MercurySteam’s Metroid Dread has been breaking information in every single place since its launch. And it is effectively deserved too as a result of it is completely good — should you’ve in some way missed it within the months since its October 2021 launch, take a look at our assessment to search out out why!

And it appears like the most recent entry within the area bounty hunter’s journey has simply damaged one other enormous milestone. In line with Christopher Dring at GameIndustry.biz, Metroid Dread is now the best-selling 2D Metroid game within the UK, and that is with out digital gross sales.

Metroid has by no means been an enormous vendor — and we’ll have to attend a little bit bit to get the precise figures for Dread and the franchise, so this UK-specific information is incredible for the builders and Metroid followers, virtually pretty much as good as rescuing that child Metroid!

Equally as notable is that Dread is general the third biggest-selling game in the entire franchise on this little island, behind solely Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Metroid Dread hasn’t even been out for six months but, so the truth that it is already biting on the heels of those two 3D FPS titles is fairly outstanding.

Simply final month, we reported that Metroid Dread was very near turning into the best-selling entry within the franchise worldwide, and that was based mostly on gross sales up till 31st December. So it is in all probability already acquired that crown. It appears like a far cry from 12 months in the past, the place we had been determined for something Metroid-related, nervous that the franchise can be over. We salute you, Samus.
