Fans of MetroidIt is time to celebrate as the most recent installment of the franchise starring Samus Aran has performed well in the market. Although it was expected that it would not compete with titles of the commercial caliber of FIFA O Call of Duty, Metroid Dread made its way into the UK and achieved a good position in the Top 10 sales last month.
FIFA 22 dominated sales in October in the UK
The video game sales report for October 2021 is here, courtesy of GSD, giving an account of how well the most important games did in physical and digital format. At the beginning there are no surprises in the first place, because FIFA 22 is the best-selling game of October, showing that it continues to be an unstoppable franchise and more so in a region where soccer is almost a religion. On the other hand, the second place went to Far Cry 6, a title whose sales also refer to the transition to digital format since 47% of them were in physical format.
In addition, Back 4 Blood had a very good debut that helped him to place himself in third position, followed by the eternal Grand Theft Auto V and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

In the same way, the performance of the most recent title of Samus Aran stands out in this list with its sixth place because it is there only with the physical sales record, since Nintendo does not share data on digital sales, so if the commercial performance of The cartridges were so good and this is added to what has been achieved in digital format, it is almost a fact that Metroid Dread it was a success by the standards of the IP and what it has sold over the years.
