Metroid Dread 3rd Best-Selling Metroid Game in UK History

Metroid Dread 3rd Best-Selling Metroid Game in UK History - Sales

by William D'Angelo , posted on 20 March 2022 / 1,936 Views

The head of GamesIndustry Christopher Dring via Twitter revealed Metroid Dread is already the third best-selling Metroid game ever in the UK.

Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 3 are the only two games in the series to have sold more units. Metroid Dread is also the best-selling 2D Metroid game.

The figure doesn't include digital sales, which has only grown in recent years. It is entirely possible when you include digital sales etroid Dread might have sold more than Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 3.

"Metroid Dread is now the third biggest Metroid game in UK history, behind Metroid Prime and Prime 3," said Dring. "It’s already the UK’s best-selling 2D Metroid. This doesn’t include digital sales, so it’s quite likely it’s now, or will soon be, the No.1 Metroid overall (GfK data)."

Sales data without digital units included is quickly becoming worthless.

So highest selling traditional Metroid. The Switch just keeps breaking records for its franchises. Maybe it’ll eventually pass the others.

YEEEESS. The Curse of the 3M has its days numbered. With a bit of luck, in May we will celebrate a new Switch record.
