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.

* (--) - Denotes a game that was not on the Top 20 last week
Final Fantasy IV: The After Years continues it's strong stay at #1 with Bubble Bobble Plus settled in nicely at #2. Texas Hold'em Tournament has now taken its place in the top three, sending My Aquarium and World of Goo down another spot this week.
The biggest climber this week was Texas Hold'em Tournament, which jumped an unbelievable 16 places to #3. How's that for a jump? The big dropper this week was Silver Star Chess, which fell a meager three spots to #16.
We did see yet another first week entry on the chart with Swords & Soldiers debuting all the way up at #10 this week. Fish'em All wasn't able to crack the Top 20 this week, but we'll see how it does next week after it's had a full week of release. The new entry of Swords & Soldiers did knock Crystal Defenders R2 off the chart, but with the way things have been shaping up lately, it's got a good chance of popping back on the Top 20 again down the road.
On a side note, Bomberman Blast and Mega Man 9 continue to crawl their way back up the Top 20 and good old Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King is still holding on as well.
