Dr Kawashima's Brain Training Launching 3 January In Europe

The news comes after a Japanese reveal earlier last month.

Nintendo have announced that the previously revealed Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training will indeed be making it’s way to the West, with the Switch title dropping on 3 January 2020. The retail version will also come with a stylus.

The various exercises within the game will make use of all of the Switch’s functionality, including the right Joy-Con’s IR sensor.

There’s a number of games players can tackle including:

  • Finger Calculations: Solve maths problems using your fingers. Even if you know the answer in your head, you’ll need to react quickly!

  • Sudoku: Enjoy the classic number puzzle game.

  • Calculations: How fast can you do simple sums one after another?

  • Rock, Paper, Scissors Test: Try to win – and lose – using your fingers in rounds of Rock, Paper, Scissors.

  • Word Scramble: Combine letters to form words.

  • Photographic Memory: Remember the photo previously displayed.

  • Dual Task: Leap over hurdles while choosing the biggest number.

As well as those games, there’s also multiplayer modes where you can hand a Joy-Con to a friend or family member and compete for high scores. You’ll also be able to share your results via ‘Brain Training Email’ - how this will work exactly is yet to be revealed.

The competition doesn’t end there though, as Nintendo will apparently be holding regular Brain Training World Championships in the future.

Check out a trailer for the game below:
