Demon Training, the new Brain Age game that was released in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS a few weeks ago, is headed to North America. Nintendo of America announced the news via Twitter this afternoon.

 

No, “Demon Training” doesn’t mean that you’re going to be raising monsters or striking a deal with the  devil. The game’s Japanese title is indicative of the difficulty of some of the game’s exercises, which are meant to help train your memory and concentration. As a result, the game will be titled Brain Age: Concentration Training in North America.

 

A demon is present and accounted for in the game, however. A demonic version (above) of neuro-scientsist, Dr. Ryuta Kawashima, whose work has inspired the Brain Age games, is your guide.

 

Brain Age: Concentration Training will be released on December 3rd in North America. Hopefully, the localized version of the game retains Demon Kawashima and doesn’t replace him with regular Kawashima.
