Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Splatoon 2 Outsells Original!! :D

Just checked the VGChartz numbers of Splatoon 2 compared to the original Splatoon. It's 4.70 million units for the first game vs. 4.71 million for the sequel.

It's already outsold the original in less than a year! :D

Soon we might even be able to add Mario Kart 8 DX to Switch games that outsold their Wii U versions too.

The road to 5M is being paved (6M would be great too !)

Awesome.



Ten million by the end of the lifespam is becoming more and more plausible.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Nice!

I guess the sales could increase with the release of the octo dlc. Hope this won't be the last one.

Reached PC master race level.

The success of the Switch really allowed the sales of this game to thrive, compared to the original which was tied to the original.

You mean last Splatoon 2 DLC, or last Switch game to outsell the Wii U original?



I'm thinking 10 million lifetime as long a Splatoon 3 doesn't come out anytime soon.



Well, Mario Kart 7 sold 14 million units on a system that had 75 million lifetime total. Mario Kart 8 sold 7.5 million on a system that had 14 million lifetime total. Then we have to factor in that the 3DS had a low attach rate, due to people upgrading their systems. Splatoon did about 4 million on a system that sold 14 million lifetime. So, even if the Switch does poorly in the next few years only selling 75 million lifetime, we should expect 10+ million sales of Splatoon 2.

IMO the 5+ million selling games on the Switch will be...

BotW
Odyssey
Splatoon 2
Smash
Animal Crossing Switch
Poke'mon Switch
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
BotW 2 (They have to make this. They just do!)
