Japan: Splatoon 2 Has Sold 670,955 Physical Copies In The First 3 Days Of The Game’s Release

Splatoon 2 has been out for a few days now, and sales are now beginning to come out on how well it has done. In Japan, Famitsu is reporting that the game has sold 670,955 physical copies in just the first few days of the game’s release. This means that Splatoon 2 has had the biggest debut for a Switch title and even Japan’s highest selling Switch title to date. To compare, Splatoon 1 sold only 156,610 physical copies in Japan within the first four days of its release on the Wii U.

  1. Though I can’t truly judge it (since I didn’t play the original for more than a few minutes), I’m always left scratching my head in confusion over the popularity of Splatoon. In much the same way that super soaker water guns make me feel in real life. Does this game have a better single player mode, or is it still just centered on multi-player?


    1. The multiplayer is the main meat of the package. The reason it is so popular is because it is oh-so-satisfying to play. It controls well, has great pacing, and is rather addicting. I wondered the same things as you, but then I bought Splatoon 2, and I understood its popularity almost instantly.
