There’s a bit of stories to report concerning Metroid Dread’s gross sales efficiency within the UK. That is primarily based on knowledge supplied by GfK.
The Swap title has already overtaken previous entries within the sequence to turn out to be the best-selling 2D entry. Moreover, it’s the third largest Metroid game total – it’s solely behind Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 3. Since digital gross sales aren’t included, it’s anticipated that Metroid Dread will quickly be the highest Metroid game within the UK as an entire if it isn’t already.
After Metroid Dread launched final yr, we heard that it had the franchise’s largest launch within the UK. Solely Tremendous Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, Monster Hunter Rise, and New Pokemon Snap had performed higher on Swap that yr on the time.
As for the US, Nintendo confirmed that Metroid Dread offered 854,000 items in October 2021. Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser talked about that it had seen “the very best begin for any Metroid game ever.”
