and is sitting on a Metacritic score currently of 88.
