Just in time for the imminent back-to-school frenzy, test preparatory company Kaplan has unveiled their new game aimed at high schoolers: FutureU, a SAT prep game for Nintendo DS.  Following the success of BrainAge, a popular edutainment series geared towards older adults, more game and application developers have been uncovering potential in turning gaming consoles into educational tools. FutureU, expected to hit the shelves soon, features 1,200 questions broken down into SAT categories, such as vocab and reading comprehension. Kaplan stresses that the game does not feature *actual* SAT questions, but we’re pretty sure it’ll still be hit with parents and over-achievers alike.
