Nintendo announced today that Splatoon 3 has already sold 3.45 million copies in Japan, just three days after its September 9 launch.

This is the best performance for any Switch game in Japan during the first three days.

Splatoon 3 would always be one of Nintendo’s biggest launches for the Switch this year, but this is an extraordinary start. Again, this number only includes Japanese sales. While the Splatoon series is particularly popular in Nintendo’s home market, sales from areas like the US will help boost that number significantly.

The last entry in the franchise, Splatoon 2, debuted in 2017. It has sold over 13.30 million copies worldwide.
