Nintendo announced Splatoon 3 topped 3.45 copies sold within three days of its release.
The new sales milestone was reached within the first 3 days of its release and includes both retail and digital sales. This is now the highest recorded number of sales for a Switch game within its first three days.
Splatoon 3 just launched on September 9, 2022 for Nintendo Switch. Expect our thorough review for the game shortly.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
In the Splatoon series of action-shooting games, players play as Inklings — squid characters that can also take on a humanoid form. Nintendo launched the Splatoon game for the Wii U system in May 2015, and the Splatoon 2 game for Nintendo Switch in July 2017.
Splatoon 3 is the latest game in the Splatoon series, in which players face off against each other in two teams of four players, claiming territory by covering it in ink in Turf War battles. Building on the series’ foundation, Splatoon 3 adds new weapons, special weapons, and action to the game. In Splatsville, a chaotic city crowded with various elements, players can enjoy a large variety of battles: not only Turf War battles, but also the Story Mode in which players can battle and discover a mysterious place called Alterna on their own; and Salmon Run, where up to four players can work together and fend off powerful bosses. In addition, Nintendo will add more weapons and stages through updates for two years after launch, and hold events such as Splatfests, where players split into three teams to claim turf and overall victory. Players can connect with others around the globe online*, as well as play together locally, each with their own Nintendo Switch system.
