Only one new entrant in the Australian physical games charts top 10 this week, but it’s gone straight to the top spot. Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution for Nintendo Switch has ruled at retail in another extremely quiet week for new releases.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist was originally released on PS4 and Xbox One way back in 2015, and on PC in 2016. This new Switch version includes all the post-release DLC that was made available for the existing versions of the game.

Beginning in 1996, Yu-Gi-Oh! is a Japanese multimedia juggernaut that spans manga, anime, novels, films, trading cards, games, and truckloads of other merchandise. If you haven’t a clue about it, know you’re not alone – but it’s worth pointing out Yu-Gi-Oh is *checks notes* one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time, estimated to hover somewhere between Transformers and Toy Story in terms of revenue.

Two-through-10 is business as usual, with kart games, Rockstar blockbusters, and evergreen Nintendo exclusives making up the numbers.
