A very interesting week. The bottom of the Top 10 is very close at the moment. Jump! Ultimate Stars passed both Pokémon Dungeon and Pokémon Battle Revolution and claims its spot in the Top 10 once again. This, however, didn't get Mario & Sonic out, so it just went up one spot instead. The new MegaMan recently released in Japan is doing mighty fine as well, directly into spot number 7 on this weeks chart.

The complete chart for week 48 of 2007 can be seen underneath.

Please note

- The number of connections listed in here is not unique connections, just the total number of connections for the service during the past week.

- These data are straight off of Nintendo's Wi-Fi site, through the freeware program WFCStatus.

- A Top 100 was released by me four weeks ago. A new one will be released later today.

---------------------This weeks Top 10---------------------

Right now I won't separate the list in DS / Wii, but I will do this, as more games get released for Wii.
New games on the Top 10 is written in bold. Games in italic haven't been released in America (yet).

Thanks again you kick ass for doing this every week.

So can someone confirm that Medal of Honor heroes 2 did NOT come out last week then in Europe? I think once its released there it will have a nice online community for a while.

DBZ 3 comes out today or tomorrow in the US so ill be interested to see what kind of boost it gets this week.

Actually, I saw one TV ad for MoHH2. I was very surprised at the time.
