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.
