Last week saw the release of the Nintendo Switch OLED Model, along with Metroid Dread. The game debuted in third place on the UK charts and was the highest-grossing Metroid game at launch in the UK, beating out the previous record holder Metroid Prime on the GameCube. This is without including digital sales.

GamesIndustry has now collected a list of the best-selling Metroid games of all time in the UK. Metroid Dread after just two days is already the eighth best-selling entry in the franchise.
