If it's selling so well right now, the Splatoon 2 release will be absolutely crazy!

SW-6609-1371-3414

can they not get 100k unit a week produced? when are they ever going to keep up demand?

now till end of August looks like crazy... (Arms is selling better than expected and Splatoon2 will have legs). We have no idea if Mario Rabbid RPG will take off but if it does... there will be no time to produce more units before Mario Odyssey is out.

And then it is Xmas...

Crazy!

They are probably already stocking units for that week and the next.



Switch is a beast

At the COMG thread, apparently it got more points than the first Splatoon FW at COMG stores. No numbers yet and who knows how that will translate to overall sales.

Was Splatoon an initial hit, or became a huge hit like a month latter due to word of mouth, ect?
