Genius Sonority's Denpa Ningen no RPG Heading to the West

You know, the guys behind Pokémon Colosseum
We at Nintendo Life absolutely loved Pokémon Colosseum. Who didn't? Which is precisely why we are so excited to hear that Colosseum developer Genius Sonority is bringing its latest 3DS eShop game over to the West.
Back in January, we introduced you to the utterly absurd-looking Denpa Ningen no RPG (literally: Electric Wave People). It's directed by former Dragon Quest programmer Manabu Yamana and was released in the Japanese eShop in February.
In Denpa Ningen no RPG the aim is to use your 3DS console's AR functionality to scan the area around you and capture the Denpa Ningen "wave people" that are floating about. You can then build a team with these Denpa Ningen to battle and hopefully defeat the Demon King, as well as many other monsters on the way.
There are plenty of different types of Denpa Ningen to collect, some with elemental types (indicated by their colour) and some with other special abilities. The size and build of each Denpa Ningen also relates to how much health it has, its attack strength and also speed. This means you have to assemble a varied party in order for your team to have the right balance to defeat the upcoming monsters on your adventure.
Any prospective buyers will be able to try out a demo of Denpa Ningen no RPG on the Nintendo 3DS eShop prior to launch. We'll let you know as soon as we hear any more on a release date.
