Dread doesn't have either of those problems. The Switch is more successful than either the Wii or GameCube were and will go on to outsell both of them combined (and by a comfortable margin from the looks of it). And it's a far more popular system amongst dedicated, hardcore gamers than the Wii ever was.
The problem Dread does have is that no matter what it's still a 2d Metroidvania game. What's the highest selling title in that genre? It will always have a limited reach because of the type of game it is.
Still Dread has the potential to be the best selling game in that genre ever. Being a fairly lackluster year for Nintendo first party gives Metroid a bigger platform than it might otherwise have too.
