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.

We did see a new addition to the Top 20 this week with the appearance of You, Me, and the Cubes at #10. While it didn't make it onto the chart during its first week of release, jumping all the way up to #10 in a week's time is pretty impressive. It will be interesting to see how far up it can climb in the coming weeks.
The big climber this week was You, Me, and the Cubes, which came from off the charts completely all the way up to #10 as mentioned above. The big dropper this week was Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 2, which dropped seven spots to #20. Looks like this one is on its way out.
Of course with the new addition of You, Me, and the Cubes, we did see Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My life as a Darklord slip off the Top 20 this week. Apparently it didn't have the lasting power of its predecessor.
