Duolingo to learn Japanese?

I'm a native English speaker and I really want to learn Japanese so I was wondering if anyone knows if duolingo will come out with a new language, Japanese. I tried to just to the Japanese speaker to English but was so lost I couldn't get anywhere.

It will surely come out with Japanese, but no one knows when it will come out? :D

They're good Japanese apps in the Google play store(I had one even though I had no real interest in learning it). I started hello Chinese two days ago and it's good (they stole duo style ;) hehehe). if you learn mandarin it'll help you a lot with your Japanese when you do decide to start it.

Except for the fact that the pronunciation is different and the meanings may vary. But who cares? ;D

Japanese would be difficult to implement on Duolingo. I've read that it may not be currently possible with the way the site is made or something like that due to the three scripts that Japanese has. That and the fact that it is also remarkably different to other languages but it wouldn't be completely out of the question.

The English for Japanese speakers course is the very first step that leads us to Japanese for English speakers. We could expect the course sooner or later!
