Classic and new exercises!
Test your skills with an assortment of exercises in different playstyles, such as holding your Nintendo Switch console vertically and using a stylus or your finger, or using the right Joy-Con’s IR Motion Camera, which detects the shape of your fingers.
How old is your brain now?
Calculate your overall Brain Age Score by performing a series of back-to-back exercises that challenge your information processing speed, short-term memory and self-control. Why not compare Brain Age Scores with friends and family, too?

Challenge your friends and family
Using a Joy-Con each, face off against friends and family in unique challenges, or show off your results with others around the world!
The history of Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training series can be traced back to 2006 – when Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain? released on Nintendo DS. Some of you may have memories of this time! Its concept was inspired by the research and published works of Japanese neuroscientist Ryuta Kawashima. It became one of the most successful games on Nintendo DS, and has since had more entries in the series, with each one bringing new exercises.
It’s now time to think ahead with fresh challenges and ways to play with the unique features of Nintendo Switch!
