Last month, it was revealed through Nintendo’s native market that the fan-favorite DS series Brain Age will be returning with a new installment for the Nintendo Switch exclusively in Japan later this December. With the line of mind puzzling trials hitting the current hybrid handheld console, Nintendo also made a return of the stylus to play the game as you would on the previous dual-screened handheld.
Now in a recent announcement from Nintendo UK, the upcoming project has been titled Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training for Nintendo Switch and plans to have a launch in Europe just a week after releasing in the eastern side of the globe.
As already reported that the approaching title will offer new minigames thanks to the IR camera on the bottom of the right Joy Con and other cooperative experiences thanks to the inclusivity of the Switch, Nintendo also revealed a few more games that will be available. Similar to the bird counting segment shown in the Japanese version, there is one with a selection of cubes you must remember and count correctly after being removed from the screen. As well as counting how many people are in a house and picture matching to be new additions to the series now.
Looking at how close releases are for both regions, it also leaves us to guess when the western hemisphere might receive the game follow the first week in January. This announcement also reconfirms that the game will be bundled with a specialized stylus if purchasing the game physically.
