Was Splatoon 2 the most popular shooter game for the Nintendo Switch in 2018?

When it comes down to popular shooters that has appeared on the Nintendo Switch since its release back in March 2017 one of the many titles that instantly comes to mind is Splatoon 2. For those who are unaware the third person multiplayer shooter game was released back in July 2017 and has gained a significant amount of mainstream attention before and after its release. The main attraction for Splatoon 2 includes its single-player mode along with the title’s online multiplayer mode which could feature up to eight different players. It was reported back in September 2018 that Splatoon 2 managed to reach at least 7.4 million copies since its release much to the surprise of many people including those who are fans of the series in general.

When it comes down to high profile shooter titles Splatoon 2 is considered to be the biggest title that we have on the Switch right now and it seems like its going to remain that way for a while. While successful shooters such as Wolfenstein II and Doom are still attractions for the Nintendo Switch they are both third party games. As many people know third party games generally tends to get overshadowed on Nintendo based consoles and despite how popular Doom and Wolfenstein II are they are shooters that will ultimate end up playing second fiddle to titles like Splatoon 2 on the hybrid console.
