    Finally a sequel (kinda) to Typing of the Dead!! Sadly it looks like its Japanese only as its an English trainer. Basically Japanese words come up and you'll have to write what it is in English. Would be nice if Sega brought this over outside of Japan but reversed.

    Typing of the Dead taught me how to truly touch type.

    When zombies are after you, theres no time to look at your hands.

    Wow, when I saw this on GoNintendo earlier this morning, I laughed at the concept. But there was actually a "Typing of the Dead"?

    Yep and it was real good fun too, even more so than the HOTD games. Sadly it killed two Dreamcast keyboards from me typing to fast and hard. There was also gonna be a Space Harrier Typing game for the PC but I think it got cancelled.

    I've played to death the PC version of Typing of the Dead. Way too easy for me...but so much awesome.

    Looks like it could be playable for English gamers as the words already come up in English (ala Typing) so you just need to write down the word you see instead of seeing it in Japanese and figuring out what it means. Might be a bit frustrating when it doesn't recognise certain letters though and you got a crap load of zombies after your ass.

    It's good for intermediate-advanced Japanese learners who are practicing at least their kanji.
    Might not be recommended to those who are not familiar with some of the Joyo kanji and with little vocabulary.

    The concept sounds funny, or even hilarious. Might be fun to give a try if it's playable without knowing japanese, but it's definitely not the kind of game I'd play for hours at a time.

    Well, this is the sort of thing that could get me to play an educational game.
