Most Popular WiiWare Games in America (9th July)

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 9th July:

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

N denotes a new entry

No real surprises in the ‘most popular’ list this week. The top spots remain quite stable, even Gyrostarr holds its place now that the hype has died down a little. It was good to see LostWinds have a little boost after all this time, it shows the word is out that is it one of the better WiiWare titles.

Strangely Magnetica Twist still isn’t making the impact you might have thought, especially for a Nintendo published game, maybe everyone has decided that it is a load of old balls! SPOGS Racing makes a sneaky entry into the chart, the revealing thing will be how far it manages to get this time next week, with virtually all of the reviews on the web in agreement that it is a turd.

Here is a last minute plea. Save Star Soldier R! It would be really sad to see it be the first to fall off the charts, especially against the likes of Critter Round-Up and Protöthea

As ever, have your say on this week’s findings below.
