Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training Arrives in Europe on 12th April

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Our old brains will need to wait

While Brain Age: Concentration Training will encourage youthful and focused brains in North America soon, it seems Europeans will need to wait until 12th April. Snappily titled Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training: Can You Stay Focused? in the region, it will arrive as both a physical and downloadable retail release.

With a focus on short, challenging exercises to improve focus and concentration in an age of excessive multi-tasking and multiple distractions, this release will adopt a slightly different approach. Nintendo's announcement on the EU release was accompanied by details of the Devilish Mice test, which tasks you with tracking the paths of multiple mice all at once. That's one example of the exercises to be included; there'll be 30 exercises and mini-games, 18 of which are brand new.

We recently gave our impressions of the North American Brain Age: Concentration Training demo, which proved handy for sharpening minds. For those of us in Europe, we'll have to carry on with our weary old brains for a little longer.

Ha! Back when this was out in Japan, and we only knew it as "Demon Training", I predicted that it was going to be translated as "Devilishly Difficult Brain Training" in the west, lol.

I see I was very close (well, for at least one region). TBH, this title would have worked for the U.S. as well (If I'm not mistaken, Kawashima still keeps his Oni/Devil appearance in the US version, so now people will be more confused & likely to make a fuss, now that the joke has been removed from the title).

I'm really glad that PAL regions will be getting a more appropriately titled version of the game. The original Brain Training was a day 1 buy for me back in the day, but I skipped out on Brain Training 2 due to its fiendish difficulty. I'm quite anticipating this instalment though.

As a Christian who played the demo, I don't like that whole devilized Kawashima.

Oh well, I'm going to buy it anyway. I hope it actually does what's advertised.
