Mario Kart 8 passes 2 million units sold, Wii U sales up says Nintendo

It looks like Mario Kart 8 is a huge hit for Nintendo. They revealed at their investor meeting today in Japan that the game has sold over 2 million copies world wide. Previously we knew that it sold around 1.2 million copies in its first weekend.

That would put it around 800k globally since launch for most of June. Nintendo also says Wii U system sales are up as a whole on the heels due to MK8 but hasn’t provided a specific number or metric to measure the increase in today’s ongoing share holder meeting just yet.
