Fish FTW!

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.

Well the fish still have their stranglehold on the top two spots, but it seems that World of Goo is making its way back up towards the top again, climbing up to #3 this week. We're also seeing our old friend Defend Your Castle once again making its way back up the chart as well. Not too shabby considering it was a WiiWare launch title.

The big climber this week was Family Slot Car Racing, which jumped up six spots to #9 this week. The big dropper this week was NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits, which dropped seven spots from the #4 spot last week down to #11 this week. It's a bit of a shame to see this amazing WiiWare release already falling down the chart.

With the addition of Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 2 we did see Overturn drop off the Top 20 this week. We'll just have to wait and see if it can make its way back onto the chart in the future.
