Nintendo of Japan planning a spatial awareness game? (Update: Yes, for WiiWare)


btraining.jpgWhile North America only sees a limited selection of Touch Generations titles, Nintendo of Japan keeps rolling out software for the Brain Age crowd. Theta, Otona no Joushikiryoku Training DS and Tashiten: Tashite 10 ni Suru Monogatari, a numeric puzzle game, are some of the titles we’re missing out on. The logo you see on the right might be for another one of them.


Nintendo of Japan registered Katachi no Game: Maru Bou Shikaku (Game of Shapes: Ball, Stick, Square) as a Japanese trademark a few months ago. So far it hasn’t been used and like all trademarks it might never be. However, there official looking art that came with the registration probably means they will… sometime.


A game of shapes… what could it be?


Update: Walaber knew and explained in the comments this was actually announced in Nintendo of Japan's original WiiWare line up. However, the game had a temporary name of Maru Bou Shou was temporary name. Katachi no Game: Maru Bou Shikaku is the final title. Mystery solved! Thanks Walaber!
