First set out now

Dr Kawashima's Body and Brain Exercises is the only game on Kinect that makes your brain sweat as much as your body, but if you've come to the end of your gaming diploma you might want to check out the Xbox Live Marketplace for some further education.

The first downloadable content for the game is available now, called Higher Learning I, for 400 Microsoft Points. Containing two brand new exercises as well as modified versions of four minigames included on the disc, it might be worth a look if you want to squeeze a bit more from Dr Kawashima's mental game.

The end of April sees the release of the second pack, titled Higher Learning II, with another two new minigames and variations on existing games. The full list of what you get for your points is right below this full stop.
