Metroid Dread

Famitsu’s Japanese chart figures are now in for the week ending 10th October, revealing that Metroid Dread has gone straight to the top of the pile on its debut week.

Nintendo’s latest Switch exclusive managed to fend off the threat of Far Cry 6, selling 86,798 physical units in its opening weekend. For comparison’s sake, Ubisoft’s new first-person adventure managed just over 50,000 sales across both PS4 and PS5.

Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! also entered the software charts top ten this week, debuting in eighth place, with plenty of Switch’s biggest names making up the rest of the order.

Here are the top ten (first numbers are this week’s estimated sales, followed by total sales):


  1. [NSW] Metroid Dread (Nintendo, 10/08/21) – 86,798 (New)
  2. [PS4] Far Cry 6 (Ubisoft, 10/07/21) – 34,219 (New)
