    Playable for those who don't know Japanese, just requires common sense.

    Its not the main mode though, just one of them. The main mode is more akin to Typing/House of the Dead, only an word comes up in Japanese and you'll have to write it down in English but this game sounds like one that people who can speak English can play as not only does the word come up on the screen but it is also spoken to you! So in a way it acts as some kind of spelling bee sort of game.

    This game even in Japanese could help a lot of people here with their English, and I'm not talking about those who English isn't their first language.

    It could also improve your stylus-writing skills.

    The original The Typing of the Dead taught me to touch type like a demon so I didn't get eaten by zombies.

    [​IMG] No comment on that....

    But I'm glad you think it'll be playable for non-Japanese speaking folks, since the game looks like a good bit of campy fun.

    Hey thanks for the link. Still as quircky and silly as it should be.
    Typing of the dead was the best typing game ever.
    Zombies can really teach ya know?

    Really gotta have Japanese of the dead, just gotta have it.

    We should start a petition.... in Japanese...
    Really really poor Japanese xD
    Maybe they'll listen.

    This could still be used to teach young kids some proper grammar (and some 'Tempers too [​IMG])
