Splatoon 2 hits 2 million units sold in Japan, first console title to do so in 8 years

Nintendo just keeps hitting milestone after milestone with the Switch. As of this week's software sales data, Splatoon 2 has managed to hit 2 million units sold! The retail version of the game moved over 1.8 million units, and digital sales bring the title up to 2 million sold. Japan absolutely loves their Splatoon!

Here's a bit of staggering info for you. Splatoon 2 is the first console game in Japan to hit 2 million sold in 8 years. The last title to do so was Wii Party back in 2010!

Certainly this means the first Nintendo console game in 8 years? Not consoles in general... right? That’s hard to fathom.

Yeah. That title confused me. Has a PS4 game ever sold more than 2 million?!

Not in Japan. And they only have 2 games that sold 1 million. MH will most probably become the 3rd, and it's the only one considered to have a chance to get to 2 Million.

Well worth it. Splatoon 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 are tied as my 2017 GOTY.

Best selling game on ps4 in Japan at the moment is Dragon quest with 1.3million so this statement is definitely correct! Amazing!
