This just in, Nintendo has announced that its all new IP, Splatoon, has sold over 1 million copies worldwide. This is a combination of digital and physical sales for the title. Nintendo has to be thrilled with this number as it is a brand new franchise for them and the game has only been out for a month. Here is what Reggie Fils-Aime had to say regarding the title:
“Ever since Splatoon launched on May 29 in the United States, we’ve seen thousands of people go online to have fun in this colorful, chaotic competition,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “This milestone puts us in a nice position as we prepare to launch 11 more exclusive Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games before the end of the year, plus amiibo, digital offerings and games from our third-party partners.”
Impressive numbers Nintendo. Let’s see how this one does over the summer.
