A flurry of new games arrived on shelves last week, but Hogwarts Legacy remains the biggest seller.
Warner Bros' wizarding RPG managed a third consecutive week at No.1 of GfK's UK boxed charts, despite seeing sales drop by 51% week-on-week.
However, there were four new entries in the top ten, with Switch-exclusive Wii remake Kirby's Return To Dream Land Deluxe the highest at No.3.
Kirby was held off from the No.2 spot by FIFA 23, which saw a 21% rise in sales week-on-week.
Square Enix's retro-style RPG Octopath Traveler 2 came in at No.6. While the original was exclusive to Switch at launch, the sequel is also available for PlayStation 4 and 5.
Octopath Traveler 2 was the first in a trio of new launches that made it into the top ten, followed by Mundfish's Soviet-themed shooter Atomic Heart at No.7, and Yakuza spin-off Like A Dragon: Ishin! at No.8.
