Changed to a more appropriate title because 1 million sales is too high for a Metroid game.
Note: not counting digital sales.
In fact, it's one of the worst sold Metroid games selling even below Metroid Prime Trilogy in physical sales and most likely digital as well. The only other Metroid game it surpassed is
Federation Force... slow clap.
Of course we've got the same old excuses as to why it sold poorly but like i said one year ago, the sales for this game are beyond bad and not much has improved since. This won't do Metroid as a series any good.
Yes, it released late during 3DS life and Switch was already out but this is a "good Metroid game" fans were craving for even if it's just a remake it's Metroid, a series is so highly praised in the west yet not even supported by it own fanbase.
Nintendo still hasn't released any official numbers nor any word on SR we've heard a rumor of another Metroid project for 3DS which sounds great but unlikely probably because of the good reception SR received.
Metroid Prime 4 will probably sell better, wishful thinking it'll pass 2 million but not expected. Hopefully Nintendo doesn't give up on 2D Metroid, i'm still waiting for Metroid 5.
All that Smash Metroid hype and promoting over the years has not worked at all.Last edited by Snoorlax - on 29 September 2018
