Announced during Guerilla Collective’s livestream, Shashingo is a new photography game with the aim of helping players learn to speak Japanese.
As you might expect, gameplay consists of walking around a small open area, taking pictures of items in the environment, and then learning the Japanese word for said item. You can study learned words by looking at your in-game photo album. Shashingo also has reading and listening lessons and a “Find Mode,” which tests your knowledge of the words you’ve learned.
Check it out in the trailer below:
While we weren’t given a release date, Shashingo’s trailer said it’s “coming soon.” It will be available on Switch and PC.
