Today Japanese gaming site Game Watch released a few details about Ryoukiki no Susume, an edutainment game for the Nintendo DS by Taito. Reportedly, the game's objective is to "increase the number of usable hands" for the user.
In Ryoukiki, players are encouraged to use the hand they normally don't. That is, righties play with their left hands, and lefties play with their right. The idea is to activate the less-used hemisphere of the brain--in left-handers, the right hemisphere is said to dominate, and vice versa.
This is accomplished by running users through a series of touch-pen-based minigames using their wrong hand. The games range from easy tasks, like popping colored bubbles with the touch pen, to more difficult challenges, such as dragging a cursor around the screen to collect certain shapes while avoiding others. The game will use the wireless capabilities of the DS for head-to-head competitions and ad hoc play and to distribute a demo version of itself to other players.
The game is set for release this December.
