Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training for Nintendo Switch got an update this week that adds a new mode, as well as the first online ranked championships for the brain training exercises.
First, players who are able to reach the Brain Age Score of 20 years old will be able to access a new mode called Working Memory Challenge. For those unfamiliar with the Brain Age series, 20 is the best score you can earn in all the brain training exercises, and means that your brain is functioning as quickly as a 20 year old’s.
That said, the patch notes state that there is an alternative method to unlock the Working Memory Challenge, which will be hinted at in-game.
The second part of this update includes the World Brain Training Championships, an online ranking-based tournament. The tournament actually started yesterday, and those planning to compete will need to join and play by the end of today. You can access the limited-time ranked test via Daily Training. That said, you will need Nintendo Switch Online in order to participate.
Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training for Nintendo Switch is available for the Nintendo Switch in Australia, Europe, and Japan. A North American release has not yet been announced.
