Famous for being the 'hero' of a game series aimed at training your brain, the famous Dr. Kawashima is back in Dr. Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training: Can You Stay Focused? Offered to American and Japanese players in 2013, the title has surprisingly been absent in the European market. But it's never too late to catch up, right?

The game features a whole bunch of exercises to improve your concentration and your working memory, using up to 30 diabolical exercises, of which 17 are totally new.

Available as of today, this new game promises to be challenging to say the least. The developers advise to play it 5 minutes a day in order to get results, and the exercises must be done quickly, even though they're rather difficult. Take, for example, the "1 difference" mode. In this mode, players must solve a series of maths problems, but with an additional rule. Instead of responding immediately to the problem displayed on the screen, players must remember the solution and then, when the second problem occurs, they must enter the answer for the previous problem. Of course, by doing this, they must also solve the second problem and memorise its answer, and then enter it when the third problem appears.

And in addition to these training exercises, players can also enjoy the following content:

· Training Supplements - A selection of favourite exercises from previous Brain Training games, which complement the Devilish Training by also focusing on working memory and concentration
· Brain Training - These include card games, musical challenges and logic tests, some of which are new and some of which return from previous Brain Training titles
· Time Out - Relaxing activities designed to give your brain a break. Perfect after a tough Devilish Training session!
· Concentration Challenge - Test how long you can concentrate on a series of 2-Back Devilish Calculations. This is a toughie, and can only be attempted once per day!

A demo is available on the eShop right now if you're struggling to decide whether to buy it. Do you find Dr. Kawashima's brain training useful?
