The sequel to Brain Age (known as Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training - How Old Is Your Brain in Europe), this game adds several new methods of training your brain out of its tired state. It also includes new exercises to gauge the age of your brain, up to an ideal minimum of 20. This is based on neuroscientist Dr. Kawashima's research which suggests that the brain, like the body, benefits from regular exercise to keep it in shape.

The exercises include Missing Symbols, Masterpiece Recital, Word Blend, Word Scramble, Memory Addition, Days and Dates, Correct Change, Calculate the Height, Finishing Position and Determine the Time. It also includes Sudoku and a Dr. Mario-esque mini-game.
