Hiragana Pixel Party is a welcome rarity: an educational game that's both good fun and an effective learning tool. If you've ever wanted to read Japanese — whether for language study, travel, or playing import games — this is a great way to get started, and an enjoyable rhythm-based runner with an excellent chiptune soundtrack besides. がんばって!
Hiragana Pixel Party is a rhythm game that ends up not standing out as such but rather thanks to its educational component, centered on the teaching of japanese characters. While its rhythm-based gameplay is too simple and shallow for its own good, the educational side is surprisingly fun and the game's retro aesthetics grant it a rather alluring look.

Hiragana Pixel Party's main issue is that it is just merely an okay rhythm game on the Switch eShop. Even as somebody who doesn't play a lot of rhythm games I have a hard time believing that there are not better games in the genre available for the Switch. If you're interested in learning Japanese, the game might be a solid investment but otherwise the repetitive nature makes it difficult to recommend to anyone who isn't both a fan of rhythm games and interested in learning Japanese.
If you're trying to learn some basic Japanese, then Hiragana Pixel Party is a great entry-level game on Nintendo Switch to get you on the right track. You won't end up learning complicated words or how to have a conversation, but it will definitely take you from not knowing anything to knowing some of it, right? And you'll get to do it in a fun way that actually works, either at home or on the go.
