Bottom Line: I probably haven't even "scratched the surface" on the potential this game due to my limited Japanese, even so this is an excellent learning tool, and I highly recommend it.
In this game, you select a kanji to write on the screen and you are graded. If you write something wrong, it tells you what's wrong, and you can fix it. Thus, this game not only helps you learn kanji, but helps give you better handwriting. :) Of course, when you select the kanji, the game tells you everything about it: The number of strokes, the stroke order, its on and kun readings, its definition, and it even gives you compound words. Again, this is ALL IN JAPANESE (hiragana, katakana, and kanji with furigana), so if you cannot read Japanese and understand what you're reading, you may not find this game as helpful.
But for me, someone who can chat in Japanese all day but can't remember kanji to save my life, this game has been very helpful. Best money I've ever spent towards learning Japanese.
I play this game on the 3DS XL, and since this game was made for the DS, writing on a bigger screen is kind of uncomfortable. It's hard to write nice characters when they have to be 10 times bigger than a normal character on paper. Still, the learning gets through, so it's okay.
