Odd, I saw something about this last E3, but had forgotten all about it. Anyway, Sony are now talking about it, and it seems like it’s going to be quite cool.
“Launching this fall, Smart As is a social brain-training experience that will put your brain to the test with 20 unique, engaging, tactile and highly interactive puzzle games,” says the US Blog. “This next-gen puzzle game will also enable you to share your stats with players from around the world using a robust set of social and connective features.”
Smart As is under development at XDev, and will take advantage of Vita’s touchscreens, camera and AR functionality, covering arithmetic, logic, language and observation-based puzzles.
Like in Nintendo’s Brain Training game on DS, Smart As will calculate your “overall Brain Power” and then you can go online to “see how smart you are compared to your friends, people that you’ve met through near, players in your city, country, continent and the entire world using the Smart As leaderboards.”
