Nintendo Switch Training
While many people thought the series was either dead or about to make a comeback as a mobile game, Nintendo have announced a brand new game in the Brain Age / Brain Training series for the Nintendo Switch. It’s called Nintendo Switch Training, and it will be released on December 27th in Japan. Quite interestingly, nothing has been announced for Europe and North America yet.
Nintendo Switch Training makes uses of the various features of the Nintendo Switch, including the touchscreen and the IR Camera of the Joy-Con. The exercices making use of the latter will not be playable on Nintendo Switch Lite (since it lacks the IR Camera), unless you get a Joy-Con separately (if you don’t already have one).
Here’s the debut trailer and the overview trailer for the game:
The game will be available in two editions:
- retail (including touchpen): 3 480 Yen + taxes, which is quite cheaper than the usual Nintendo game at retail
- digital: 2 680 Yen + taxes
- touchpen (standalone): 800 Yen + taxes (available via the My Nintendo Store)
Finally, here’s some pictures for the game:

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
The latest official blog post for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is now live. This one is from Ryo Nagamatsu, who came to talk about the music of the game: click here to check out what he had to say!
Here’s an excerpt:
The advantage of playing one melody with one instrument is that changes in expression or how the melody is played are easier to feel because they result in a more direct change in the music. As a result, we can make the melody wonderful on its own without tweaking it or making the arrangement more extravagant. Old games only had few tones anyway, so in that sense it’s really a straightforward remake.
And here’s the Accolades Trailer for the game:
Finally, here’s the latest video from the Domino King, featuring The Leend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening!
