Only 3.77m which isn't that ridiculous. Actually if you count MHW and it's inevitable "Super Ultra Plus Edition" re-release together it will more than likely beat that. Less likely it can do it without a "Super Ultra Plus Edition", but it's not impossible by any means.

Wii Fit and Wii Fit+ are 6M+. Wii Sports and Resort are 7M+.

Has Splatoon on the Wii U sold more than Splatoon on the Switch?

No, Splatoon 2 sold over 2 millions in Japan only, and Splatoon sold 1,6 in Japan

Splatoon on Wii u actually did 2m with digital in japan. That was the leader for gen 8 home consoles. Mhw just trumped it .



It only needed four years to get there. Another example of how disappointing the PS4 has performed in Japan. When anything involving Wii U poses serious competition, it's safe to say that that isn't a good sign.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

MHW is four years old?

The PS4 launched four years ago.

Nobody looks back at other gens top selling games and says "but it took years to get there". That was a pretty bad attempt at downplaying the monumental success I must say.

 

The fact splatoon sold over 2m makes this impressive. None of you even gave it a chance pre launch.
