Japan's obsession with Splatoon is hilarious and baffling at the same time
Have you played the game recently? The reason why people get so into the universe is really evident even at first glance.

And by the way it's not only a Japan exclusive, Splatoon 2 has sold more than BotW in Spain for the past 5 months for example, and it's currently doing the same in Italy too. Globally speaking it sold as much as Odyssey in the last 3 month report. 760k Odyssey, 740k Splatoon 2.

Don't disagree- but 2 months seems like too low of a timeframe for release announcement to release.
Didn’t the first Builders game have a very fast announcement to release cycle?

It would be uncommon, but I think it has become a more popular move in recent years. Most games don’t need the whole hype buildup that they used to.
