    Does anyone have a list of games that teach Japanese? Dictionaries, Kana, Kanji etc? If you don't know
    the Romaji (English Text) Kana/Kanji is fine. I can read Kana, and Kanji I can just copy and paste what I don't know.

    Here is what I have so far:

    0405 - Kanji Sonomama Rakubiki Jiten
    0501 - Minna no DS Seminar Kanpeki Kanji Ryoku
    0584 - DS Kanji no Shou
    0773 - Quiz! Nihongo-Ou
    0795 - Simple DS Series Vol. 10 - The Doko Demo Kanji Quiz
    0796 - Nazotte Oboeru Otona no Kanji Renshuu
    1281 - Hissatsu Kung Fu - Kanji Dragon
    1305 - Maru Kaite DonDon Oboeru - Kyoui no Tsugawa Shiki Kanji Kioku Jutsu
    1361 - Ukkari o Nakusou! Bunshou Yomi Trainiing
    1480 - Zaidan Houjin Nippon Kanji Nouryoku Kentei Kyoukai Kounin - KanKen DS 2 + Jouyou Kanji Jiten Review
    1825 - Zaidan Houjin Nippon Kanji Nouryoku Kentei Kyoukai Koushiki Soft - 250-Mannin no KanKen Review
    1890 - Yomesou de Yomenai Kanji DS
    2001 - DS Kageyama Method - Tadashii Kanji Kakitori-Kun - Kondo wa Kanken Taisaku Dayo!
    2100 - Mondai na Nihongo

    Any additions, and or comments about a game appreciated!

    I made a list once, hoping to make games reviews (on the idea of this website), but I didn't test all the games, there a too many.
    Some of them may be wrong (I added only with seeing a screenshot of the game, so expect a lot of game to be bad or not a teaching game)

    There may be too :
    1158 - Zelda no Densetsu: Mugen no Sunadokei
    it is a nice game to read kanji (when clicking on a kanji, it will show the kana pronunciation)

    Playing games you already know may be a good start too.


    I Hope it will be helpful [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for the help. Guess I'll have to update my list. I'll have to check out the others that maybe fall into the Learning Japanese category and post my results.

    0796 - Nazotte Oboeru Otona no Kanji Renshuu (J)(WRG) and a few others are soooo not for foreigners, most are for native speakers looking to touch up on kanji, grammar, vocab, etc (and others for kids)

    Sorry but most of them are designed to compliment a basic knowledge of the language rather than teach you flat out.
