Hiragana Pixel Party Coming to Switch

An interview with the Ultra Hyperball developer has revealed that their language learning title is headed to the Switch sometime in the foreseeable future.

A game about learning the Japanese alphabet in a fun and interesting way, Hiragana Pixel Party is here to show you and tell you about Japanese characters and then have you tap the correct ones in time to the music. It’s a great way to engage your memory, reaction speed, and rhythm skills – and can even be fun for those who don’t give a lick about learning a new language.

Featuring both Hiragana and Katakana – the basic building blocks of the Japanese language – Hiragana Pixel Party will give you six pieces of music to play along with over the course of 200+ missions. Players should be able to pick up the skills required to read and pronounce any Japanese word written in these alphabets, and the creators are sure they’ll even have fun doing it.

Are you up for a Hiragana Pixel Party? As a Japanese learner, I know I am! The game is headed to the Nintendo Switch thanks to Springloaded Software, and appears to be one of their short term projects. While we don’t have any real information about a release date, I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be hearing something soon.
