Japan: Mario Kart Wii off to a good start, sells 594k in one week

Mario Kart Wii

It’s not nearly the launch that Super Smash Bros. Brawl enjoyed, but Mario Kart Wii, at least in Japan, is enjoying brisk sales after a week on the market.

Media Create reports the kooky racing title pushed 594,000 units in Japan since its launch one week ago. It currently sits in the number one software sales spot overseas. Smash Bros Brawl, on the other hand, sold about 874,000 copies in one day, and 1.4 million in its first week.

Regardless, Nintendo has another first party IP hit on its hands. Kudos to them.
