Game Overview

Splatoon is a multiplayer third person shooter being developed and due to be published by Nintendo exclusively for the Wii U in 2015. There can be up to eight players in a match, split between two teams of four. The game's title is a combination of the words, "splat" and "platoon."

In Splatoon, you can challenge your friends in chaotic four-on-four matches, in which the goal is to get your ink on as many places as possible and claim your turf, all while strategically submerging yourself in your team's colors and blasting your enemies.

If you said it'd reach 4m back before
it's release, you'd be labelled

Yay for 2m!

I'd say 4m is a really
safe bet to make at this point, which is
crazy. It's selling very well in all
regions, especially NA and Japan.
Wouldn't be surprised to see it break
3m by year's end.

I agree... 4m is a safe bet and 5m is
completely possible, but not "safe".
Anyway, AMAZING sales, that's a new IP
they'll probably carry on to their next
systems like Mario Kart or Smash Bros.
Imagine how much Splatoon 2 would sell
if well made and released on a sucessful
system with a good install base? Would
probably do 7-10m...
