It’s no secret that Splatoon 3 is a big success. In it’s first weekend, it sold 3.45 million copies just in Japan, making it the fastest-selling game ever for the country. And Nintendo is already starting to reap the rewards.

Following the sales announcement, Nintendo shares have shot up in value by 6%, their largest intraday jump since December 2020. It looks like Splatoon fans won’t have to worry about the future of the series any time soon.

Crazy. In such a short time Splatoon has become such a force. Even more impressive considering it had to stumble out on the Wii U.
