Nintendo has announced Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain, the first entry in the long-running puzzle series for the Nintendo Switch.
Taking the form of a multiplayer party game, this latest outing pits family and friends against each other in a series of mini-games that will test wits and reflexes. Challenges will come in one of five categories: Identify, Memorize, Analyse, Compute and Visualise. Each activity can be played solo, or with up to three other friends locally or online.
There’ll be several game modes including Party mode where each player will also be able to set their own difficulty levels to keep things balanced. A Practice Mode will let you take on these challenges for high scores and medals to keep you sharp. There’ll also be a Test mode where host Dr Lobe will evaluate you and give you a Big Brain Brawn score. Do well enough, and you’ll earn coins to unlock new cosmetics for your avatar. Finally, you can also challenge the play data of family members friends or even random online players in Ghost Clash mode.
The last game in the series was 2007’s Big Brain Academy for Wii, which launched back in 2007. Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain launches for the Nintendo Switch on December 3 and you can check out a trailer below.
