Radio waves are all around you.

However, what you might not know is that, at any and all times, mysterious little creatures float around near these waves.

They're called "Denpa" Men. You can't see them normally, but you can find them and catch them with your Nintendo 3DS.

This is a role-playing game in which you collect Denpa Men to form a party, and use this party to explore dungeons.

Each radio wave territory has its own completely unique Denpa Men, and no two of them are ever the same!

Their faces, bodies, and personalities are all different, and some of them even have special skills and strong points.

There's a practically infinite number of variations!

Sometimes, you'll even find Denpa Men who are exceptionally strong.

Try searching in lots of different places to form your own team of these wonderful tiny critters, and take them on an adventure to rescue a certain special someone from the clutches of the King of Evil!

Its a fun title. I played the demo a while back. I wasn't sure if it would go out of Japan.

Man oh man, I want to see this reach Europe.

In fact I'm surprised America got this one first, I think it'd probably do better over here.

I can't find the demo anywhere on the eShop. Anybody know what's going on?

I love this game! I was already planning on buying it, but the demo sold me 100%.

The graphics are a lot better than I thought they'd be (the Denpa men themselves are kind of Mii-ish, but the environments have a nice smoothness, and the enemies look great).

It's basic JRPG stuff, but that's certainly not bad. I'm not completely thrilled with the fact that you can't pick your moves individually (it's an "auto" battle, and each turn all you do is tell your Denpa men whether or not it's ok to use special abilities that turn), but I suppose that'll help introduce newcomers to the genré, and it may be a blessing in disguise (it appears your party grows after each mission, so picking each individual move could get cumbersome).

Oh, and you can transfer your demo save data to the full version. As I said before, I love enemy design (looking at you "Oink Knight" )

Just beat the first boss.

The game oases personality and reminds me of Dragon and Blue Dragon in terms of presentation. The battles are fun andvery quiclly paced with simple mechanics that are great for a beginner of the genre to grasp but looks to have a hidden looming like depth when it comes to catching and getting a party of Denpamen ready.

The quality and charm of ththis games just makes me wonder why did nintendo cancel Genius Sororitys wii game that was in development.

Time to spend mytime grinding a strong party until next week.

I can view my QR codes but I'm not sure how to import them into the camera software so I can post them.

I'm very happy this has a demo available. it was intriguing, but not quite enough for a sale on its own. i'll be trying it out later (if I can pry myself away from La Mulana, anyway :3)

So what your saying is it's the easiest & mildest of most rpgs?

What's a JRPG? Junior Role Playing Game?

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

JRPG = Japanese Role Playing Game. An RPG made in Japan, in other words.

After playing around with it a bit more, you can pick each Denpa Man's moves individually, as well as the "auto battle".

as Sony_70 said, I'll do a little level grinding, as well as stock up on items, before the game fully hits, so I'll be ready!

@Undead_Terror, the dungeons aren't randomized (at least the first one, which is in the demo). I've went back to it a couple times, and it always has the exact same layout (I personally don't like randomized dungeons, so it's a plus for me).

I liked the demo, the game has a Mystery Dungeon meets Pikmin meets Dragon Quest feel to it.

I like the fact that you can transfer everything to the real thing too, I'm starting to like my denpa men.
This may be the first demo I play more than once!

Just a question, every file starts with the same denpa man (Randolf w/ Revive magic), or is it random when you start the game?

Meowph, that's right!

@Morphtroid - I got Gerard with Revive magic and a black suit. Also he has horns on the side of his head.

I'll be messing around with this for a while, odds are I'll get it.
It could be an error but here it lists it for 6.99. http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/31782 I know the official site says 9.99 so it will be interesting to what it will cost next week.

Oh so you get a random denpa with Revive, nice.
Randolph is orange, btw.
Oh, and the first denpa I caught has my father's name, lol.

I certainly hope it's 6.99, but it will probably be 9.99.

Anyone knows how obtaining different denpas works?
Is it true that you get different denpas depending on your location?
It all sounds quite interesting. I'd love to hear how this system works.
