The announcement of Metroid Dread seems to have gone down well, with preorders of the game selling highly in multiple regions on the popular online store Amazon.
Amazon’s Best Sellers list is updated hourly, and as of 11am BST on the 18th June 2021, Metroid Dread places in these positions on Amazon:
Germany: 7th (Standard edition), 8th (Special edition)
France: 20th (Standard edition), 16th (Special edition)
Japan: 40th (Standard edition)
North America: 4th (Standard edition)
United Kingdom: 12th (Standard edition)
The amiibo double pack appears to be highly received too, with Amazon France listing it as their 4th best selling videogame product, and Amazon Germany listing it in 3rd.
While this doesn’t reflect total preorder sales across each region, or confirm the number of copies actually preordered, it does give an early indication that the title has been received well by Amazon customers. Big thanks to Nintendo Life for bringing this to our attention!
