After a week's break, Japan is back to business as usual with the new year's first batch of new releases. This week's offerings are a bit sparse compared to previous weeks, however, and few titles are currently making much of an impact in terms of preorder numbers. Next week promises to much more eventful, with big names like .hack//G.U. Vol. 3, Gears of War, and Shining Force Exa scheduled to make their debut alongside a selection of other awaited titles.
