Nintendo has announced the return of a classic DS series, with Big Brain Academy: Brain vs Brain coming to Nintendo Switch this December 3. The brain-teasing series features interactive minigames designed to challenge your intellect, with the aim to improve your skill and speed over time.

This time the series has a whole batch of new games, these include memorising a series of numbers, identifying an animal as it slowly comes into focus, or helping guide a train to its goal to help stretch your grey matter. There are also new multiplayer modes, so you can challenge your friends locally with competitive games, aiming to get the highest score.

Another new addition is the ‘Ghost Clash’ mode, where you can tackle ghost data from other players online, so you can challenge your friend’s high scores, or just check the rankings and see how your brain fairs against the rest of the world. Pre-orders are already open, so you can fight your family with some brain-teasing puzzles ASAP.

Check out the reveal trailer below to get a glimpse at the latest version of the Big Brain Academy series.
