Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training has come under fire on BBC's Watchdog program for failing to recognise accents from the North.
Deemed important enough to take up a five-minute slot on Monday night's show, Nintendo and its DS game, Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training, were under the spotlight of presenter Nicky Campbell. Campbell went as far as saying that Brain Training "clearly discriminated against" certain accents, especially Northern and Scottish.
