Ohayou! Beginner’s Japanese heading to the Wii U eShop

Posted on May 27, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop

Stone Shire developer Finger Gun Games is prepping its next Wii U eShop release. With “Ohayou! Beginner’s Japanese”, the indie developer is making an edutainment download which promises to teach users the basics of Japanese Hiragana and Katakana.

Here’s an overview:

While the instructors Asuka and Kenji give you teachings on the TV screen, the player will use the Wii U GamePad to navigate menus and turn around digital flash cards to give them more details on a chosen Japanese character, such as its romaji relation and a vocal pronunciation of it. When you think you’re ready to test your knowledge, you can then participate in the memory games where you will use your finger like a sword to “cut” across the correct cards that match up with an indicated romaji or vocal sound. Master all thirty tests and you will become a Hiragana Samurai and a Katakana Ninja! Release date will be coming soon!

You’ll find some screenshots of Ohayou! Beginner’s Japanese below.
