Nintendo continues their conquest of "casual gaming" with Brain Age 2
, and they have a slick new DS color scheme to entice the boomers, non-gamers and assorted grandparents. The new DS Lite has a crimson top half and a gloss black bottom half, an interesting color combo for a Brain Age bundle. This new color style can only be purchased in the Brain Age 2 bundle, but personally I think the black/red scheme is more appropriate for something like Resident Evil or that rumored Quake 3 port.

Nintendo News: New Nintendo DS Color Comes Bundled with Brain Age 2
Nintendo has found a way for people to exercise both their fashion sense
and their minds at the same time. The first new color scheme to hit the hot-
selling Nintendo DS(TM) system in the United States in nearly a year will come
bundled with Brain Age(TM) 2: More Training in Minutes a Day, all at an MSRP
of $149.99. The bundle hits stores Aug. 21.
The top half of the new Nintendo DS sports a smooth, glossy Crimson,
reminiscent of a dangerous shade of lipstick or a cherry-red sports car. The
bottom is a matte black -- an Onyx yin that complements the Crimson yang.
Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day is the sequel to the smash-hit
original that got baby boomers and seniors playing and redefined the concept
of what video games could be. This new title includes 15 fun new activities
designed to help users exercise their brains. It challenges players in areas
like math, memorization and even music.
The original Brain Age: Train Your Brain In Minutes A Day has sold 8.61
million worldwide, including more than 1.4 million in the United States alone,
while its sequel has already posted sales of 5.33 million in Japan. For more
