250k in 2 weeks, for comparison sake
Federation Force sold less than 25k in
that period of time, so at least
nintendo is getting the message that you
can sell 10 times better if you do a
Metroid people actually wants. It seems
to be holding on well in Europe and
decently in NA, let's hope it keeps
holding on for a while.

Well there is a reason why JRPGs, visual
novels and more slow paced games usually
do better in Japan. While there is a
niche of fans in Japan that enjoys
Metroid style games, the bigger market
for those and platformers in general are
usually outside of Japan.

Wtf do Japanese gamers play?

Also, it has already outsold Federation
Force, it's gotta count for something.

@CaptainExplosion lol, dude calm down.
It's probably around 250K in 2 or so
months. That's not terrible. I'm sure
It'll hit 500K-750K if it has nice
legs. What matters is if it made profit
or not. That's what's going to decide
if we get more 2D and 3D Metroid.
