Here’s how many units Splatoon 2 sold in Japan

Splatoon 2 update

Media Create has published the latest sales data for the week ending July 23 in Japan, which included the launch week of Splatoon 2. The new title sold insanely well, almost 650,000 units. That means more than half of Switch owners in the country purchased the game, and that doesn’t even include digital sales! The Switch sold a further 99,000 units, up from 32,000 units last week. Layton’s Mystery Journey, which also launched last week, sold more than 70,000 units in the country.

Full sales are included below, thanks to Gematsu.
