The UK physical retail charts for last week are now out, and once again they tell a positive story for Switch exclusives (and even in one case a Switch version that sells surprisingly well).

On top for a second week is Pokémon Legends: Arceus; what makes that impressive is that it’s held off the much anticipated multi-platform release of Dying Light 2: Stay Human. Of course this only accounts for physical retail, but that applies to both games; it’s indicative of strong ongoing momentum.

The remainder of the top 10 has a number of good performers for Switch, too, with the system’s exclusives occupying 6 of the top 10. In addition to the usual entries and some returning evergreen titles, it’s also worth highlighting that 26% of FIFA 22 sales are the Legacy Edition on Switch; we’re not sure that’s a good thing, though, as we’ve slammed EA’s approach to the Switch releases in our review.

Without further ado, the top 10 is below:
