Metroid Dread Hits Franchise Sales Record In UK

An EMMI captures Samus

Is Metroid Dread the best selling game in the franchise’s history? Maybe? Possibly?

In the UK, it premiered solidly at #3, right behind fellow new release Far Cry 6 and, as ever, FIFA 22. But how did its performance compare to past Metroids? has the scoop: While Dread didn’t quite beat out Gamecube’s Metroid Prime in boxed physical sales, it has become the franchise’s highest-grossing entry ever in the UK. Digital sales are still unknown, but all signs point to Dread being a success for Nintendo. It’s also apparently the “fifth biggest Nintendo Switch launch of the year.”

Will that trend continue worldwide?
