I see that both Game Boy Mario titles are just behind Link's Awakening DX. It'll be interesting to see where Wario Land and Kid Icarus will be placed in the future.

The answer to the question "What are people downloading for this?" is zero, because that color is not available in NA. God is in the details.

Why was Mario vs. Donkey Kong on the top? That's a really old DSiWare.. Oh well.. still pretty good though.

@ryanthehedgehog (10.): I'd say because you can pay for it with Club Nintendo Coins and it has Mario in its name. And yeah, the fact it's a good game doesn't hurt either.
