Metroid Dread has not even come out for a full week in Nintendo Switch, but it seems that it could be the most successful entry in the history of long-term franchise. According to some initial sales data that has now been obtained in the United Kingdom, metroid DRead is already on the way to being a great achievement for Nintendo, which means that the series could end up returning more regularly in the future.
According to Gi.BIZ, metroid Dread was the third best-selling game in retail last week, which makes it the game of greater collection in the history of the Metroid series. Although MoreID Prime ended up selling more copies in general in its first week of launch in 2002, the disparity between it and metroid Dread was only about 1,000 copies. When taking into account the digital sales of metroid Dread, which are not added here, it is logical that the game has already exceeded the sales of the week one of metroid prime.
Although it is currently unknown as MERTO DREAD could be functioning in other regions of the world, this public sales information of the United Kingdom is often reflected in other markets. As such, there is a great chance that the game is quickly on the way to becoming the best-selling Metroid game in history. At present, metroid prime 3: corruption is the entry of the series that holds this record. However, given the high that the Nintendo Switch installation basis is, it seems quite likely that Nintendo will break the Metroid sales records in an official capacity in a short time.
If you have not played metroid Dread at the moment, the game is available exclusively in Nintendo Switch. On the contrary, be sure to be attentive to our coverage here at Comicbook.com in the near future, since we should have a review of the title to share soon enough.
