Nintendo released some fairly impressive sales numbers yesterday.

Splatoon has sold 600,000 copies in the U.S., could be good news for Nintendo

Nintendo released some fairly impressive sales numbers yesterday.

According to Nintendo’s recent NPD report, the squid-ink shooter Splatoon has sold 600,000 copies in the U.S.

While this might not sound like a whole lot, it’s actually a great number for a new franchise opening on a console with abysmal sales figures.

Critically well-received, Splatoon now has some financial success that could push Nintendo towards turning the shooter into a franchise with a sequel on NX.

In addition to the Splatoon sales figures, it was revealed that 7 million amiibo have been sold in the U.S. alone. That’s a lot of Mario and Luigi figures.

This financial success could be critical for Nintendo as they begin to develop a plan for the next console generation.

What do you think about Splatoon potentially becoming a franchise? Have you been purchasing way too many amiibo? Let me in the comments what you think about all of this Nintendo financial news.
