Oh, Brain Age. I almost forgot all about you. Probably because my long term memory has got to sh*t since I stopped playing Brain Age. But according to this morning's Nintendo Direct session with Satoru Iwata, it'll soon be time once again to flex those noggin muscles. Dr. Kawashima, the master brain behind the original Brain Age DS series, is hard at work crafting new games to test your memory and mental dexterity. And this time around, he's ready to inflict some serious brain pain -- so serious, they're referring to the as-yet-untitled game as "Devil Training" -- hence the doctor's new devilish look.
It should be noted that the game is only being referred to as "Brain Training-style" for now, as the title hasn't been confirmed. It's just being made by the same dude, with the same concept, for the same company, on their latest generation of hand held. Totally a gamble on the final name.
