Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (26th Nov)
Posted by Corbie Dillard
It's Wednesday again which can only mean one thing. It's time to take a look at the most popular WiiWare titles available in the Wii Shop. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to your Wii Shop channel, heading into the WiiWare section and then viewing "Popular Games". It's that simple! Trust us, if we can do it, anyone can.
We compile this list using the USA region Wii Shop channel, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.
Keep in mind that the list below is a measure of actual sales made recently, not of the total time the game has been available for sale.
Here is the list for the 26th of November:
1 - World of Goo
2 - Tetris Party
3 (4) - Brain Challenge
4 (3) - My Aquarium
5 (N) - Target Toss Pro: Bags
6 (15) - Strong Bad Episode 4 - Dangeresque 3
7 (5) - Mega Man 9
8 (6) - Dr Mario Online Rx
9 (7) - Defend your Castle
10 (8) - Midnight Bowling
11 (9) - The Incredible Maze
12 (10) - Bomberman Blast

N denotes a new entry
Once again World of Goo is holding strong at the top of the chart along with Tetris Party. Capcom's retro title Mega Man 9 is also holding its own inside the Top 10 as well. One particularly impressive fact is that four of the six WiiWare launch titles are still hanging on inside the Top 20 over six months after their original release. This week's WiiWare releases, Boingz and Sudoku Challenge!, have so far failed to make an appearance in the Top 20 as of yet.
Both WiiWare titles from last week, Target Toss Pro: Bags and Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam, both managed to crack the Top 20 list this week. In fact, in a rather surprising move, Target Toss Pro: Bags went from not even making the Top 20 last week to jumping all the way up to the #5 spot this week. As you can imagine, this makes it this week's biggest climber. Of course this overshadows the huge climb Strong Bad Episode 4 - Dangerseque 3 made with its impressive nine spot jump to #6. The biggest drop award goes to Strong Bad Episode 3 - Baddest of the Bands, which fell six spots to #20.
My Aquarium finally lost its hold on the #3 spot, but still remains a popular WiiWare download week after week. Strong Bad Episode 1 - Homestar Ruiner finally joined company with Strong Bad Episode 2 - Strong Badia the Free, as both have now fallen completely out of the Top 20 altogether.
We also want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Be safe and try not to eat too much! (We know you will anyway)
