Just realized that SNW already had six attractions (two dark rides, a coaster, two play areas, and an interactive attraction) and is probably going to get MORE. That’s potentially 1/4 of the new parks’ attractions.

Interesting post from Reddit: Splatoon seems to have joined the ranks of Nintendo's biggest franchises : NintendoSwitch

A quote: "The original Splatoon became the highest selling console game in Japan in several years, and enjoyed great success all over the world. It sold 4.93 million units worldwide. For context, Super Mario Maker sold 4.00 million, and Smash sold 5.34, a mere 0.41 million more. For context

The new Splatoon thus seemed to have a lot riding on it in terms of establishing it as a big, cornerstone Nintendo franchise, and it seems to have succeeded big time. Splatoon 2 has sold 6.02 million as of March 31st, and, extrapolating based on the rate at which it is still selling, it is well on its way to 10 million units sold, and may very likely even sell more than that lifetime. In Japan, it could conceivably be the highest selling Switch game for its lifetime, and, extrapolating based on legs of the game, it can get to 5 million and the top 10 all time sellers there."

I'm starting to think that we'll get something pretty big for Splatoon. Not a full-fledged land, but possibly a mini-land with an E-Ticket.

Never played the game before but something looks really attractive about it, perhaps the bright colors. looks like it would fit perfectly in the new park and bring something unexpected, just a filler attraction though nothing major.

As a Californian, I'm happy for the fact we're getting in first here America before Orlando. USH desperately needs a lot of love nowadays given it has a reputation of being half-theme park near to the biggest major studio in all of Hollywood, and not much room to add new rides that can be seen as exclusive in Orlando or any full Universal theme park overseas. Now I don't have to worry about waiting for it for so long and I won't have to fly to Japan or Orlando (and therefore wasting far more money) just to get into SNW.
