New Japanese Wii game to teach common sense

Recently, Nintendo games have been training our brains, eyesight, and more, but they haven't done much for our common sense. Enter the new Wii title Minna no Joushiki Ryoku Terebi, which roughly translates to Everyone's Common Sense TV.

Japanese Web site Dengeki has pictures and info on the upcoming Wii title, which looks to teach everything from tie knots to geography. General knowledge of sports, cooking, manners, fashion, and more will also be taught in this title. I wonder if it will teach you to match your belt to your shoes.

Data for six players (and their Miis) can be stored. After training is complete, a sort of "common sense index" is offered, much like one's brain age in the Brain Age titles. It seems that the title will use the Wii's internet connection to pull down additional common sense lessons to keep you up to date on your manners.  

Minna no Joushiki Ryoku Terebi releases in Japan on March 6th for 4,800 yen. No domestic release plans were mentioned.

Do you think you could stand to improve your common sense? Or are you hopeless at this point?
