With the release of English Training for the Nintendo DS earlier this year in Japan, Nintendo is taking another step in language game play by announcing their next language based game., Gakken DS Otona no Gakushuu: Kindaichi Sensei no Nihongo Lesson.
Gakken DS Otona no Gakushuu: Kindaichi Sensei no Nihongo Lesson (basically that’s Japanese for Kindaichi Sensei thinks your Japanese sucks) claims it can teach you Japanese. Your skills in Japanese are tested by various games and activities while all your progress is monitored by the host, Kyorin University’s Professor of Foreign Studies Hideho Kindaichi.
For those of you who are interested in picking up this game, it seems to require knowledge of Japanese and basic kanji to navigate the menus. The game is expected to be released in Japan in February.
AMN will keep you updated.
