“JRPG Japanese”?

JRPG Japanese: A Language Learning Adventure! is an RPG that teaches Japanese currently in the works! It specializes in vocab and phrases you’d see in JRPGs, while teaching Japanese grammar to help the reader understand how to read and make their own sentences.

All Japanese will be written in hiragana, katakana, and kanji with romanji for language learners of all levels!

This game is dedicated to those whose interest in Japan came from old school games, like it did me back in the 90s.

I sincerely hope it helps you through your journey as you study hard, level up, and then class up your Japanese language well enough to enjoy the same games you played that got you here.

I’m rooting for you!

Ever wondered how to say “Crap, my HP’s getting low…”, or “Bring it on, scumbag!”, or “This boss is ridiculously hard!”, or “Well, well, well. I’m impressed you made it this far.”? I got you covered, hero!
