The DS already has a bunch of kanji learning programs (we count at least five), but what about those who want to brush up on their Japanese as a whole? Enter Capcom, whose latest DS title aims to teach proper Japanese.
At least that's what the Megaman publisher's latest game seems to be about. Official details on "Tadashii Nihongo DS" haven't been given out -- not in Japanese, and certainly not in English -- but seeing as how the title translates to "Proper Japanese DS," we're probably not too far off.
As a note, rather than attempting to appeal to the small, but important, but small (but important), group of foreign-born Japanese learners out there, this game is probably meant to help brush up the language skills of native Japanese speakers. We'll let you know how much it helps the non Japanese type once we've gotten our hands on the title.
And that will be... well, we're not sure just yet. Tadashii Nihongo DS appeared out of nowhere today on a list of titles to be shown in the Capcom booth at the upcoming Games Festa 2006 in Osaka, which is sort of like the Tokyo Game Show except a $250 bullet train ride to the south from the world's biggest city (rather than a $6 train ride to the east), and on a much smaller scale. We're talking tents here!
The game will presumably be playable at the Osaka game show, but aside from that, we don't have a release date.
