Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain launches for the Nintendo Switch system on Dec. 3 but a free demo is available today in the Nintendo eShop.

With the Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain game for the Nintendo Switch system, the new multiplayer* party game that anyone can play, you can boost your skills and speed by practicing certain activities while also having a blast! The full game launches on Dec. 3, but if you want to try your hand at some mind-tickling challenges today, a new free demo is available right now in Nintendo eShop and can also be downloaded from the official website! The demo will let you trial Stretch mode, featuring a sampling of puzzles that will test your abilities in three brain-bending categories: Visualize, Identify and Compute. If you purchase the full game when it launches, you’ll experience even more puzzles, including the Memorize and Analyze categories, too!

In the demo, you’ll also get to take Party mode for a ride. Up to four players* can go brain vs. brain to earn the most points by completing activities quickly. Each player sets their own difficulty from easiest (Sprout Class) to the most challenging (Super Elite Class), which means even the youngest kid can compete comfortably with adults in the family.

Of course, no academy would be complete without a professor, and the distinguished Dr. Lobe returns to Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain as your host. When you purchase the full game, even more modes are available, such as Test mode, where you’ll run through a gauntlet of five activities. Dr. Lobe will award you with your Big Brain Brawn score based on your performance, which will help you earn in-game coins. You can use these to unlock costumes for your avatar, proving once and for all you’ve got the hippest hippocampus.

If you need to train before the next match, there’s always Practice mode, where you can replay your favorite activities to try to earn high scores and medals. To see how your lobe stacks up across the globe, hop into Ghost Clash mode and compete against other users’ data.

Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain is now available for pre-order at select retailers and in Nintendo eShop at a suggested retail price of $29.99.
