When I was looking for pictures for that last blog post about DS games, I found this picture of Dr Kawashima FROM REAL LIFE!!He is the person behind the awesome game 'Dr Kawashima's Brain Training', in which you actually train your brain to make it smarter and faster at maths and various logical problems. It's a GREAT idea for a game, and is one of the front runners in Nintendo's advertising campaigns trying to make people aware that the DS is not just for nerdy boys. (the ads have people like Patrick Stewart in them! And Nicole Kidman and suchlike)
So anyway, the game is cool, and Dr Kawashima guides you through it somewhat in his usual pixelface guise. And I had never actually seen him as a real person before! Yay!
