New Game Spotlight: How To Date A Magical Girl!

Although it's a change of pace from learning Japanese, we wanted to highlight a very interesting new game! How To Date A Magical Girl! is a visual novel that looks calm and peaceful on the surface, but there are untold horrors lurking in the depths...

You attend a prestigious magical academy and make friends with five very attractive and talented magical girls. Do your best to win their affection by giving them gifts, spending time together and working hard to get through the school year. However—things soon take a turn for the worst when one of your fellow students is brutally murdered. Your world shatters in an instant and from that moment on, nothing is quite the same...

How To Date A Magical Girl! is available now on Steam:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/881560

We're taking the time to highlight this game because the talented composer behind Learn Japanese To Survive! Kanji Combat also produced the soundtrack for How To Date A Magical Girl! Alec Shea has outdone himself with a soundtrack that perfectly captures the magic behind this new game. If you're a fan of visual novels, do yourself a favor and check out this genre-bending game that pulls no punches!

About This Game

Learn Japanese To Survive! Kanji Combat is an educational game, designed to be the ideal introductory course to the Japanese language! It's the third game in a smash-hit series, following Hiragana Battle and Katakana War - but you don't need to have played those!

This new game teaches you a separate part of Japanese: the Kanji writing system. Everything you need to start learning Japanese is contained within the game!

Japanese is a language that can be very daunting to begin learning. It contains a unique alphabet of intricate symbols that can be very confusing to newcomers. How do you write these symbols? How do you even pronounce them?! If you're asking yourself these questions, don't worry - that's completely normal!

Learn Japanese To Survive! Kanji Combat is your ticket to easy Japanese learning!

Learn over 200 Kanji characters! With this knowledge under your belt, you can begin reading and writing Japanese!

At the start of each of the game's chapters, you'll learn a new set of Kanji characters. Following that, you're free to go on adventures and explore. You'll encounter dangerous enemies that have taken the shape of Kanji. To defeat them, you'll need to correctly translate them! If you give the wrong answer, your attack will be reflected and used against you. It's a learn & live situation!

Much like the other games in this series, you will also have the opportunity to learn some Japanese vocabulary! You'll see how words are constructed using Kanji, and learn the translations of useful words and phrases.

Features
