Most Popular WiiWare Games in North America (18th June)

It’s Wednesday again, time to look at what the most popular games are in the Wii Shop. To check for yourself simply log on to your Wii Shop channel, go into the WiiWare section and then view “Popular Games”. We are checking the North American list, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be a lot different. Feel free to post your findings below as always.

Here is the list for 18th June:

1 (3) - My Pokémon Ranch
2 (1) - Dr Mario Online Rx
3 (2) - Defend your Castle
4 (4) - Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King
5 (5) - TV Show King
6 (7) - LostWinds
7 (6) - Family Table Tennis
8 (8) - Toki Tori
9 (10) - Protöthea
10 (9) - Pop
11 (11) - V.I.P. Casino: Blackjack
12 (N) - Block Breaker Deluxe
13 (N) - Cocoto Fishing Master
14 (13) - Critter Round-Up
15 (12) - Star Soldier R

N denotes a new entry

There is no surprise that Pokémon Ranch and Dr Mario rank so highly in the chart. Nintendo could release a WiiWare game called “Mario’s big turd” and gamers would flock to buy it, so let’s move on!

It is great to see Defend Your Castle so near the top still. Publishers pay attention, budget prices equal more downloads, which equals more money! LostWinds going up a place after all this time is encouraging too, some people are catching up with it a few weeks later.

This Monday’s new games make an appearance at the bottom of the charts. It will be interesting to see how they do when we look again next Wednesday. Poor old Star Soldier R, it’s not looking good! Even Protöthea is ahead of you. Will you be gone forever when this chart goes beyond 20 entries?
