Hitting a target that not even Pokemon, Dragon Quest, Animal Crossing, or Monster Hunter can hit. There is no way on earth that this happens.

Animal Crossing has sold more than 5m in Japan...

 

You may not know that it has sold 700k digitally there at least as of 2013...

Animal Crossing went from 0.99 million on GameCube to 5.33 million on DS, and like you said, sold over 5 million copies on DS too.

So it's certainly not impossible for Splatoon to do the same thing. :D
