  1. That’s some drop-off in sales for Metroid Dread, more akin to falling off a cliff. Very disappointing to see Japan not appreciating Metroid and an excellent entry in the series.

    1. Yup, it’s a shame, but it seems to have done well here in the west and it has been promoted well by Nintendo which is great.

      1. I agree with you sickr 100%. Metroid Dread did really well in the west but I guess japan have no compassion for the franchise after it’s hiatus. This is really sad.

  2. Imagine if WiiU and 3ds titles where selling this much better than Switch titles a year after it’s release. It kinds shows how slow games are actually releasing for the PS5. And before people say it’s because it’s supply limited, the PS5 is actually selling more than the PS4 year to date sales.
