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 big climber this week was Arkanoid Plus!, which rocketed from off the chart completely, all the way up to #11. The big dropper this week was Texas Hold'em Tournament, which plummeted from #12 last week, all the way off the chart completely this week.
Of course with three new additions to the Top 20, we did see Family Slot Car Racing, Texas Hold'em Tournament, and Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 2 drop off the chart this week. Only time will tell if these titles can make another appearance on the Top 20 in future weeks.
