After several weeks of near-inactivity, Japan's release schedule bounces back with a solid multiplatform lineup. Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus-bundled Wii Sports Resort leads as Amazon.co.jp's most-preordered title for this week. Given the continuing sales chart popularity of the original Wii Sports game, Resort can be expected to remain a top regional seller for weeks to come.

The Xbox 360 will soon host Arc System Works' 2D fighter BlazBlue, G-Rev's shoot-em-up Mamoru-kun wa Norowarete Shimatta, and Prototype's text-based adventure title Time Leap. Agarest Senki Zero and Gust's Atelier series sequel Rorona no Atelier: Arland no Renkinjutsushi highlight this week's offerings on the PlayStation 3.
