Splatoon 2 has sold through 670,955 (physical) units in its first 3 days in Japan according to Famitsu. This doesn’t include eShop sales. This sales performance makes it the highest selling Switch game in Japan so far and (obviously) the highest selling debut sales of a Switch game in Japan.

102K Nintendo Switches were also sold in Japan in this period. Switch installbase in Japan is now 1,205,087.

The first Splatoon’s Japanese debut sales were 156,610 (physical) on a Wii U install base of 2,333,622. Splatoon 1 then went on to sell 1,512,789 units (according to Famitsu) not counting eShop sales.

Update, Media Create's numbers:

Huh, switch sold better than expected. Those Splatoon Numbers are still insane though.

Splatoon 2 might be the best selling exclusive game for the year in Japan, atleast.

The only competition is really Dragon Quest and that's on two systems that are in better health. It's possible, but I do think the title is going to DQ. I don't think there's much doubt that Splatoon is the most popular shooter in Japan right now though which is impressive in its own right.

DQ isn't exclusive but Splatoon 2 could probably beat those individual games by year's end.

Yeah, I was meaning exclusive on one system. I know DQXI will definitely sell more than Splatoon 2.

DQ wouldn't count in that scenario since it isn't an exclusive release to any one platform. DQXI across 3DS and PS4 will top Splatoon 2 in sales, but no exclusive title for any one platform will top Splatoon 2.

I was really bullish on the first Splatoon's chances back when large portions of GAF was sure it would be a failure, but I'm still amazed at how much the series managed to capture the cultural zeitgeist in Japan

Lol it already outsold BotW and MK8DX. That's crazy and kind of sad for BotW. I don't know why the Japanese don't like Zelda more. :(

Pokemon will probably beat it, unless USUM really don't introduce anything interesting compared to SM.

My Japanese friend has been trying to get a Switch for over a month now for Monster Hunter, without luck. She was in one of those crazy lines this morning, and got unlucky in the lottery.

People are thirsty for Splatoon 2 now, and Monster Hunter XX for Switch comes out in less than a month...

Hopefully Nintendo can ramp up production, or blood is gonna spill next month lol.

Ffxv? Pretty sure its numbers were slightly higher than splatoon.

Also didn't stealth on twitter say it had 800k pre orders in japan like a month ago?
Did people cancel on them or something?

Also dq 11 might even outsell it individually at least in the first week... But who knows.
