    ...Huh.

    Well this is defiantly different from the other Genius Sonority games thats for sure... Technically speaking this would be the first spin-off of gen V, though something bigger would of been nice. Don't get me wrong I'm not whining or anything, but a typing game...?

    This game looks absolutely fantastic. Importing it as soon as pre-orders open.

    D:

    I want it. They must export this.

    So it's to teach Japanese kids how to type in English? I suppose it works as an English helper too.

    I would have thought the first Pokemon game on the 3DS would have been a bit...more...amazing.

    So, we get a typing game, eh? We've had lots of typing games with other brands already, but finally Pokémon decides to do it? This sounds interesting.

    A typing game.
    They should have made a mystery dungeon or a ranger for the 3DS!
    Not a game for little kids to learn english.
