According to GamesIndustry’s Christopher Dring, Metroid Dread has now had the third biggest launch of a Metroid title in the history of the United Kingdom, second only to Metroid Prime 1 and 3. It has already become the best selling 2D Metroid game in the UK. This is according to sales figures from GfK. While they only accounts for physical sales and does not include digital, it’s a strong indicator that the game will soon become the best selling Metroid game overall, if it hasn’t already.
