Honestly, I'm surprised at the lack of bundle estimation. I'd be quite surprised if Splatoon wasn't bundled for the holidays. Considering there's a MK8 bundle, you'd expect a Splatoon one coming soon.

I imagine they'll give the SMM bundle some breathing room for a bit (maybe September+October) and then start bundling Splatoon in November as they did with MK8 last year. Hopefully this time with some added value though.

I can understand saying no.

But Final Fantasy, the king of IP? I can think of at least 8 that are above it in Japan...

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!

no....FF XV will sell a million+ it's first week alonel even it it follow FF XIII's pattern(which I think it won't will be a tad bit higher) it will outsell Splatoon handily,

I personally don't see FFXV selling all that much more than 1.5m. I'd be impressed if it sold more than 1m first week. But it should have better legs than FFXIII since I'm expecting it to be better received (and thus not as many copies available on the used market) but that's just an assumption.



well, Splatoon is really going against all the usual sales patterns so far, especially for a shooter so I don't think i should bet against it. I've been waiting for the usual Japan sales pattern to settle in over time, but it's just not. This week the sales went up significantly for what reason i don't know. I can't seem to predict it because of this so i won't. I will say however that games can drop out of favor in Japan rather quickly, that doesn't mean it will.



currently playing: Skyward Sword, Mario Sunshine, Xenoblade Chronicles X

Final Fantasy XV will be the biggest game for PS4 in Japan and will easily beat Splatoon.
Final Fantasy will sell 1.5M+.
Splatoon will sell 1.2M maximum.


That "maximum"!!!! :0

This thread is Gold, not even for the opening xD



So 905k thus far sold. Unfortunately the user base holds it back. 1mil is a lock by end of year. Hopefully 1.2mil will be shipped+digital
