Nintendo has revealed that it is resurrecting the million-selling Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain? Series (known as Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day! in North America) on the Nintendo Switch.
The game has only been confirmed for Japan at present, but given the massive global popularity of the series, we'd imagine that a western launch will be forthcoming. The game will be known as Train Your Brain: Nintendo Switch Training for Adults in its homeland.
The trailer above shows how the Joy-Con IR camera will be used to detect the shape of your hand, while the Switch's touchscreen will allow writing input via a bundled stylus. Elsewhere, players are pitted against one another in a counting challenge with detached Joy-Con.
Notifications will also be possible when the Switch is docked, via vibration and the controller LED. It looks like this is the first game to make use of this new feature, which was introduced in the latest firmware update.
The game launches in Japan on December 27th with a retail price of 3,480 yen for a physical version which includes the stylus. A download version will cost 2,680 yen, and we're assuming you can use a third-party capacitive stylus with this just fine.
In the meantime, let's remember when Terry Wogan (RIP), Julie Walters and Patrick Stewart promoted the DS version on UK television.
