What is Katakana?

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.
