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!

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.

Don't worry I'm sure you guy's will get it in the UK (Europe) lol at some point.

Besides I don't know why you guys are really complaining I mean you guys got both art academy & freakyforms back in July plus sparkle snapshots over there already lol we still gotta wait til Oct 1 over here. Granted only a few weeks away now. But still... Art academy & sparkle snapshots I really want. This is annoying having to wait this long for both titles especially knowing there technically already out.

Did you ever notice that the UK & US nintendo's seem to do a trade off like we get some thing then a month later you guys get the same thing & vice versa or is it just me noticing this.

It will hit the UK eventually lol I'm going to go enjoy the demo! :D

Bye! lol :D

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

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" :P)

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)

I liked the game. I hope no one takes offense to this when I say about the game but this is my impression of it like what one of the other user's said the character's do look like mii's but they also remind me alot of the teletubby characters with the antenna's on there head & especially in the different colored outfits but in a cute way. :) As far as the graphic's goes there very good. The catching denpa men thing & the fighting stuff remind me alot of pokemon for GB. I've only played one pokemon GB game so I'm comparing it to the best gameplay of my knowledge as far as the gameplay goes overall though pretty decent game. :)

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

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

What's a JRPG? Junior Role Playing Game?

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?
