Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training for Nintendo Switch is a puzzle game named after Ryuta Kawashima, a Japanese neurobiologist. The title was released by Nintendo and, like previous versions of the series (which was born in 2006 on the Nintendo DS console), it poses various intellectual challenges to players.
Dr Kawashima's Brain Training for Nintendo Switch consists of a series of mini-games forcing our gray matter to work. You will find here, among others, solving mathematical equations on time (Calculations, Finger Calculations), classic Sudoku, a puzzle consisting in creating words from received letters (Word Scramble), as well as challenges to check our memory. Besides, thanks to the Brain Age Score, we can test the efficiency of our brains by solving exercises to check our short-term memory and the ability to absorb new information.
In Dr Kawashima's Brain Training for Nintendo Switch you can play alone or in local multiplayer mode. For the purposes of the latter, among others, a game of bird counting (Birdwatching) and remembering the number of boxes displayed on the screen (Box Counting) was prepared. The Internet rankings, on which we can boast of our achievements, provide a substitute for competition with people from all over the world.
Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training for Nintendo Switch has an economical but clear graphic design that is no different from what we've been used to before. The title takes advantage of the advanced capabilities of the Nintendo Switch console, headed by the functionality of the right Joy-Con equipped with an infrared camera, thanks to which the game can recognize the shape of our fingers.
