Nintendo has announced that the latest iteration of its Brain Training franchise has been delayed in Europe, days before its expected launch.

3DS puzzler Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training: Can You Stay Focused? (known as Brain Age: Concentration Training elsewhere in the world) was due to release in Europe on April 12, but has now been pushed back to an unspecified date.

Nintendo confirmed the delay in a statement to GameSpot. "Nintendo has made the decision to push back the launch date of 'Dr Kawashimas Devilish Brain Training: Can You Stay Focused?' for Nintendo 3DS to optimise the best possible launch timing of this title within the European market."

"We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope to announce a new launch date soon."

The handheld puzzle game has been on sale in Japan since July 2012, and was released in North America back in February 2013.

Optimize the best possible launch timing? You mean a date when nothing else is coming out?

Yep, that title and pic would not work here in the U.S. because then people would be like, "That game is the devil!"

I'm sure everyone is greatly distraught by great title's delay.


All those 12 people in Europe are worried.

Dr. Lucifer's Satanic Concentration Camp sounds like it could be really fun. I'm not sure how you're supposed to stay focused in those showers though.

Is it bad that when I looked at that news picture I saw Bobby Kotick at first glance?

These games train your brain about as much as doing a number 2 trains your back passage... they are a complete waste of time...

Ya this is the type of game that gets picked up on an impulse buy I don't see this hurting many people...

@silvergol Because Christians have taken over the department that creates these games and they want to portray intellectuals as evil.

@Xyllix The devs just probably thought it was more important to come out in America sooner, if you know what I mean

@Jennaralize Number 2 plays a major role in the digestive system. Ugly or not, we would die if we'd refuse to poop because it would be "a complete waste of time". On the other hand, you're right about this game, it is a complete waste of time.
