Nintendo has publicized the release of a new Brain Age game for Nintendo Switch. The game is set to, yet again, feature Dr. Kawashima’s digital face.
First disclosed in the form of a trailer, which was released on Nintendo’s YouTube channel, the video, which is in Japanese, displays a novel version of Brain Age where the activities are made so they make use of Nintendo Switch’s specific hardware. For instance, the minigame rock, papers, scissors, which is among the older Dr. Kawashima games, will now make use of the infra-red sensor in the joy-con to allow it to detect your actual hand, letting you make the appropriate signals yourself.
A mathematics game makes use of the same technology. The game asks you to display, through your fingers, the answer to the sums they challenge you with.
The trailer showed how players could play multiplayer games, using two joy-cons. They could also choose to play the conventional single-player using a stylus, similar to the series’ Nintendo DS games. The stylus will be made public, on the same day as the game, in Japan.
According to the trailer, the game will be launched on the 27th of December, this year. However, this may only be the game’s release date for Japan. The company will hopefully let fans know about the game’s international release soon.
Dr. Kawashima games were first featured on the Nintendo DS. They immediately became popular with a great number of non-conventional gamers.
