    Uh, no clue what any of that text says. I can't read a single character of the language myself. Though kanji are considered more advanced, and some developers try not to use too many of them in games aimed at younger audiences. Like Phoenix Wright has a lot more than Pokemon.

    I know for the JAP version of Phantom Hourglass you can tap on the more complex looking words and the simplification will appear.

    I wouldn't mind learning chinese if it had a game like this. haha.

    Yeah, it's called "furigana" and it is the hiragana of how to pronounce a specific kanji. It is useful for kids or if the person doesn't know Japanese, since they probably know the word, just not the symbol for it. And having the furigana allows them to "spell it out"

    I was wondering when this would show up.

    The original KanKen DS was probably the best kanji practice tool released on the DS. This one looks like more of the same but with a dictionary you can use to look at information about individual kanji.

    Like me, I've played the 1st one and thought it was great and this one looks even better.
    Its great if you got a free 15 mins to kill and want to practice kanji.

    Awesome saw this game in the store, and then in a commercial! Im getting it for sure! 1st one was good but was lacking stroke count and what it looks like above for a dictionary like thing. For example if there was a new kanji introduced you had to just think of the stroke order yourself, sometimes was wrong sometimes was right. Really sucked for the one when you are given a stroke in the kanji and have to write which number it is and you dont know it properly
