[GAME Watch] In a press release announcing its European lineup for the next three months, Nintendo made sure to include a couple of surprises. Last Window: The Secret of Cape West, the DS sequel to Hotel Dusk (developed by the now-bankrupt CING), will bring the first game's unique style of sketchy ...

Remember Otona no DS Kao Training? Non-game. Free camera. Facening. Well, the folks at French site JeuxActu are just absolutely goshdarn convinced that Intelligent Systems' face training non-game is packing its bags and heading to Europe during Q2 this year. As Nintendo has yet to pass official comm...

We couldn't help but giggle when we saw this article on "facial yoga" that described it as the hot new craze. It's certainly not new to us DS hipsters; after all, we've already got a game dedicated to stretching and firming our faces, and since the practice is apparently the latest it-exercise (de...

Infendo's Dale Rubin is undergoing a bold experiment: diving headfirst (obviously) into the science of facening. He picked up a copy of Face Training and is dutifully contorting for his facial health and for our education. The experience sounds rather a lot like Brain Age for faces, with Facening sp...

Nintendo has added three new Face Training commercials to their official site; thankfully, the new commercials are all relaxing and enjoyable and not loaded with unintentionally nightmarish visuals. Nintendo is lucky (or smart) for making a game that requires players to contort their faces during...

Ever since we heard about it, we've been waiting to see Face Training in action. The DS muscle control game program just launched in Japan, and three commercials show it off. We're amazed. A camera connects to the GBA slot, and the DS perches on a stand, pointing the lens at the player user. Face Tr...

If anyone would enjoy a video game about face exercises, it would be The A-Team's Templeton "Faceman" Peck, right? He'd be the first to tell you that when you escape from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground where, today, still wanted by the government, you survive as a soldier...

This promotional piece for Face Training has a bit of an infomercial vibe. Seems pretty appropriate for a wrinkle-reducing video game, doesn't it? The demonstration gives you a pretty good idea of what using Face Training is like: the game presents some kind of face for you to make, and a soothing...

There's something unsettling about the way Nintendo's Otona no DS Kao Training commercials highlight the faces of their subjects to point out improvable areas. Maybe it's that the red tint, stained over their mouths and eyelids, resembles the exaggerated, sloppy make-up we've come to associate with...

It is possible that some of you may be persuaded to buy Face Training. This is assuming two things: first, that you would like to have a stand, and second, that something other than Adults' DS Face Training, homebrew or official, will make use of the DS camera. A distant third possibility, that you ...

Even with a diminished E3, there's no controlling the wave of rumors that hit the Internet every year before the show. Why fight it? From now until E3 hits, we'll be posting one piece of wild speculation every day. Some may be patently ridiculous, and others just might turn out to be true. Even so...

If you guessed any kind of game at all, sorry. If you correctly identified that as a trick question, then you win at DS fandom. That's right, the DS Lite is getting an official camera peripheral, and the first piece of software to use it is Otona no DS Kao Training (Adults' DS Face Training.) In fac...

Nintendo seems to be starting at the brain and slowly working outwards when it comes to training. Their latest Japanese training title translates roughly to Face Training, which has you training with the use of a new Nintendo DS camera. We don't know if the game recognizes when you are doing the pr...
