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

3m is really high, but easily will pass 1m, I say 1-2m.



Around the Network

I just finished playing the demo ... it's decent fun but no way is it sniffing those types of sales.



I'm predicting over 2 million. But there are some things that need to happen. Nintendo needs to make a Splatoon bundle. And not just with the game, but they gotta toss in an amiibo too. They also need to advertise the hell out of it and consider a buy one get one deal like they did with MK8. If they do this, then I think that 2+ million wouldn't be a issue.



it should sell around 700k-1m LT. It is hard to imagining it in the same league as Zelda or other established IPs.

Nope, doubt it will even sell a million honestly. I'm expecting W101 numbers...

Well, maybe 3m is too much, but the W101 numbers are too low. According to COMG, Splatoon have more than 20 point. usually 1 point = 1,000 unit.

Splatoon is gonna to have more than 50 point before released, that mean +50,000 sold, maybe even more.

W101 first week sold just 5k...

 

I expect 1,500,000 lifetime for Splatoon, as well it can sell under 1m, but the W101 numbers seriusly no way.


It will probably beat w101, but not by much.  right now vgc lists w101 as over 300k so with digital it is probably 400-500k?  I'm guessing splatoon sells 400-500k physically and adds another 100-200k digitally.  It really isn't that unreasonable of a prediction like some people are making it out to be...

Did you play Splatoon Demo?

If you played you would certainly know how good game is and how much potential for sale have.

Almost every Nintendo Wii U game is above or around 1m. Splatoon is 1+m seller, it great game and seems Nintendo is really pushing it.

lol, you wanna bet?



1-2m is my range. It would have to be heavily bundled to reach 3m, in my opinion. (Or the Wii U would really have to take off in general)

If Nintendo just continuisly bundles rare Amiibos with the game then sure.
