Description

Shujinkou is the first video game to truly interweave Japanese language learning into a fully fledged role playing game (JRPG). Gameplay mechanics found in Shujinkou include [1] Experience a grand story that involves the loss of language and its enveloping effects on the world. [2] Strengthen your bond with side characters and demons, learning about their lives while steeling yourself for the battles ahead. [3] Master different parts of Japanese (grammar, intonation, radicals, and more) through in-depth minigames that help flesh out the world. [4] Learn Hiragana, Katakana, and hundreds of Kanji in the main story, as well as nouns, verbs, adjectives, and more! [5] Enjoy visuals inspired by Ukiyo-e art and dynamic music inspired by top games in the genre.
