United Kingdom: The best-selling Metroid game by sales and revenue

It has been a week since the latest work in the 2D Metroid series, Metroid Fear, was exclusively released on Nintendo Switch. One of the regions that saw the game release is the United Kingdom. There, GfK Entertainment released several charts showing the performance of the Metroid series in the UK.

The first chart shows the best-selling Metroid games by unit, and the second chart shows by revenue. So far, Metroid Prime games have done the best on both charts, although the order will be rearranged slightly, depending on the chart you are viewing. The only exception is Metroid Prime: Federation Force, which is almost at the bottom of the two charts.

As for Metroid Dread, one week after its release, it is currently the 8th best-selling Metroid game (by unit) and the 6th best-selling Metroid game by revenue. Compared to other 2D Metroid, it still lags behind Metroid Fusion and Metroid 2: The Return of Sams in the best-selling Metroid game. As for revenue-based charts, only Metroid Fusion currently has higher charts than Metroid Dread. Both charts can be seen in full below.
