Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day (NDS)

Brain Age 2 has 15 new, intensely engaging activities designed to give your brain a daily workout. Millions of men, women, students and seniors worldwide picked up the original Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day game, ushering in both a new genre of video games and a new audience of players. Brain Age 2 includes a fresh set of tests for people who enjoyed challenging themselves with the original.

"The point of the original Brain Age was to jolt users' brains out of complacency by challenging them with a variety of fun activities," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day expands the benefit and gives you mental tests you've never tried before."

You don't have to have played the original to enjoy Brain Age 2, which offers activities like winning (or intentionally losing) at rock, paper, scissors; repeated subtraction of a small number from a larger one; quickly making change; unscrambling letters to form a word; and playing notes on a virtual piano keyboard. With 100 new sudoku puzzles and ways for users to compete against friends and family members, Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day appeals to everyone, no matter their age or prior experience with video games.

Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day retails at an MSRP of just $19.99. It also is available bundled with a new dual-toned Crimson/Onyx Nintendo DS Lite at an MSRP of $149.99 at select retailers.
