Splatoon global sales pass 1 million

Nintendo’s first shooter repays the company’s investment in experimentation.

Splatoon has shifted over 1 million units worldwide, Nintendo of Japan has announced.

We expected something of the kind after the Wii U exclusive launched charted in the May NPDs despite releasing at the very end of the tracked period. That’s a hell of a feat for an exclusive, let alone a brand new IP.

You could even say these sales are inkredible but you would then go to jail for making a very tired pun.

我々イカ研究所の研究成果がこれだけ多くの人々に受け入れられたということか……なんか涙が出てきた。
