WiiU-Brain-training-960x497The first DS game to hit the Virtual Console service on Wii U is Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain?

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced in January that the company planned to revive titles from the original DS software catalogue via Virtual Console releases for Wii U, having overcome technical hurdles to bring them to the big screen.

Originally launched in May 2005 and known as Brain Age in Japan and the US, the game is credited with helping bring DS to a wider audience, having sold 19 million copies worldwide.

CVG’s Brain Training review concluded: “Superbly tailored to make the most of the DS’s special bits, the only thing really letting things down in the lacklustre presentation. Ignore that though and you’ve got another unique, absorbing game to whack in your DS.”
