Clinging to #1

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 17th of June:

1 (1) - Final Fantasy IV: The After Years
2 (3) - Texas Hold'em Tournament
3 (10) - Swords & Soldiers
4 (4) - My Aquarium
5 (5) - World of Goo
6 (6) - Tetris Party
7 (2) - Bubble Bobble Plus
8 (7) - My Pokémon Ranch
9 (9) - Dr Mario Online Rx
10 (11) - Defend Your Castle
11 (13) - Onslaught
12 (8) - Adventure Island: The Beginning

20 (16) - Silver Star Chess

* (N) - Denotes a brand new entry on the Top 20
* (--) - Denotes a game that was not on the Top 20 last week

Well Final Fantasy IV: The After Years manages to hold on to the top spot for another week, with Texas Hold'em Tournament sneaking up into the second spot.

The big climber this week is Swords & Soldiers, which jumps seven spots to #3 on this week's Top 20. The big dropper this week is Bubble Bobble Plus, which fell five spots to #7.

We didn't see any of this week's releases make the Top 20 and World of Goo and My Aquarium both manage to hold onto their spots at #5 and #4 respectively. We did see Adventure Island: The Beginning and Silver Star Chess begin their descent down the Top 20. Who knows where they'll end up next week?
