The BIU (Bundesverband Interaktive Unterhaltungssoftware) has published the September sales data for Germany’s top 20 PC and console games. Metroid: Samus Returns makes its debut at #11 ahead of other new entries such as Monster Hunter Stories and Knack II, both released a week earlier, as well as NHL 18 which released on the same day.

Since these are All-Format-Charts, it should be noted that all the higher ranking new entries are all multi-platform releases while Metroid: Samus Returns is the highest new entry for a platform-exclusive release. This comes after news of quite a promising debut in Spain’s charts, as we reported earlier. It appears that, while not breaking any records or setting the charts on fire, 2D Metroid’s comeback has been a success, at least in Europe and Japan, all things considered. Sales info from the United States (where Metroid generally enjoys great popularity) for September are expected to be made public sometime within the next week.
