If the Switch becomes the biggest console since the PS2 and Splatoon 2 becomes the national eSport? Maybe.



Love and tolerate.

If it's bundled I can see it selling that. Splatoon on the WiiU was one of the biggest surprises last gen. Too bad I never tried it,  I traded it in when buying the Splatoon bundle before playing it. I'll probably pick up Splatoon 2 on release seen as I finally have a switch.



That would mean it would have to outsell the worldwide sales of the first game, and more than triple its japanese sales. I find it quite unlike that Splatoon 2 can achieve those kinds of sales in Japan. Not to mention that shooters have never been a huge genre in Japan in general. It'll probably outsell the first game, but over 5 million is stretching it way too far.

No. Splatoon can sell 5-6 million WW lifetime. 1 Million in japan and heck maybe even 1.5 mill in Japan. It's not going to outsell or come close to Dragon Quest or Monster Hunter numbers tho.



There's being bold, and then... there's just being crazy.

maybe 2M lifetime in Japan but 5M ?! .... no way.

The first one made over 1.5M on the Wii U, so 2M seems way too low to me. With the Switch selling so well, 4 Million seem more reasonable to me, and if Splatoon 2 also gets tons of content after release like the first one, then even more is possible

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...

I hope you will turn out to be right, and the replies in this thread will be as ridiculous as these in your first Splatoon thread. However, I really doubt it. 3 million is certainly possible though, maybe even 4 million.
