Dr. Kawashima to ... cell phones?

Millions of DS users have found themselves charmed by Dr. Kawashima. Afterall, he's not bad looking for bodiless head, and he's a doctor. Mom would be so pleased!

It seems, though, that the popular handheld is not enough to keep the good doctor satisfied, since later this month he'll be debuting on European cell phones (or mobiles, as they call them in those parts). The Brain Age ripoff game, called Brain Coach with Dr. Kawashima, will be licensed by Namco Bandai (not Nintendo), and will use daily exercises to track your level of brain aptitude. That sounds familiar ...

And to think, we actually believed his sweet, encouraging words as we struggled with our math equations! When all this time he was just looking for younger, slimmer handhelds to play with. We thought you were different, Dr. Kawashima, but you just had to go and break our hearts.

Nintendo wouldn't license any game on another platform, DK Atari and CDi don't count.

Hmmm,

That's interesting. I doubt it would be the same experience as the DS, however. In any event, I doubt it would be enough to sway buyers of the DS to say you can get "Brain Age" on your mobile.

Meh,
