SEGA joins brain game

Mental dumbells for DS.

SEGA has unveiled a new Brain Assist game for DS.

Predictably it SEGA's its answer to the Brain Training phenomena, and you will be able to test yourself on it next spring.

Rather than be stuck with a snooty old professor, SEGA will give you a choice of four nurses to accompany you through the game, as you strengthen your powers of remembering things like birthdays, concentrate on things like nurses, react more quickly to things like horses, deduct things like who the murderer was, and analyse things like if this makes any sense.

Slightly more original is two-player co-operative mode where, like cheating in exams, your friends can help you get good marks, before showing you just how bad you would have been by squashing you in fast-paced four-player competitions over Wi-Fi.

Pop over to our Brain Assist gallery to see what it looks like.
