Driving sales ever onward

Mario Kart Wii has sold a whopping 31.9 million units around the world.

The Wii racer has shifted 4.9m copies worldwide since April, standing as the biggest-selling Wii game of the financial year so far.

It's not the only Mario game hitting milestones: perhaps due to its inclusion in the Nintendo Selects range, Super Mario Galaxy has racked up 10.4m worldwide sales since 2007, while New Super Mario Bros. Wii sits on 25.4m since late 2009.

It's not all Mario though: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the third top-seller of the financial year so far, with 3.42m global sales since November.
