Sigh.

I know it's not exactly the most exciting game, but I hate when companies pull a completed game just before launch.

Can they just send us the streetpass puzzle?

I echo your sigh. Was really looking forward to it. Aww!

I can understand that if the game released this week, it might be overshadowed by other great titles (and me agonising over whether or not to pick up FEA); but if it releases in September, as GAME seem to suggest, that overshadowing would be a heck of a lot worse! If, on the other hand, it released during a games drought in summer, I might buy it.

But then I suppose we're not really the prime audience for this title. Ho hum.

After seeing this review, I don't give a flying fart about this. Not that I did before, you understand.

And yes, I'm aware that CGR Undertow reviews aren't very comprehensive.

The big kick is that DBT is a system seller - maybe not, as Balla says, to gamers like us, but certainly to people who would not buy Luigi's Mansion 2, or Fire Emblem Awakening, or Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins.

Is it still a system seller, though? As that review said: the original Brain Training was a hit well before everybody and his dog had at least five smartphones each.

Nintendo haven't shouted about Nintendogs this handheld generation, after all.

Probably not in vast numbers, no. Embarrassed

In a cruel twist of fate, I had found myself getting into the DS original over the last few weeks, and as a result had decided to place a pre-order for this last Friday.

That's two games (this and Scribblenauts Unlimited) this year that I've wanted that have been taken away from me on the week of release. Bandit.

Just started the US version of this. No videos can prepare you for how absolutely tough this game is.
Apparently, I have a brain of a 70 year old, and if I want to share that info with the world, I can send it to others via Streetpass. How nice! Shocked

I'm guessing this game has been cancelled indefinitely for Europe?

This is strange because I was reminded of its existence when rewatching an older Nintendo Direct a few weeks ago: Shibata was playing it and the in-game voice commands had a British accent, implying localisation work was either completed or moving along at the time.

Heck, I'd even welcome it coming back as a cheaper download-only game if they really want to sell it in the end as a quieter release with no marketing budget assuming all the work has been done. Seems like the perfect game to have its own permanent place on the home menu.

It's about time this came out. Barring a lot of late announcements, there's not much out on 3DS this holiday season (though Smash and Pokémon ORAS may be enough to be getting on with!)... let Dr. Kawashima fly free, please!

RESURRECTION!

Tried the demo of this and maybe it's my mind becoming frail but this seemed brutal, started off ok but as soon as the difficulty was ramped up I crumbled under the pressure. Think I'll go for it though, love a bit of brain training when I get in to it and I reckon this might be quite good when I get the hang of it.

I've played, beaten and deleted the demo. Slightly more tempted to get it than I was, as my enthusiasm had totally drained during the many, many years of waiting. There's a version of Dr. Mario on there, which could be fun. If there's Sudoku, too, I'll be sorely tempted. Final thought: Dr. Kawashima is a disembodied head with a floating pair of hands.
