Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (4th 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 4th of February:
1 - Tetris Party
2 - World of Goo
3 (3) - My Aquarium
4 (4) - Cue Sports - Pool Revolution
5 (5) - Dr Mario Online Rx
6 (6) - Fun! Fun! Minigolf
7 (8) - Target Toss Pro: Bags
8 (9) - Brain Challenge
9 (10) - Midnight Bowling
10 (7) - Sandy Beach
11 (11) - My Pokémon Ranch
12 (13) - Defend your Castle
13 (14) - Wild West Guns
14 (12) - Tiki Towers
15 (15) - TV Show King
16 (16) - Mega Man 9
17 (18) - Bomberman Blast
18 (17) - Frat Party Games - Pong Toss
19 (19) - Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King
20 (N) - High Voltage Hot Rod Show
* (N) - Denotes a new entry on the Top 20
SURPRISE! It seems that the good old Russian puzzler has finally toppled the towers of goo. World of Goo has enjoyed a good number of weeks at the #1 spot, but Tetris Party has finally broken its stranglehold on the top spot. Who knows how long it can hold onto that spot. My Aquarium is also still holding strong at the #3 spot with no signs of slowing down.
The big climber this week was High Voltage Hot Rod Show, which didn't manage to chart last week, yet has now climbed into the last spot on the Top 20. The big dropper this month was Konami's Sandy Beach, which fell three spots to #10.
There are still no signs of Jungle Speed or Planet Pachinko, but at least High Voltage Hot Rod Show was able to crack the Top 20 this week. We're beginning to see less and less movement on the charts each week, so hopefully we'll see some solid releases soon to shake things up a bit.
