Learning Japanese may seem very difficult, but a new RPG has come to teach Kanji focused Japanese in a fun way! It’s called Learn Japanese to Survive! Kanji Combat and the game managed to reach full funding on Kickstarter within 6 days. According to their fundraising page:

Learn Japanese To Survive! Kanji Combat is an educational game, designed to be the ideal introductory course to the Japanese language! It’s the third game in a smash-hit series, following Hiragana Battle and Katakana War – but you don’t need to have played those!

This new game teaches you a separate part of Japanese: the Kanji writing system.

Compatible with PC & Mac, Learn Japanese To Survive! Kanji Combat is a spectacular mixture of learning, action, adventure and intrigue! Everything you need to start learning Japanese is contained within the game!”

For those who don’t know, there are actually 3 different sets of characters used in Japanese and they are Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Their previous games covered the first two styles of writing, but this title specifically focuses on the last one with the biggest set of characters. Although people have a hard time learning Kanji focused Japanese, this game will help with memorization by doing it in a fun way.

This game focuses solely on Kanji, the biggest set of characters. Kanji are unique pictorial symbols borrowed from the Chinese language. Because each Kanji is so intricately designed, many students find them hard to learn. This game will teach you the correct way to write and pronounce Kanji, and your memorization exercises will take the form of exciting gameplay!

This game features over 200 Kanji characters to learn and master. With this knowledge under your belt, you can begin reading and writing Japanese!”
