If Dread was more than mid, it could have sold more than 3ish. Not 10, but 5ish maybe. It really lacked innovation and something fresh to grip you to it.Remember when posters were saying Dread would sell like 10mil copies? Sidebar, I know, but Metroid just doesn't match what the fans think it should, so no blimps should be expected.
That's also my worry for MP4. Yes they can do the same formula and I will love it, but I'm hoping they really rethink this like BotW.
