One of the more unique titles in Nintendo’s Touch Generations series id Miru Chikara o Jissen de Kitaeru: DS Ganryoku Training, renamed Medicara for a supposed US/EU release. It comes out on May 30 in Japan and Medicara is a collection of reaction and observation tests. Here is a quick look at what you do in Medicara.

 

Shuffle

The game starts by showing players an O and then hides it in a green box. The box with the O switches places with other boxes and you have to keep your eyes on the box with the circle in it.

 

 

Count C

There are C’s in different directions shown on the two screens and you need to count the “C”s.

 

Top and Bottom C

A C is quickly flashed on the top and bottom screens of the DS. You need to see if the Cs shown were rotated the same way or if they were in a different position.

 

Number Touch

The top screen shows a number and you need to quickly hit the same number with the touch pad on the bottom screen.

 

On top of having basic observation tests, Medicara has seven “sports training” reaction mini games to play.
