Initially I wasn't going for this one (unfortunately I lack patience for turn-based battle systems), but after playing through the demo, I might pick this up. It starts off slow (which is great for JRPG newbies like me), the map showing monster locations is a nice touch, as is the leveling up of the other DM back at the house, I also like that the demo data could be carried over to the full version.

@HeroOfCybertron The red DM I had with an Antenna Root later acquired the Forest Fire skill, so my guess is depending on the colour of your DM (and therefore element), it learns an element skill as it levels up.

Well I tried the demo. I decided to skip this title already besides there's a few e-shop titles I've been meaning to download & keep passing by like Kirby's Adventure 3d classic gonna save some cash in the e-shop though til art academy hits & see on how low of cash I got to work with on the chunk change left over in the e-shop after that. ;)

I am going to get one RPG paper mario 3DS.

@ RR529,

Thank you for the info on RPG's I do appreciate it. i'm gonna stick with mario though lol something I know. :)

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

This game looks very interesting. I wish I could give the demo a go now.

I wonder if we will get it in Europe. When was the release date announced for this in America? Just trying to figure out the time between announcement and release.

Do you think it will be a success outside Japan?

@Dizzard - We got the announcement and the demo yesterday. If you're wondering if you can predict Nintendo's downloadable schedule, good luck. They may announce a title's release date several months in advance (like with Pokémon Dream Radar) or we may just learn we're getting a game with the Nintendo Download press release. It all depends on Nintendo's mood, apparently...

Exactly.

This was kinda boing and pointless. The AR catching thing is unnecessary and not much fun, and the battles... were mindless. The game ha a definite charm, but without that there isn't much there.

Man, this was a blast! That was the second best demo I've ever played (the first being Patapon--that demo was almost too good, you can make substantial progress and cream through the full game by the time you buy it). Getting it for sure!

So after playing in better lighting the 3D effect is pretty nice in battles. Makes'em look more cinematic. I caught a lv.8 red Denpa man just now in my bathroom. That was pretty fun.

It was actually announced last week (NL was just uncharacteristically late in reporting it). NWR & eShop Gamers had the announcement during last week's eShop update.

On another note, I got all my Denpa Men at level 10, and have 53 potions! By the time the game launches I'm going to be good to go.

I heard that if you get game over while in a dungeon you lose all your Denpa Men and have to go catch them again. It seems a bit dodgy to me, I would probably end up putting my favourite ones in storage forever in case I lose them.

When you go back to catch them again are they back at level 1? (or whatever level you caught them) Do you lose progress on them?

No (not that I know of anyways). That's just what level they're currently at. Sorry for the confusion :P

I probably won't level up that much more before the game releases, though. I don't want to make it too easy, and the enemies in the demo are so weak it's starting to take forever to reach the next level.

Does this game actually tune into real world radio waves and create Denpa Men? At first I thought that it was just a silly excuse for why you are running around your house to catch these things but when I turned my wireless switch off, the game asked me to turn it back on as they couldn't sense radio waves with the switch off. Also, I only find the same Denpa Men over and over in my home but elsewhere find different ones. If it actually DOES read into radio waves, I think that's awesome! That meas where you are playing actually has an effect on what types of Denpa Men you find. Absolutely loving this game and can't wait until it comes out this Thursday!

Was the topic Creator going for the longest title ever or what! ;-)

I went into the demo as a skeptic but came out very optimistic! Cute fun graphics. Simple game play. Nice variety in enemies!

BTW they don't look like tellitubbies they look more like Yo Gabba Gaba.

Have the full version! Feel free to ask any questions. In the meantime definitely do level up your characters like crazy in the demo. You will need it!

@Philip_J_Reed - Enjoy yourself, good luck on the review.
I will start leveling mine up, since I guess 7 won't be good enough then.

Do the dungeons get bigger and more complicated?

Do the Denpa Men really vary according to the radio waves of your surroundings as bboy mentioned? Because that would definitely make the game more interesting.

All my Denpa Men are either level 11 or 12 right now, and I have an enormous stockpile of potions as well. I'll try to get them to level 14 before the full game launches, but the enemies in the dungeon are so pitiful it's starting to take forever to reach the next level.

Still, the difficulty you hinted at is intriguing & a bit surprising, given how the game's presented.

@Radixxs, I believe the game is detecting the amount of Wi-Fi signals in an area, and using that as "radiowaves" for the purpose of the game's theme. You can't collect Denpa Men with the Wi-Fi turned off (the game will actually pause, with your main Denpa Man asking you to turn it back on), and people have stated that in an area where there's a lot of Wi-Fi activity, there are more Denpa Men.

If the 3DS could actually pick up radio waves, there would likely be a radio function in the "3DS Sound" app, and I'm sure that it would have been mentioned before now (I highly doubt Nintendo would have neglected to mention this particular bit of information in every single presentation of the 3DS' capabilites).

I've got a question Philip. What is antenna root? I'm guessing a really nice surprise once the ability comes out!?

Not sure if it wifi or radio waves but I've got the best Denpa Men while driving in the car. The rare ones seem to pop up a lot more that way! Oh and yes the radio is on! ;-)

Still, that's pretty cool. I would definitely get this if it was $6.99, maybe at $9.99.
