Touch Generation Games on Nintendo DS Lite

For immediate release April 2008

Touch. Make Contact. Feel a Connection
Touch Generation Games on Nintendo DS Lite

Not a hard core gamer, why not try the Nintendo DS Lite. This handheld console is perfect for people on the go. Unlike computer based tools you can learn as you go: on the bus or during your lunch break.

Its innovative touch screen offers simple interaction that inspires a wide range of possibilities. It is also educational, with Nintendo's Touch Generations exercising your brain. The Touch Generation series allows you to immerse yourself in games that promote production.

The range of Touch Generation Games offers everyone unique and accessible ways to play with the Nintendo DS Lite, representing a bridge to a wider audience. Some may remember Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training, which keeps your mind feeling sharp with daily brain exercises such as basic math, syllable counting and reading.

Brain Training was just the start. Nintendo has revolutionized gaming with even more learning titles, making a fun way for kids to learn or to keep the adult mind on the ball.

Dr Kawashima returns with More Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain? This latest installation features fun new training exercises including; Correct Change which challenges you to work out the right amount of money to hand back after a transaction as quickly as possible, Missing Symbols, a twist on the classic '20 calculations' test, and Masterpiece Recital which invites you to follow a music sheet shown on one screen and touch the corresponding piano keys on the touch screen.

Check out Big Brain Academy, which is also available on Wii, where the mini games are as simple as finding matching pairs, counting coins and memorizing numbers. But as the 60 seconds tick down and the difficulty of each mini-game increases, you'll feel your palms sweat.

If numbers are your thing, why not try Dr Kageyama's Maths Training: The Hundred Cell Calculation Method which helps refresh your basic math skills for school or everyday life. The key principal is repetition which, according to Kageyama, stimulates the brain. The math exercises range from simple one digit math problems to slightly more complex three digit challenges.

Another great Touch Generation Game is Sight Training™: Enjoy Exercising and Relaxing Your Eyes. This game helps train your visual abilities, teaching you to relax your eyes through fun and dynamic exercises, while helping to keep the five aspects of your vision in good shape.

Simple, fun and ultimately addictive – Touch Generation Games on Nintendo DS Lite
