Nintendo shares see a jump with the launch of the much awaited “Splatoon”

Nintendo shares see a jump with the launch of the much awaited “Splatoon”

"Splatoon" where the players contend in an inky turf war, sold over 3.45 million units in three days

The shares of Nintendo Co Ltd saw a 5% jump after the video game company recorded domestic launch sales for its shooter "Splatoon 3" on the Switch console. The latest "Splatoon" title where the players contend in an inky turf war, sold over 3.45 million units in three days after its launch on September 9th.The title's sales have exceeded the sales of their other games such as "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate", "New Horizons" and " Animal Crossing: New Horizons". The strong figures point to the ongoing appeal of the Switch console, which has an install base of 111 million units, in its sixth year on the market, and Nintendo's continued ability to generate crowd-pleasing hits.

Investors are gauging the extent of industry deceleration as a stay-at-home boom during the COVID-19 pandemic that drove sales of island life simulator "Animal Crossing" unwinds. The industry has delayed high-profile titles into next year, with Nintendo pushing back the release of the much awaited sequel to "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild". The Kyoto-based firm has a robust release schedule ahead of the year-end shopping season, with two Pokemon titles due to launch in November.
