New RPG Hopes to Teach Players How to Read Katakana

Tons of people want to learn Japanese, but unlike some languages, it requires a great deal of extra effort to learn how to write or read it. This is due to multiple types of writing, such as katakana, kanji, and hiragana.

Learn Japanese to Survive! Katakana War is the latest in the “Learn Japanese to Survive” series and, as the name suggests, focuses on katakana this time around. Players engage enemies by reading katakana to defeat them.

Those interested in giving this educational game a shot can pick it up for $6.99 on Steam. If you opt for the Deluxe Edition, which comes with a study guide and art book, then you’ll spend $10.37 instead.
