It is probably because of BOTW, the game won that "best game of all time" poll with over 50k people.
>star fox above donkey kong and luigi's mansion
It's ok Star Fox bros, we're gonna make it
yeah I know nips love botw but it seems weird to have the entire series so high when they didn't give a shit about it for the longest time
Probably entirely off of Dread (and maybe a few ZSS coomers)
It's amazing how ZSS and Smash made the Nips care about Metroid. Half of the fanbase is probably made of coomers at this point but, fuck man, when you realise that Dread sold over 3.9 millions copies in less than a year, i'd say it was worth it.
Just like how Star Fox is above Donkey Kong solely because of fury pandering, despite Star Fox not getting a single good game since Star Fox 64, while DK is one of the best 2D platformer of all time.
>Japs care about Metroid now because Dread was good I doubt it. Japs never cared about Metroid, even when ZSS didn't exited. The prime Trilogy, Super, Fusion and Zero mission all sold baddly there, despite being really good games.
Metroid is selling because sex sells. Just like how Xenoblade exist since 2010's on the wii, but it only recently made it in the top 10, because Xenoblade 2 is full of cooming material, while Xenoblade 1 had way less fan-service.
There is barely any Zero Suit in Dread so your argument falls apart.
>8.Xenoblade Chronicles - 1563 Winning. It's more impressive when you realize the people who got asked for this survey are total casuals. Thanks Rex, Pyra, and all you guys.
>while Xenoblade 1 had way less fan-service. Not true. It had way more. You just didn't notice it because you were a little kid back then and the resolution of the Wii game was 480p.
I'm American. I don't eat fruit.
It is actually. Good fiber, nice quick caloric boost, and perfectly portable. The first bite of a good apple is so good that the most popular book in history describes it as an unresistable sin.
>Metroid doesn't sell well in Japan >Smash adds ZSS in its roster >Suddenly Japan likes Metroid and Dread, aka, the first big 2D Metroid game to come out, sells more than any other entries in the series.
I think the fact that half of the fanarts of Metroid Dread you can find on Gelboruu/Danboruu are about ZSS despite the fact that it does not appears in this game is a good validation of my argument.
>(Isn't that Elite Beat Agents?) No, that's Ouendan.
Congratulations; people like you voted for Super Mario.
Not that user but they would've bought Other M and Fed Force if they liked ZSS in Smash since she's been there since Brawl.
>The first bite of a good apple is so good that the most popular book in history describes it as an unresistable sin. Actually it’s more likely that the forbidden fruit was supposed to be a fig since they pop up a lot in the bible and the clothing God made for Adam & Eve was made out of fig leaves. It’s that or grapes.
Honestly I'm really surprised that Zelda beat both Kirby and Splatoon.
Daigasso Band Brothers is the music creation game series they did for DS and 3DS, the second (I believe) was released in Europe as Jam with the Band, and Barbara from it was an assist trophy in Smash Bros Brawl. Also the JANPU girl costume from Mario Maker is a character from the 3DS Band Brothers game.
Dread sold 2.9, not 3.9
>the top 10 are the shit ones >11-21 are the actually good ones
