Most Popular WiiWare Games in America (2nd July)
Posted by Darren Calvert
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 list for the American region, 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 2nd July:
1 - My Pokémon Ranch
2 - Dr Mario Online Rx
3 (3) - Defend your Castle
4 (10) - Gyrostarr
5 (4) - Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King
6 (8) - Cocoto Fishing Master
7 (5) - TV Show King
8 (7) - Block Breaker Deluxe
9 (6) - LostWinds
10 (9) - Family Table Tennis
11 (13) - V.I.P. Casino: Blackjack
12 (11) - Pop
13 (12) - Toki Tori
14 (14) - Protöthea
15 (N) - Magnetica Twist
16 (15) - Critter Round-Up
17 (16) - Star Soldier R
N denotes a new entry
Gyrostarr seems to have been a big hit shooting up to an impressive 4th place, after debuting at #10 just two days after release. Compare this to Magnetica Twist which has only managed to make it to #15 in two days. It’ll be interesting to see what position this Nintendo published title makes it to this time next week.
I can’t believe that Cocoto Fishing has actually gone up this week, bizarre! Again no change with the top three showing that Nintendo games always reign supreme on WiiWare and Defend Your Castle is still popular at its low selling point.
Poor old LostWinds is starting to fall now, from #6 to #9. Could it be beginning its decline out of the charts? It doesn’t look like Star Soldier R is going to be around for much longer, another few more games and it’ll be pushed from the top 20 forever it seems!
As ever, what are your thoughts on this week’s charts?
