Splatoon’s Latest Wii U Bundle Sold About 12,000 Units In Japan



We saw how Splatoon made a push in sales this week that gave the game and Wii U console a boost with the new bundle in Japan. Media Create provides an update with additional information.


Before talking about Splatoon and the Wii U, Media Create starts out by showing how Culdcept Revolt took the top spot by selling 29,321 copies in its first week. While it may seem like a decent amount, it’s actually less than half the previous Culdcept game which sold about 55,000 copies in its first week in June 2012.



The above is a look at the Wii U Splatoon Set, which released in Japan on July 7. It includes the Wii U console with Splatoon pre-installed, along with amiibo figures for Callie and Marie.


According to Media Create, the set has sold close to 12,000 units, which boosted Wii U hardware sales by 3.5 times going from 4,444 units to 15,470 in just three days. With no more major updates coming to Splatoon and the game’s final Splatfest taking place next week, we can see this as a last hurrah for the popular Wii U title.


Splatoon is currently available on Wii U. Culdcept Revolt is available for Nintendo 3DS in Japan.
