Brain Challenge and Bliss Island Hit XBLA This Wednesday


This week on Arcade is the minigame collection known as Bliss Island which features 2-player multiplayer – both split-screen and online – as well as the Brain Age-ripoff, Brain Challenge. It’s amazing it took this long, isn’t it? Publishers have been steadily pumping out Brain games (and training games of all sorts, for that matter) on DS since Brain Age proved to be such a success.

Bliss Island will cost 400 Microsoft Points ($5), and Brain Challenge, 800 points ($10). Both games will be available tomorrow. Hit the break for more details.
