Nintendo announces Splatoon has sold an amazing 1 million copies.
So, the Wii U is dead – but Nintendo’s newest IP, Splatoon, has exploded and has now sold over 1 million copies.
In the Americas alone, over 476,000 physical and digital copies were sold, with Japan, Europe, and a few other countries selling 618,000 copies.
Nintendo of America’s Reggie Fils-Aime had this to say about Nintendo’s splatty shooter:
This milestone puts us in a nice position as we prepare to launch 11 more exclusive Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games before the end of the year, plus amiibo, digital offerings and games from our third-party partners.
Splatoon’s sales give Nintendo a little momentum after one of their worst showings at E3 in quite a while. But – as Nintendo often does – it looks like they’ll milk Splatoon for everything they can. This certainly isn’t the last you’ll see of Splatoon.
