Splatoon sells through over 3.5 million copies
Colorful shooter from Nintendo reaches sales milestone
Nintendo has announced that its shooter Splatoon for Wii U has sold through over one million units across Europe to date, bringing its total worldwide sales to over 3.5 million units.
“Reaching one million sales for Splatoon in Europe is testament to the universal appeal of this brand new kind of shooter, which everyone can play and enjoy,” said Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata.
New weapons, multiplayer maps, game modes and much more have all been added to the game since launch – and all for free. The game now boasts a total of 16 maps and 74 main weapons to wield. These updates will continue in the coming months, with a new software update available this week with adjustments to matchmaking and Splatfests, while April will introduce new combinations of existing weapons called “Sheldon’s Picks”, encouraging players to try out new tactics to succeed.
Splatoon was released exclusively on the Wii U last year.
