has nothing to do with old and new. Splatoon sold more than 95% of old franchises this generation in japan so far.
That said i really believe if it weren't for the horrible userbase, splatoon would easily be over 2mil by now. Splatoon has potential to be > FF in japan imo. Though FFXV will sell more
Same could be said for Final Fantasy really. FF has the potential to be much bigger than it currently is in Japan.
Not doubting that, but i think Splatoon on lets say 3DS same situation as It is now would be around or over 2.5mil seller. And with its legs become one of the biggest games in sales in japan.
FF being bigger than it currently is now i agree with, but do you think FFXV is going to be one of the best selling and if so how much are we expecting?
Dont forget im not disagreeing with you but i think many dont realize Splatoon's true potential. The Userbase is the only thing holding splatoon back!
