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.

The Fabulous Five has now turned into the Super Six as the top six WiiWare titles remain unchanged from a week ago. It's hard to believe that Defend Your Castle was a WiiWare launch title and still has itself entrenched in the top 10.
The big climber this week is obviously Bubble Bobble Plus. It is one of those few games that manages to crack the Top 20 during its week of release, and it even managed to break into the top 10 coming in at #9. That's easily one of the most impressive WiiWare debuts in the history of the service. The big dropper this week was Crystal Defenders R1 which fell from #10 all the way off the Top 20 completely in one week's time.
We also saw two new entries this week with Crystal Defenders R2 coming in at #15 and Silver Star Chess coming it at #16. But with new entries comes the dropping off of other titles. This week we lost Crystal Defenders R1, Midnight Bowling, and Pop'Em Drop'Em SAMEGAME.
