We're checking with the developers for clarification on the "restocking" issue. Stay tuned, and thanks for bringing it to our attention. I'm assuming at this point that the demo works differently from the full version in terms of restocking (after all, you don't need massive numbers of DMs in the demo, while it sure does help you in the full version), but that's just a guess. We'll get it answered, so thanks!

Finally got all my Denpa Men to level 13! Still got a few days to go before it releases, so I'm going to try and get them to level 14.

I thought the demo was neat, and felt a lot like DQIX, which is a good thing since its one of the few RPGS I really enjoyed.
Sadly, I'll have to pass on this game for the moment, since I'm saving my eShop cash for Cave Story+ (it'll be my third Cave Story version, but I can't get enough of it...). But we'll see, I'll probably buy a card for this too.

@Philip_J_Reed Question? How does the 3DS pick up the wifi signal exactly? I mean it sounds kinda dubious to me.... Does it just detect Wifi signals or does it actually connect to the source? kinda confused, I wish this game was getting a simutaneous release out here in PAL territory, I will download the demo immediately when or if we get it over here.

I don't think it really tries to connecto to the sources, it simply detects them and gets random information from them.

Meowph, that's right!

@Morphtroid Yeah sounds about right, but I just want to see what @Philip_J_Reed says, but yeah you're probably correct.

I been playing the Denpa Man: Demo alot, mostly catching new Denpa man around I go, and getting some real rare ones.
To get new DMs, you need to go to new areas, and I don't mean around your house, but other places out there, like going for a jog or walk around your neighborhood, your bound to find new and even rare DMs with powers you haven't seen.
I wish the in-box that you hold you DMs in was bigger, but it is a demo and I'll just keep with I need and get rid of the rest.
From what I seen with the DMs: White and Black DMs are commen, Color DMs are uncommen, and Stripped Color DMs are rare.
But a DMs is only good when they have an strong Antenna power. Non-antenna DMs are good for just fighting, since thats all they can do.
This demo has really sold me on getting this game, but I did wish it would have a online battle just to fight other players DMs.

As hyped as I am for the game, I watched the trailer for the sequel (which just recently came to Japan's eShop), and I hope this one does well enough for the sequel to be localized as well.

The sequel has an overworld you can explore (instead of menu hopping from location to location), towns to visit, and side activities such as fishing & farming!

Okay, so I over-estimated it when I said I had 10 hours in the game...it turns out it was just 8 and change. Not a huge difference, but in the interest of honesty I'll point that out. Having said that, I finished the dungeon I was in, accomplished something (no spoilers for you!) and unlocked another handful of dungeons to explore, so that's 8 dungeons so far and it looks like there's space on the map for more. It's a lengthy adventure!

Also, I did figure out how to get into the treasure room in the demo cave. Just needed to explore a bit more.

How does the 3DS pick up the wifi signal exactly? I mean it sounds kinda dubious to me.... Does it just detect Wifi signals or does it actually connect to the source?

Yeah, it just detects them. No need to connect, it just detects that they exist.

You can upgrade it as you progress through the game, which is nice, as you can accumulate a huge pool of DMs and then just cycle them in and out of your party as needed.

They need do way instain mother.

So how long do Antenna roots take to grow or how many levels? I just caught 3 rare ones on the way home with them.

Not exactly sure, as I didn't take note of what level they were when I got them, but it's safe to say it takes around 10 or more levels for the root to grow. I've had very few of them finally sprout!

I've noticed that Denpa Men with antennas usually have lower health/attack than Denpa Men who don't. I guess it's the classic example of magic users not having as much physical power. Based on that, I'm guessing you'll want a party with nothing but antenna Denpa Men (you'll need a couple who can dish out the pain, after all).

On another note, I got 2 rare Denpa Men. Both are black, one has an invincibility ability, and the other one has a hailstorm ability. I also got a swirl one (white & orange)!

Was playing some more (and about to scour the web because that locked room is still on my nerves), and an Orange DM of mine with an antenna power of Falling Rock just leveled up to Lv.12, and his antenna power "grew" to Landslide! Yet to try it out (because it doesn't work on Fang Bats), but I'll be back super quickly (hopefully) to report.

Edit: Nothing about that room came up at the other places I checked. Anyway, Landslide does appear to do more damage than a basic attack, but I would've preferred being able to keep Falling Rock too, unless it wasn't an area-of-effect attack like I thought. Oh well, back to grinding...

Oh nice, Lennon's antenna evolved! (at level 9) Now he can use Sandstorm too.

I wasn't aware that they could evolve and learn multiple spells. I wonder when will the others evolve.

Edit: Sandstorm replaced Lennon's old magic move

This game is awesome! The graphics look amazing and it cool that the Eshop is getting an RPG. $10 seems good to me.

Response from the dev on "restocking" and Denpa Men spawning at other locations:


First the matter of the Denpa Men restocking. A place can be out of Denpa Men once you caught them all. This isn't common because there are a lot of Denpa Men floating around and not all will show themselves every time, but it is possible. So if this happens you'll have to find a new spot to find more Denpa Men.

Second the generating of Denpa Men at a WiFi spot is not totally random. At a certain spot the game generates various Denpa Men randomly, but all the Denpa Men will be same to all players who search at the same location.

So for example if you caught 'Fred' at the train station, another player two days later will be able to catch 'Fred' at the train station as well. But the train station will not generate specifically a lot of red Denpa Men for example.

@Philip How close are you to the review? Also does this game have any kind of main story?
