Splatoon has become the biggest new IP launch on Nintendo’s Wii U console in the UK.


That’s according to Chart Track, which notes that the previous best franchise launch was Ubisoft’s Zombi U, released back in November 2012.

Splatoon is the fifth fastest-selling Wii U game in the region to date.

It entered the UK charts at number two in its debut week, as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt remains the best-selling game.
