Dear WaniKani Community,
Due to my previous experiences learning the English language, I intend to improve my japanese by playing japanese games, taking meaningful sentences as crutches for grammar and words alike. Obviously, I quickly learned by starting up a random japanese game, that japanese is a completely different beast to English, meaning I’ll have to start probably around where I started with English ten years ago. As I should have expected from the start, to be honest, considering that Japanese seems to have little crossover with western languages in general.
My question, therefore, is what level of Wanikani should I expect to require to play the following games/series, ordered in expected difficulty:
Kirby (From Triple deluxe onwards)
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 1/2
Final Fantasy 4
Fire Emblem 6/7/8
Tactics Ogre: Let us cling together.
Additionally, do you happen to have any further recommendations, in particular between Fire emblem and Tactics Ogre? If the English translations are anything to go by, then the Jump in difficulty between those two is going to be harsh. Furthermore, should any of them be reordered?
By the by, if you happen to have recommendations for the Grammar levels I should aspire to before starting any of those games, those would be greatly appreciated, as well as any other recommendations, with difficulty in mind.
I thank you for your time!
