Splatoon 3 Splash with over 10 million sales in three months
Nintendo has reported that Splatoon 3 has sold over 10 million units through December 31, 2022. The company shared the result in its latest financial report, which covers the third quarter of the fiscal year ending March 2023.
We knew Splatoon 3 would sell well given that it broke sales records when it was released in September 2022, especially in Japan, but the game has already sold 10.13 million units. For comparison, in June 2020, almost three years after the game’s release, Splatoon 2 reached 10.71 million units, and as of March 2022, the second game had sold 13.30 million units.
We will almost certainly see some deep cuts here, and we expect Splatoon 3 to overtake Splatoon 2 by the next quarter. But we must see! There are many more Splatfests in the tank, and one of them will be very soon.
