SANTA CLARA, Calif., (Feb. 8, 2011) – Leading video games publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today released Body and Brain Connection™ for Kinect™, controller-free games and entertainment for Xbox 360®. Players of all ages must think fast and act even faster as they answer math, logic, reflex, memory and physical related questions using the full-motion capabilities of the Kinect for Xbox 360 sensor. From the originator of the video game brain training craze, Body and Brain Connection challenges players to exercise both mind and body in the most cerebral and energetic party game ever..
Body and Brain Connection was developed under the supervision of renowned Japanese neuroscientist, Dr. Ryuta Kawashima. In addition to his neurological work in Japan, Dr. Kawashima has also supervised the development of several best-selling games. His previous efforts with video games proved to millions of gamers around the world how fun it can be to train your brain in minutes a day with simple brain puzzles. His latest research shows that, in addition to simple daily mind exercises, brain activity is also jump-started by physical movement; thus resulting in Body and Brain Connection. The unique full-body motion Kinect for Xbox 360 sensor allows a player’’ body and mind to work in unison as they get off the couch to work out problems in their heads and complete the answer with specific physical actions.
Body and Brain Connection includes numerous activities in both single player and multiplayer modes.

In addition, up to four friends can compete in fun and engaging activities as they strive for the fittest brain. To stimulate players’ minds post-launch, downloadable content (DLC) will be available featuring additional exercises and challenges. Details regarding the DLC will be released in the coming weeks.
