Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Bold Prediction: Splatoon 2 Will Outsell Splatoon This Year Alone


Will it?

Yes! 81 47.93%
No! 38 22.49%
Maybe 50 29.59%

The only thing that'd keep it from doing so is if Nintendo can't ship enough Switches, but otherwise, easily!

Around the Network

It's certainly possible if they sell 15 million Switches in 2017.

Maybe. That is my answer.

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Unlikely, as the install base is too small.

I mean... That would mean an attach rate of at least 35%....

Around the Network

Possible, but unlikely, not just due to install base, but also competition with other best sellers, plus all the other minor sellers, for the money Switch gamers are willing to spend this year. It will probably outsell it during 2018., while Zelda and MK8 have more chances to outsell it this year, having started earlier and at the highest of launch and post-launch hype.

Overall Ltd? Yes. In first 6 months? Very hard to do. I'd say Holiday 2018.

Hmm......a bundle could pull it off, ask me after I see the Japanese numbers. If they look like Monster H unter ones it is possible

The Democratic Nintendo that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Nope, it's too much, Splatoon's legs were bosted by the lack of games on Wii U, after 2/3 months Fire Emblem, Mario+Rabbids and possibily another title will be out for the Switch, it will sell more on the long run though !

I think it's manageable for Splatoon 2. I'd say it gonna sell around 4.5 Mil. So they'd be neck in neck
