Everyone’s favourite dog, Snoopy, is dog-paddling his way to the DS shortly, in a game that promises to teach users English. Yes, a dog teaching you English. Well, at least it’s not hamsters!
English Lessons With Snoopy allowes gamers to use the stylus to touch all items in a scene, and view the English spelling and pronunciation, triggering animated actions within the scene. Snoopy’s joined by Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang, who can help you through English-training minigames, slide puzzles and even a Charlie Brown dress-up game. So that’ll be several different yellow zig-zag shirts then?
Of course, being a game revolving around teaching English to non-English speaking users, we’ll be mighty lucky if it sees the light of day in the US or UK. A Snoopy game that teaches you Japanese, on the other hand, would be something I’d be very interested in playing…
