Demon Training Demo Heads to the Japanese 3DS eShop

Get a first look at Dr Kawashima's demonic floating head

Last week we reported that Nintendo would be broadcasting a short Nintendo Direct conference dedicated entirely to the upcoming 3DS game, Dr Kawashima's Demon Training. The broadcast featured examples of some of the puzzles on offer, which can be seen listed below, as well as some disturbing footage of Satoru Iwata's and Dr Ryuta Kawashima's enlargeable, bobbing heads.

The evening wasn't without its surprises, as Iwata revealed that the demo of Dr Kawashima's Demon Training will be available now for Japanese gamers to experience on the 3DS console's eShop. If any of our readers are lucky enough to be in Japan at the moment, let us know what you make of the demo.

Today Nintendo has also announced that Demon Training download cards will be available in 7-Eleven shops throughout Japan for anybody that wants to buy a digital copy of the game. New Super Mario Bros. 2 will also be available to purchase via download card.
