Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Can Splatoon Go on and Sell 3mil Lifetime? (Shipped+Digital) [Update: 2.42mil LTD, 80% There]

There are five 3 million sellers on the Wii U and all five are either Mario games or Nintendoland. So; no, 3 million is way too high an expectation. 1 million should be considered a raging success imo.

Splatoon did to shooters what Mario Kart did to racing games and Smash Bros. for fighting games.

Only Nintendo can do this.

SSB aint a Mario game, and nobody buys it for Mario :p

That said yes i agree, 1mil would be a raging success, and though i think 3mil is a far reach, i believe if any game could get close to that figure on wiiu, it be this. 

I do believe This game is being underestimated (in sales), Hopefully its over 1mil before Holidays and its over 1.5mil By end of 2015, but i'll settle with 1mil at the same time...



Very very unlikely.

This game better have a big single player or I think its gonna get slammed in reviews for not having enough content and Nintendo probably isn't gonna drop the price, so if it gets that stigma of not having enough content and it stays $60 its gonna cut its legs.



Hell yes! :D

That attitude is exactly what im looking at. I dont think Splatoon will be the next MK8+SSB in terms of major success, but i think it can be another franchise that needs to be made once per generation because it fits in the same categories as SSB+MK. And that is must haves with some of the best multiplayer fun on a nintendo system!!!

Zelda? 



If Splatoon is not a big system seller now, don´t worry, it will be the next time, for sure.
