Splatoon sells more than 4 million copies

Nintendo's Splatoon has sold more than 4 million copies, meaning that a quarter of Wii U owners bought the game.

Super Mario Maker wasn't far behind, selling 3.34m units, while Mario Kart 8 sold 2.1m copies and finally, Yoshi's Woolly World passed the 1m sales barrier. 

All this seems to suggest that Nintendo fans are quite loyal when it comes to first party titles, although lets face it, with third parties support lacking from the larger publishers, there's not really a lot else to look forward to on the Wii U.

Nintendo's latest financial report shows its sales are roughly equal compared to the same period last year, although profits dropped 32 per cent year-on-year to 40.5 billion Yen ($336m).

On the brighter side, Nintendo sold an impressive 20.5m Amiibo figures, along with 21.50 million Amiibo cards.

On 3DS, Animal Crossing spin-off Happy Home Designer sold 2.93m copies, while Zelda: Tri Force Heroes sold 1.08m.

The biggest sellers on 3DS are older titles such as Mario Kart 7, which sold another 1.3m copies and is now up to 13m overall, Smash Bros. 3DS, selling 1.1 copies and 7.92m overall and Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, selling 1.5m making 11.4m overall sales.

So not too shabby really.

This was the last game I bought for the WiiU but got bored of it. Just waiting for the two Zelda games and Starfox now. Shame cause I haven't turned it on for weeks.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
