E3: Brain-training game from Harvest Moon dev

Hi! Hamtaro Ham-Ham Challenge confirmed

Harvest Moon developer Natsume will be publishing Hi! Hamtaro Ham-Ham Challenge for DS this summer, the company has revealed.

Designed for elementary school children (5-12 year-olds, we think) the game is designed to develop memory, word comprehension, maths and other abilities they tend to encourage in education.

Parents can also monitor their childrens' progress, so they know when to punish their little bundle of joy when they fail to get a high score in a spelling competition.

Whether or not responsible parents will believe that a game called Hi! Hamtaro Ham-Ham Challenge is educational remains to be seen. Screenshots below.
