It's Wednesday again and time for the WiiWare Top 20!
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 24th of June:
1 - Final Fantasy IV: The After Years
2 - Texas Hold'em Tournament
3 (4) - My Aquarium
4 (5) - World of Goo
5 (3) - Swords & Soldiers
6 (6) - Tetris Party
7 (8) - My Pokémon Ranch

* (--) - Denotes a game that was not on the Top 20 last week
Well Final Fantasy IV: The After Years has managed to hold off Texas Hold'em Tournament for another week in its bid to stay atop the chart, but Swords & Soldiers wasn't so lucky as it dropped two spots to #5. My Aquarium and World of Goo didn't waste any time in beginning their climb back up the chart again. Can these two powerhouses work their way back up to the top spots again? We wouldn't bet against them.
The big climber this week was Eduardo the Samurai Toaster, which jumped from off the chart completely, all the way up to #11. Not a bad debut at all. The big dropper this week was Hudson's Adventure Island: The Beginning, which fell 8 spots to #20. Could this be its last week on the chart?
Unfortunately, with the appearance of Eduardo the Samurai Toaster, we did see Silver Star Chess drop out of the Top 20. We'll have to wait and see if it's able to climb back into the Top 20 down the line. Other than that, there wasn't a huge amount of movement this week in the Top 20.
