With stellar action and enticing exploration, it seems fair to say that Metroid Dread is, simply put, one hell of a game. The game has performed really well on the commercial front, too- so well that Metroid Dread is now the best-selling 2D Metroid in the UK.

As revealed by GamesIndustry.biz’s Christopher Dring on Twitter, Metroid Dread is the third-best selling Metroid game in the UK, behind Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Of course, this makes it the best selling 2D Metroid game in the UK to date. A point worth noting here is that this conclusion is drawn without taking digital sales into account, which will likely make it the best selling Metroid game of all time (in the UK, at least).

According to the NPD Group, Metroid Dread sold around 854,000 units in the US in its launch month alone, while Nintendo has confirmed that its worldwide sales stand at more than 2.74 million units as of the end of 2021. While details on the highly-anticipated Metroid Prime 4 remain scant for now, series producer Yoshio Sakamoto has reassured fans that Metroid Dread is not the ultimate end 2D Metroid– read more on that through here.
