Brain Age: Nintendo Switch Training

Nintendo has announced Brain Age: Nintendo Switch Training for Switch. It will launch on December 27 in Japan for 3,480 yen at retail and include an official Switch stylus accessory, or 2,680 yen via download. The stylus will also be sold separately for 864 yen. A western release was not announced.

Brain Age: Nintendo Switch Training is the latest entry in the puzzle game series that began on DS in 2005. In addition to the standard exercises featured in the series thus far, there are also exercises that utilize the IR motion camera to read your hand motions, as well as two-player competitive exercises. New elements such as an alarm to schedule training, e-mail summaries, online leaderboards, and world tournaments have also been added.

It should be noted that five total exercises that require the Joy-Con are not playable on Switch Lite, and that the game is not compatible with paired Joy-Cons, the Joy-Con grip, or the Switch Pro Controller. It is only playable with the Joy-Con sideways.
