With the success of puzzle games like Sudoku and brain-teasing games such as Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day, publishers are looking to capitalize on gamers' new interest in their noggins. The next subject invading handhelds appears to be spelling, as Crave is getting set to test gamers' orthography.

The publisher has announced Spelling Challenges and More! for the DS and PlayStation Portable. The game is due out this summer and will retail for $19.99.

The game will feature a game show mode hosted by Mr. Niceguy, who will award prizes and cash for correct answers. Other modes include a variety of word games revolving around the 25,000 words in Spelling Challenges and More!'s memory.

It wouldn't be a proper spelling challenge without a little competition. Gamers can also try their hand at Ubisoft's Spelling Spree, due out in June on the DS and Wii.
