Nintendo’s Big Brain Academy series is getting a new game this December 3rd, 2021 on the Nintendo Switch. Like its predecessors, this is a puzzle video game that will assess and measure the players’ brain depending on their performance.
Play together in 4-player Party mode, improve your Big Brain Brawn score in solo challenges, and enjoy online fun with other brainiacs when Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain! comes to the Nintendo Switch family of systems on December 3, 2021!
For those unfamiliar with Big Brain Academy, the game has you playing puzzle minigames that will test you in a fun and engaging way.
Minigames include memorizing a series of numbers, identifying an animal as it slowly comes into focus, or helping guide a train to its goal. Generally, the faster you are in selecting the right answer, the better your resulting scores will be.
Big Brain Academy will feature up to 4 players couch co-op matches that will see them competing for the high score. Additionally, the game supports two player touch screen battles.
Get your own Big Brain Brawn score with a fun test. Boost your skill and speed by practicing certain activities. Of course, you can also prep for your next multiplayer brain battle or compare scores with friends and family. Unlock dozens of outfit options for your in-game avatar—from a cat outfit to a corn costume!
The most notable feature is a reference to the game’s title “Brain vs. Brain.” Players can record their results, which is then shared as “ghost data” that others can compete against. This allows you to challenge other players’ scores asynchronously.
You can play against ghost data with family and friends or even with anyone else worldwide. Nintendo Switch online is required for online features, however.
