Richard Walker

By now, your cranium should be a veiny, pulsating, bulbous mass if you've been playing Dr. Kawashima's Body & Brain Exercises on a regular basis with Kinect, and you'll no doubt be thirsting for new challenges to help grow yor mushy glowing lump of grey matter throbbing away in your brainpan. Guess what? You're in luck!

Namco Bandai has announced that there will be two new exercise packs to add to player's brain training repertoires, introducing new modes and activities. Higher Learning I is available from the Xbox Live Marketplace now and can be added to your download queue here. It adds the Endless Edition mode, which throws exercises at you and keeps going until you make an error, as well as a host of other new exercises.

The packs also add activities for the new Duel Mode, that pits two players head to head in a battle of wits. Higher Learning II is out at the end of April. Check out details and screens for both packs below:

  • Nice to see they are supporting this....I guess.
  • I don't even have Kinect LOL! Heard the game was mediocre, so I would give it a pass anyhow:-P
  • I'm surprised that little LightBuld guy hasn't been made into a Pokémon yet!
  • Although I think this is a great game to stimulate kids minds etc I want some hardcore kinect games to be released. I'm still playing and happy with Adventures, Kinect sports, EA sports active 2 and Dance Central. Looking forward to the Gunstringer and Star Wars though.
