Dr. Mikio Hiraiwa-Supervised Yomu Tore GO!

Something Good Corporation has announced Japanese reading skills training game Dr. Mikio Hiraiwa-Supervised Yomu Tore GO! for Switch.

Dr. Mikio Hiraiwa-Supervised Yomu Tore GO! was developed for players with dyslexia and reading skill improvement. It aims to train those skills via three methods: by reading letters aloud through with the bundled microphone; by recognizing letters as units of sounds; and by turning sounds into letters. There are a total of six games that approach this training from various angles, which are made up of 54 levels and 227 stages.

A set including the game, a Quick Start Guide, and a Hori “Karaoke Mic for Nintendo Switch” will launch in early July in Japan for 15,000 yen. The Quick Start Guide includes a download code for 90 days access to the voice recognition AI program, as well as to the “Respond with Voice: Hiragana / Katakana” and “Respond with Voice: Kanji” games, and stages two and four of each level in the “Eat Some Sushi” and “Shiritori” games. To continue using these services after 90 days, you will need to pay a separate usage charge. It should also be noted that Switch Lite is not a supported device.
