Splatoon Reely Nets One Million Sales
Nintendo has caught over one million sales with its tantalising new bait, Splatoon for the Wii U.
According to internal Nintendo figures, physical and digital sales have reached one million copies worldwide.
The breakdown of this one million sees more than 476,000 copies sold in the North America, more than 368,000 copies in Japan, more than 230,000 copies sold in Europe, and more than 20,000 copies sold in Australia and New Zealand.
“Since Splatoon launched,” said Tom Enoki, Nintendo Australia’s Managing Director, in a press release, “… it has been great to see so many players competing in the ink battles”.
Splatoon is also the first Wii U game of a new Nintendo IP to reach over one million sales on the Wii U.
The success of Splatoon is only going to get better from here, with the promise of new content being added to the base game for free, with numerous weapons and three stages already added. A major update will arrive in August to further expand on the available content, adding new multiplayer game modes.
Players who want to get more out of Splatoon with the Splatoon series of amiibo should be able to do so too, with the Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, and the Triple Pack exclusive Squid amiibo in ample stock in stores.
