NPD: Splatoon Was The Fifth Best-Selling Game In The US During June

It would seem as though Splatoon has performed extremely well in the United States, Europe and Japan. The ink based shooter held its own in the United States during June and was the fifth best-selling video game of the month. As expected it was Batman: Arkham Knight for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One which was the best-selling title. You’ll find a statement from Nintendo underneath the top ten chart, below.

  1. Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  2. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited (Xbox One, PS4, PC)
  3. Lego: Jurassic World (360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3, 3DS, Wii U, Vita)
  4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  5. Splatoon (Wii U)
  6. Minecraft (360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4)
  7. Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
  8. Mortal Kombat X (PS4, Xbox One)
  9. NBA 2K15 (360, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, PC)
  10. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)

“Through the first six months of 2015, combined sales of Wii U and Nintendo 3DS systems have increased by more than 20 percent over the same time frame in 2014. Much of this growth can be attributed to Nintendo 3DS and the new momentum created by the launch of New Nintendo 3DS XL on Feb. 13. So far this year, sales of Nintendo 3DS hardware have increased by more than 40 percent over sales at the same point last year.”

  1. Well deserved, Splatoon! It’s very impressive that it made the top 5, especially when nearly everything else on this list, excluding Mortal Kombat, is available on at LEAST 3 platforms. Splatoon did amazing and it’s only on Wii U. Let’s hope it keeps doing well.

    1. Mortal Kombat IS on 3 consoles though- I have it on the PC. I suppose they accidentally left it out or something :o

      1. Is the only exclusive in the top 10 for 2 months while other exclusive barely reach the 9th one.

  2. Wii U will be remembered for Splatoon.

    Great success. Too bad games like Splatoon weren’t regularly released for the console. If so, the Wii U would have been flying off the shelves.

  3. MNN didn’t post US eshop releases!

    It’s ok. They did it when I requested it, and for the whole time I was interested in Nintendo. I’m kinda disengaging, and although this will always be my go-to site for Nintendo news, it’s not as big a deal for me anymore.

    I love this site and hope the new set of followers have as much fun as I did!! :D

  4. Splatoon is the “SHIIZ-NICK!” lol
    & will be among the nominees for game of the year!!!

    ……we already know Arkham Knight is gonna win it!! So back off Batman fanboys!!!
