Despite being on sale for only three days in May, Splatoon can celebrate a successful launch in the United States having placed fifth in NPD’s software charts for the month.
The only single-platform release to chart in the top ten, it beat out competition from Call of duty: Advanced Warfare, NBA 2K15, FIFA 15 and MLB 15: The Show, with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS holding in tenth place.
