During Nintendo's 74th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders it has been revealed that Mario Kart 8 has shifted an impressive two million copies in the month it has been on sale.

In addition to this welcome news, it has also been stated that Wii U hardware sales are on the rise too — although this presumably refers to global sales instead of Japanese ones, as the numbers in that region have largely returned to their pre-Mario Kart 8 levels.

The news was first leaked by attendees of the meeting, only to be solidly confirmed later on by Genyo Takeda, speaking on behalf of Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, who has not been able to attend for health reasons.
