Discover Your True Self With Nintendo DS Matchmaking Game


“Lifestyle” games are still going strong on the Nintendo DS. Today will see the release of a game titled What’s Your Type?


Yes, that is kind of what it sounds like — it supposedly “scientifically” predicts your personality and tastes. The publishers call it a “matching game” on the cover.


What’s Your Type reportedly combines Meyers-Briggs-style personality assessment with Kokology (the study of the mind), and the Enneagram, a model of human personality. The game has three single player modes: Quick Snap Shot, 24 Animated Questions, and Accurate Comprehensive Profile.


There’s a two-player mode, too. This one provides a 10-15 compatibility assessment of you and the other player. What’s Your Type is out today comes out on March 1 for $20.
