Mario Kart 8's strong performance of 2.82 million copies sold in its first month, along with a surge in Wii U hardware sales, was not enough to keep Nintendo out of the red for the latest quarter. The company posted a $97 million loss for the three-month period ended June 30, it was announced this week.
Mario Kart 8 may be off to a hot start, but it is nowhere near Mario Kart Wii, which has sold more than 35 million copies to date. Of course, that game has been available for years, while Mario Kart 8 is still very new. For more on Mario Kart 8, check out GameSpot's review.
