About

Learn Japanese To Survive! Katakana War is an educational game that is the ideal introductory course to the Japanese language! It's the sequel to the smash-hit Hiragana Battle – but you don't need to have played that!

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

Compatible with PC & Mac, Learn Japanese To Survive! Katakana War launches you into a journey full of learning, action, adventure and intrigue. All you need to start learning Japanese is contained within the game!

Japanese is an exciting and interesting language. It looks a bit complicated to learn, right? After all, there's all those weird and wonderful written characters to memorize. Where do you even start to learn them? How do you remember which is which? If you're asking yourself those questions, don't worry – that's completely normal!

The best way to learn a new language is with a learning tool that's going to keep you interested, challenge you at the right pace, and most importantly, keep you coming back for more. Learn Japanese To Survive! Katakana War is your ticket to easy Japanese learning!What is Katakana?
The Japanese language combines 3 different sets of characters to form written works: Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji.

This game focuses solely on Katakana, which is frequently used to write words with a foreign origin, as well as names of people, places and things. That makes it incredibly useful!

With this game, you'll learn to read and write every single Katakana character! You'll master pronunciation and be able to write words in no time at all.How does the game work?
At the start of each of the game's chapters, you'll learn a new set of Katakana characters. Following that, you're free to go on adventures and explore.

You'll encounter dangerous enemies that have taken the shape of Katakana. To defeat them, you'll need to correctly translate them! If you give the wrong answer, you won't deal any damage. It's a learn & live situation!

On your adventures, you'll also learn Japanese vocabulary! You'll see how Japanese words are constructed with Katakana, and the translations of useful words and phrases.

Luckily, you're not alone on your adventure. You'll make friends who will study with you and join you in battle. If you bring them along on lots of adventures, your friendship will strengthen and they'll unlock powerful abilities.Game features

Learn Japanese To Survive! Katakana War reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
[Seventh assessment] To see more evaluations in the same vein, go to my curator page. Good reading. Yay, an educational RPG! To give you more context: I started to learn Japanese before heading to the land of the rising sun, and... I was a little too reluctant to learn the different alphabets so far (must be said that they do not really facilitate the task with their systems of complex symbols). Yet you suspect that once the keys of comprehension are written in hand, it is much easier for you to learn vocabulary, to exchange with Internet users on the other side of the world and to translate frivolous dōjins (what I do not do, It goes without saying... not at the moment). So it is with this objective in line of sight that I embarked on the adventure katakana and its relatively bearable cramming thanks to "learn Japanese to survive!". I confess, you had to think about it. Like many other J-RPGS with a turn-based combat system, you have to defeat your enemies and conquer formidable bosses, not only with your physical and magical skills... but also and especially thanks to your knowledge duly developed during "pseudo-courses" in class, taught by your Sensei of modern times. In the program, 5 signs per lesson (10 in some cases) and a small adventure to put into practice what you have learned. The goals are very simple: defeat X enemies, get to such a place, defeat untel... and to advance, you will have to give the sound equivalent of the katakana signs that assault you. Of course, the more you learn, the wider the spectrum of monsters will become. Take notes as the lessons go, it will save you from spending 20 laps looking for the relevant equivalent among about fifty proposals. Apart from the educational aspect, some anecdotes about Japan and phrases/passwords everywhere, do not expect a story and quality graphics. The game was created on RPG maker with basic resources, the universe is ultra-flat/simplified and insipid/boring dialogues. To tell the truth, I just spam the buttons "Skip" when the characters talk to each other, and have no shame to confess. I think that the accent has not been put at all on the merits, and that only the form is synonymous with quality (since the progressive learning of the characters pushes us to finish the game). I recommend this game only for its "practical" look. It is not extraordinary in itself, and those who learn the signs online will probably not see any use for it. For my part, it allows me to do the cramming and sinking (to the hammer) these damn katakana that resemble two-three details close! What I appreciate: 💹Le learning system, rather effective. 💹Le content "bonus" (PDF writing guide and art book) what could have been improved: 💢L ' history, scenery and personalities of the characters.
