Nintendo touches generations

Touch! Generations range will promote unique and innovative new software for nongamers and those tired of sequels.


Nintendo has announced a new line of games that will go under the Touch! Generations brand seen at the Electronic Entertainment Expo. The Nintendo DS titles that feature the new label include Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training, Electroplankton, Big Brain Academy, and Tetris DS.

Apparently, this new range of software kicked off when the company released Nintendogs, so the upcoming Dalmatian & Friends Edition will also come under the Touch! Generations banner. The game is released in Europe on June 16, and Nintendo hopes to attract some of the 2.5 million people across Europe who have bought previous editions of Nintendogs.

Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes A Day is being renamed Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain? when it launches on June 9. Electroplankton and Big Brain Academy will follow on July 7, while Tetris DS is already available. The Touch! Generations Web site is available here.
