As we type, the world's crazy time differences mean that Wii Fit has been available in Japan for, ooh, a few hours at least.

How will it fare? We don't know for sure, and as our closest friend isn't a De Lorean-owning, wavy-haired scientist, the best we can offer is a guess. That said, the 300,000 preorders reportedly taken by Japanese retailers prior to the game's release tell us that Nintendo has probably just conjured up another mass appeal mega-hit. If all of those preorders are honored, that would also make Wii Fit a bigger opening week success than a certain other title, but we won't dwell on that, as it's proven a touchy subject recently.

Check back with us next week for the full lowdown on precisely how many Japanese people are precariously poised on their Balance Boards.
