Braining-training video game for older folks

In an effort to "broaden its customer base amid falling profits," video game maker Nintendo is targeting Japan's growing gray market with "Brain Training for Adults," a number and puzzles game that Nintendo says stimulates the brain.

You can read a review of the game here. Note that at the end of a round of questions, the game tells you your mental age (literally "brain age").

Nintendo hasn't announced any plans to localize the game for the American market, but if you want to encourage them to do so, the company can be contacted online here.
