Even though it’s one of the studio’s most well-known series, Metroid has nearly always sold rather poorly in comparison to other Nintendo franchises. Even the legendary Super Metroid failed to meet Sales expectations back in the 90s. Metroid wouldn’t return until the GameCube with the release of Metroid Prime, which was praised by fans and critics alike. The series then saw many more releases, unfortunately followed by another extended drought after Metroid: Other M received poor scores and sales alike.
Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda are undoubtedly some of Nintendo’s best franchises with consistently enormous sales and high-quality gameplay, but the company’s catalog is unfortunately filled with dozens of titles that can only claim the latter. Games like F-Zero and Earthbound are engaging, but those titles failed to meet sales demands and haven’t seen a new entry since. The Metroid series seemed to be locked somewhere in the middle, since it’s had many titles released, yet most of them haven’t broken the sales Nintendo likely wanted to see. Fans were relieved after Samus Returns and Metroid Prime 4 were announced, but there might be another 2D Metroid game coming to the Switch soon.
