Nintendo Brain Games: new are coming

New Nin­ten­do brain games will be launched in Europe short­ly, with titles such as The Pro­fes­sor’s Brain Train­er: Log­ic, the Pro­fes­sor’s Brain Train­er: Mem­o­ry, and Ubisoft­’s Mind Quiz, all try­ing to build on the suc­cess of Brain Age.

Inter­est­ing that the arti­cle calls them “intel­li­gence-test­ing games”. We have seen no pub­lished or in-the-works sci­en­tif­ic data sup­port­ing that those games are in fact any good for our Brain Fit­ness, either as Brain Fit­ness Pro­grams or Brain Fit­ness Assess­ments, but fun they are. As the Brain Fit­ness mar­ket matures, we will need to dif­fer­en­ti­ate between Brain Fit­ness Pro­grams with pub­lished data and clear, mea­sur­able, results, and Games whose main val­ue lies in entertainment.

You can read our pre­vi­ous Brain Coach Answers post on why cross­words and sudoku (or Nin­ten­do BrainAge) aren’t suf­fi­cient brain exer­cise.
