Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (25th Feb)
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 25th of February:
1 - Tetris Party
2 - My Aquarium
3 (3) - World of Goo
4 (4) - Cue Sports - Pool Revolution
5 (5) - Dr Mario Online Rx
6 (12) - My Pokémon Ranch

19 (20) - Tiki Towers
20 (18) - Bomberman Blast
* (N) - Denotes a new entry on the Top 20
The big three remain intact for another week and show no signs of slowing down at this point. It looks like these three titles are by far the most popular and successful titles the WiiWare service has seen to date. We'll just have to wait and see if any title can finally knock one of them out of the top three.
In a rather sad move, Mega Man 9 has now officially dropped off the charts and in a surprising move, Tiki Towers not only didn't drop off the charts as some expected, it managed to climb up one spot to #19. In another rather odd twist, My Pokmeon Ranch is enjoying a bit of a resurgence and jumped six spots all the way back up to #6.
The big climber this week was Hudson's Onslaught title that came flying in from off the charts all the way up to #17. We'll have to wait and see how high it can climb, but it didn't debut nearly as high as last week's new chart appearance by Wayforward's LIT which was, oddly enough, this week's biggest dropper falling five spots to #11.
There was quite a bit of movement in this week's chart and some interesting surprises to go along with it. Here's hoping next week's chart will be even more interesting.
