And the third best-selling game in the series!
Metroid Dread came out in October of last year and got a lot of love from fans and critics. Jorden gave the game 9.5 and called it “one of the smoothest games on the Switch with a really good story in the background”. The game also performed well financially. Nintendo previously announced that the game has sold 2.74 million units. Although the game does not come close to the popularity of Mario, Zelda or Pokémon, it is quite a lot compared to other Metroid games. Now Christopher Dread from Gamesindustry.biz has announced that Metroid Dread is the UK’s best-selling 2D Metroid game.
Unfortunately, it is not yet known how many pieces of the game were sold. Metroid Dread is now the third best-selling game in the series after Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. This is what the game achieved before the expiration of six months. These numbers do not include digital sales. If they do, Metroid Dread could indeed be the best-selling Metroid game in the country.
