Everyone is getting into the Brain Training market, but Sega’s game has an interesting back story. Brain Assist is actually Touch de Uno DS, which is a variation of the arcade version of Touch de Uno. It’s almost as if the arcade game was coming to North America!
There are ten mini games in Touch de Uno with mostly rudimentary brain teasers. In one game you spot what is different between two pictures and another has math puzzles. After Touch de Uno DS was released in Japan this past June, I thought a US release was unlikely. However, Sega has been rather proactive with localization recently and you can expect to play the US version sometime in Spring 2008.
