Metroid Dread Is Now the Bestselling Game in the Series

It’s been quite a long road for Metroid Dread. Originally pegged as a Nintendo DS sequel to Metroid Fusion early in the 2000s, the game would become the poster child for projects that were considered in development hell, only rumored and never officially announced for well over a decade. After multiple cancellations and a hidden tease in 2007’s Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Dread essentially disappeared again, with many worried about its potential future considering the controversy that Metroid: Other M created after it launched.
