It's time to take a look at the most popular WiiWare titles available on the Wii Shop Channel. 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 easy!
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 13th of May:
1 - World of Goo
2 - My Aquarium
3 (3) - Tetris Party
4 (4) - My Pokémon Ranch
5 (7) - Dr Mario Online Rx
6 (6) - Onslaught
7 (9) - Defend Your Castle
8 (8) - Cue Sports - Pool Revolution
9 (10) - Fun! Fun! Minigolf
10 (5) - Crystal Defenders R1
11 (11) - Brain Challenge
12 (12) - Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King
13 (17) - BIT.TRIP BEAT
14 (14) - Bomberman Blast
15 (13) - Sandy Beach
16 (16) - Wild West Guns
17 (18) - Midnight Bowling
18 (19) - Target Toss Pro: Bags
19 (--) - Mega Man 9
20 (15) - Pop'Em Drop'Em SAMEGAME
* (N) - Denotes a brand new entry on the Top 20
* - Denotes a game that was not on the Top 20 last week
It would seem now that we have the "Fantastic Four" atop the charts, as they remain intact this week once again. Dr Mario Online Rx even managed to jump back up into the top five.
The big climber this week was once again BIT.TRIP BEAT, which jumped up four more spots to #13. This game just keeps climbing. The big dropper this week was Crystal Defenders R1, which fell five spots to #10. Could this latest Square-Enix WiiWare title be in for the same type of roller coaster ride Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King has enjoyed on the charts since its release?
One big surprise this week would be the return of the blue bomber to the Top 20. You just can't keep a good Mega Man down and his first WiiWare adventure jumps from off the charts completely all the way back up to #19 this week. It should be interesting to see how far it can make it back up the charts over the coming weeks.
