Game reviews ranked Nintendo Co.’s “Splatoon” almost on par with best-seller “Call of Duty,” giving an early indication of success for the company’s first-ever foray into the online shooter genre on its console.

“Splatoon,” a family friendly action game where players spray ink instead of bullets, sports a score of 81 on the review aggregator Metacritic after its release last week. That compares with 83 for the PlayStation version of Activision Blizzard Inc.’s “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” the industry’s top-selling console title in 2014.
