splatoon won't reach the 3 million mark

mario can reach it and surpass it. if it will or not only after fw sales numbers are in can we do a educated guess.

It was at 1.62m by the end of June, and since then has sold an additional 200k in Japan alone.

Are you sure about that?

i was judging by the vgchartz numbers and they say 1.13 by the and of june. can you link me that info.

if those numbers are right... yes, i might be wrong but the 5 millions have the same chance of happening has my first predition based on wrong numbers.

Your just Splatoon crazy! I can't trust your prediction. ;p

Splatoon will sell 5 million lifetime.

Mario Maker should sell 3 million or so.

Splatoon is currently around 2m and game have very long legs, easily can be around 3m at end of year.

3D World and NSMBU have already sold tons (4.3 and 4.84 million by the end of June). I'm not saying Splatoon can't sell tons either because obviously it will (3.75-5 million depending on any crazy extremes that may happen), but if marketed the right way and bundled SMM should outsell at least one of them, if not be right on the tails of one.  

 

I just can't see SMM doing any less than 5 million thinking about the other Mario numbers. I know it's different since there's no world map, but there's endless levels to be played and created. Realistically this should sell more than the other 2 games, but since it started later I'm not sure if it will, though I think it could :O

*chartz*


Great post!

Like i said, Mario Maker can even sell 5/6 million for what i think, but only with those crazy sales can beat Splatoon!

see reply above.

the game is not out that long, how do you know it has "very long legs" ? not saying it will not have, just want to know how did you come to that conclusion...

After 12 weeks of Japan sales, Splatoon is selling better than Mario Kart. 3 months are not that long for understand if the legs are strong?

Definitely agreed though.

 

Mario Maker has such huge potential, but since it is a first for this type of Mario game we can't say for sure if the sales would match the other games.

Personally I think it should sell better just because of what it is, but only time will tell!

sounds like they are giving a total sales numbers and i was judging the prediction on retail copies alone.
yeah, i have to rephrase my prediction and say, i think it will land between 3.5 and 4.

Still mario maker can surpass that.

I think SMM would have a better sales here in NA and Europe compared to Splatoon. Since it is a Mario game, an editor one. I believe it can really sell that much and surpass Splatoon. I know Splatoon has strong legs, but SMM is something you can't just say it won't have that strong legs as well.

There are also some information that enemies or additional content that they haven't seen in SMW level that is part of SMM, I don't know if it would be a DLC or if it is just not part of SMM. Can't wait for SMM and see how big is the content. No Koopalings as of the moment right?

excuse me... he said "very long legs" not "long legs" not just "legs", he said "very long legs" i want to know why, and judging it just by its 3 first months is not a good reason imo.
