Kinect Your Body and Mind With Namco

I was wondering what would come out of Tokyo Game Show 2010 this year and was excited when a certain game title by Namco called Body and Brain Connection was announced, which is a small part of the many titles Microsoft has lined up for the Kinect.

It starts out with three basic tasks you must complete in order to figure out your starting age, which is not the same as your Wii Sports age because it accounts for the mind as well as the body. So if you're thinking this is another Wii Fit rip off because Namco has made a lot of Nintendo games, you'd be wrong. The first task involves using your arms to mimic the hands on an analog clock. In the next exercise, you use your arms to form bridges for cars to safely make it across the expanse of the screen. Finally, you must use your brain to solve math problems then kick the corresponding soccer ball with the correct answer into a goal.

You will also be able to create custom exercises to work on, reassess your initial brain age, and participate in "Today's Exercises", which is a contemplation of your favorite exercises. Something else that's cool is that you can do all this alone and then chastise your friends in group play later. You can be expecting to see Body and Brain Connection exclusively for the Xbox 360 in spring 2011.
