It's been confirmed that a new entry in the Dr. Kawashima series is on the way to 3DS. Though no exact release date was given it's due in Japan this summer, with worldwide plans yet to be confirmed.
This new entry will focus on two key areas: concentration and working memory. It will consist of intense exercises to be completed in about five minutes each day, with the aim to overcome what Satoru Iwata described as 'information addiction'. The best part of this reveal was that Dr. Kawashima, or Professor Kawashima as he's known in Japan, will appear as a devil in this title, no doubt to motivate you to concentrate.
Did you buy any of the originals for DS, and are you interested in taking your training into the third-dimension?
That must be the face of the devil. lol
So much win....
Do they mean Brain Age & Brain Age 2?
If it'll help me with my dirt-poor memory, I'd get it.
So they've finally announced it. It was downl for pre-order on amazon uk for some time now strangely. Insta-buy all the way.
Hopefully I'll 'remember' to buy it. lol
I'm kinda looking forward to this. Sadly it's likely to be a retail title, these kind of everyday exercises are better as download software, so that you don't have to switch game card each day.
I love these brain games
Apparently Dr. Kawashima has been drinking blood out of human skulls again...
awesome i love those games
WHEN I USED TO PLAY IT IN 2006 I THOUGHT THAT WHEN YOU DON'T PLAY FOR A LONG TIME HIS FACE WILL LOOK DEVILISH! O_O"
A goddamn devil?
How does one come up with this?
Information Addiction: Old people saying young people are no longer satisfied with and able to hold attention on doing singular often repetitive tasks that aren't interesting, that is most jobs, because the internet provides too much variety too freely. I saw an interview... on Colbert Report was it? Where a person spoke on the subject about the internet bred generation while unable to focus on 1 singular often repetitive task as well, are able to multitask many smaller tasks more efficiently.
The problem I had with Brain Age 1 and 2, of which I did own, is that while I saw improvements in myself while using it (especially in mental math) it got so boring after a month I dropped it.
Also looking at Dr. Kawashima ugly mug got a bit tiring. Allow me to switch him out for a female counterpart.
Same here, I loved Brain Age but after 4 months or so they got boring.
I could use some of that training. I hope this a one of the franchises where DLC will flourish. That way we can get more exercises without a full retail sequel.
Is this Brain Training 3DS? Either way having him appear as a devil is needlessly stupid.
@espinozac7 They mean what they said, they're the ones who made the games.
Dr. Kawashima looks like a nutcase on that picture! Lol!
What @ville10(#8) said. I hope they either reconsider or make it available as a download and retail title. With the option to download it for free if you have the retail game.
