#1 with a bullet!

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.

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

Well the fish might have dominated in recent weeks, but they couldn't hold off the Contra Rebirth assault this week. Now it will be interesting to see how long Contra Rebirth can hold onto the top spot.

Our big climber this week was Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 2, which rocketed up 13 places to #4. The big dropper this week was NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits, which continued its drop this week falling five spots to #16. Could this charming platformer be on its way off the chart?

Of course with the debut of Contra Rebirth, we did see Cue Sports - Pool Revolution drop off of the Top 20 this week.
