Brain Age 2 boxart is BLUUUUUUUUUE

We don't necessarily make a post about the box design for every new game, but we pretty much had to for Brain Age 2, for the following reasons:
  1. It's a huge game
  2. We are too weak to resist the obvious joke (see title)
  3. hahahaha bluuuuuuuue
We don't know if it's possible to be as excited about the return of Brain Age as the Japanese public continues to be, but we eagerly await the return of our teacher, friend and constant source of Photoshop inspiration, Dr. Ryuta Kawashima's Disembodied Polygonal Head.

1. It's the joke that keeps on giving. I sincerely hope they make fun of it in the game.

2. If I'm not mistaken, the Euro boxart for "Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training" is also blue, though a much softer blue

3. First of all, it's not a joke. It's a meme.

And second, you said the 'joke' wrong, idiots.

4. Oh, I'd love to hear this. How did I wrongly comment on the fact that Brain Age has a hard time understanding the word 'blue'?

5. i wonder if this was on purpose or not. from what i head this sequel does voice and handwriting recognition very well and leaps and bounds better than original.

to bad its coming out same day as Metroid Prime 3. I would buy it, but Metroid is going to have all my time and when i'm away my brain will not be ready to be tested it'll be wanting more metroid (assuming its awesome). Should of come out July
