It's a year 1 title and will sell for years. Anything under 5m and I'll be dissapointed.

Im glad your optimistic like me but dont you find that silly? Your basically saying its the biggest ip in japan and by quite alot. Only game to hit 5mil in the past 5-6 years was AC.

 

Will DQ even hit 5mil with 3skus? Or any future pokemon? See now 👀

Uhumm, It's possible. Not easy, but I can see it doing it by virtue of being released early. I bet it will have AC legs and start big (at least 600k).



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

If it does it would absolutely epic, it would be already epic selling 2 milions.



No chance whatsoever.

It is launching on a console with an install base of less than 5 million. Even if it sells very well for the rest of this year, and reasonably well through 2018, and still sells okay through 2019, *and* the Switch continues to sell very well, Splatoon 2 *may* get to 10mm worldwide. That gives you 2-3mm in Japan. Even that requires a whole lot of factors to fall in the game.s favor.



Definitely possible as long as the sequel isn't announced early. It otherwise might struggle to reach 3M.

I still highly doubt that, and with the current stock problems, it wouldn't happen any time soon anyways.

I could see 3 to 4 million. I think coming out soon after launch when there's only 1 million Switch's in Japan is gonna hurt it, as naturally people get more excited to buy a game when it comes out than to get a game that came out a couple years ago. Should sell at the very least 3 million though. I'm hoping to see 200k japan first week.

Dont worry itll sell 200k within the first day. It should sell anywhere between 450k-900k fw. Where exactly is any1 guess



You know what? Sure, why not? I don't think it'll maintain the same ridiculous lifetime 50% attach rate the original had on the Wii U but I think the favorable conditions surrounding the Switch and the Splatoon franchise are going to allow it to reach that 5m mark in Japan -- especially when the sequel is going to be on a console that's going to offer portability and the ability to have meetups with friends; two things that helped Monster Hunter blow up in Japan.



No. The IP still needs to grow, but I think it could reach between 2.5M and 3M :)
