Did you know the Splatoon series has done so well that it’s sold over 10 million copies of games in under 3 years?
According to Nintendo’s official list of top sellers, as of March 31, 2018, Splatoon moved 4.93 million copies on Wii U, while Splatoon 2 has sold 6.02 million pieces on Switch. This brings the franchise total to 10.95 million copies worldwide.
It’s a pretty impressive feat for a relatively young and new IP to sell 10.95 million units in its first 3 years of release. This proves Nintendo’s approach in creating new game ideas and IP can pay off handsomely.
