Common Sense for adults

Nintendo has announced Common Sense Training for Adults, to be released for DS this October in Japan.

The next in the series from Nintendo, whose Brain Training titles have sold a combined total of around five million copies since the series' debut in Japan a year ago, Common Sense Training will pack over 2,000 common sense and trivia questions into its tiny cartridge.

There's no news yet as to whether the game will be endorsed or designed by a reputable Japanese professor (Brain Training was), how long you'll need to play it each day or what parts of your brain it's aiming to beef up.

Although, we suspect it won't feature anything as complex and befuddling as "If copies of Common Sense Training leave Japanese shelves at a rate of three per minute while traveling in an easterly direction, will the game be released in the US before December?"
