Finger Gun Games is developing Ohayou! Beginner’s Japanese, a Wii U eShop game that will teach players the basics of hiragana and katakana.
If you want an introduction to the Japanese language, using your Wii U GamePad, you’re in luck with Ohayou! Beginner’s Japanese. The upcoming game will teach players characters used in the two types of Japanese syllabary systems, hiragana (ひらがな) and katakana (カタカナ) — also known as simply kana. (“Ohayou” in Japanese means “good morning.”)
Sensei Asuka and sensei Kenji will prepare players with on-screen flash cards to teach them the characters for each type of kana, complete with vocal pronunciations. Memory games will challenge players with 30 interactive tests.
A release date has not yet been announced, but Finger Gun Games will share more details soon. In February, we talked to the studio’s developer, Cordero Wilson, about his Minecraft-inspired Wii U eShop game called Stone Shire.
