Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Can Splatoon 2 Sell 5mil Lifetime........ In Japan Alone?? [YeS It Will] [Update: 3.78mil Ship+Digital]

Close but no cigar, Its basically impossible now to achieve

Splatoon 2 in Japan sold 378,340 in the whole of 2019
It would have to keep that number up until about 2025 to reach 5 million

Splatoon2 was at 3.8mil by end of 2019. Game is doing close to double sales compared to last year weekly. It’s nowhere near impossible m, especially when the floor is 4.5mil lifetime

Considering we just had our last Splatfest, I would not be suprised if Splatoon 3 gets announced next year TBH. That could cut the legs off of Splatoon 2, and considering how 2 was released at the start of this gen, it would not be far fetched to think a 3rd game could land on the same hardware.

That is the only scenario where I see this prediction not being at least close to being true.

I hope they don't release Splatoon 3 on switch, Splatoon 2 is still a good game. Also (maybe because of my lack of imagination) I have a hard time seeing any reason to release a sequel on the same platform since it's a MP game. Just keep resources for developing new guns, levels and game modes in the core game, if not free, release them a paid DLC if the want more revenue.



So Splatoon fest will continue to March 2021 and Splatoon 2 is up YoY by a good amount. Maybe it’ll be 4.5mil by years end (ship+digital)
