Metroid Dread: Best launch for the series in Japan

According to reports from the well-known Japanese magazine Famitsu, Metroid Dread would be the title of the series with the highest number of sales in the week of launch since 2000.

Going into even more detail, the last chapter of the science fiction epic Nintendo would have placed about 87 thousand copies sold. It must also be considered that sales in digital format are not considered in this numerical data.

Metroid: Samus Returns, the 2017 Nintendo 3DS remake of Metroid II: Return of Samus, had sold 29 copies in Japan. In this sense, the difference in sales compared to Metroid Dread is really considerable and makes it clear how successful the new game starring Samus is.

Recall that currently the best-selling game in Metroid history (globally) is Metroid Prime, with approximately 2.84 million copies sold to date. Will Dread succeed in ousting the first chapter of the Prime series in terms of sales?
