Body and Brain Connection challenges players to exercise both mind and body in the most cerebral and energetic party game ever from the originators of the video game brain training craze.

Body and Brain Connection, known in Europe as Dr. Kawashima’s Body and Brain Exercises, is being developed under the supervision of renowned Japanese neuroscientist, Dr. Ryuta Kawashima. In addition to his neurological work in Japan, Dr. Kawashima has also supervised the development of several best-selling games.  Dr. Kawashima’s previous video games proved to millions around the world how fun it can be to train your brain in just minutes a day with simple brain puzzles.  His newest research shows that, in addition to simple daily mind exercises, brain activity is also jump-started by physical movement, resulting in Body and Brain Connection.

Players of all ages must think fast and act even faster as they respond to maths, logic, reflex, memory and physical questions using the full-motion capabilities of the Kinect sensor. 

In Body and Brain Connection, move your body to exercise your brain using the Xbox 360 Kinect device. The game invites you to follow a program of simple physical coordination exercises to improve your brain age. Multiplayer gameplay lets friends and family join in the series of fun, lively body exercises and compare brain age scores.

Body and Brain Connection includes over 20 different activities in single player and multiplayer modes.  Up to four friends can compete in fun and engaging activities as they strive for the youngest brain age.
