The launch of Metroid Dread it has attracted a lot of public attention. Considering that this delivery was one of those expected for the second half of the year, and is reaching one of the most popular platforms of the moment, there is no doubt that this delivery will perform well in sales. Before I have a clear answer, Here you can find out how the series has fared in the UK.
According to GamesIndustry.biz, the Metroid series has sold a total of 600,000 units in the UK. This is not such a high number compared to other series, but it has not done so badly either. Samus’ first adventures did not have the desired sales, since Metroid, Metroid II and Super metroid barely and they entered the list of the best sellers in this region during its launch.
Fortunately, things improved with the arrival of Metroid Prime, which is considered the game with the most units of the series in the United Kingdom, a title that it retains to this day. From this point on, the franchise had moderate success with each new installment, to the extent that Metroid Prime 3: Corruption has positioned itself as the game with the best revenue performance to date.
Now where is it Metroid Dread? Considering that this game hit the market on October 8, this installment is considered the eighth best in sales of the series.
