The Denpa Men are Coming to Your 3DS Next Week
Posted by Mike Mason
If, like us, you've been giddily waiting for Genius Sonority's The Denpa Men: They Came by Wave, you're in for a nice surprise next week. It'll be hitting the North American 3DS eShop on 27th September.
The dungeon-crawling RPG lets you use 3DS' augmented reality functionality to track down the radio wave-carried Denpa Men in your every day surroundings. Spot and snag one and he'll join you in combat as you go after the King of Evil to rescue that special someone through a variety of dungeons. Each Denpa Man is unique, so you may have to frequent several real-life locations to find the perfect party partners for each challenge.
The Denpa Men is directed by Genius Sonority CEO Manabu Yamana, known for his work on the Dragon Quest series as a director and lead programmer. It's his first RPG project since going independent. There's also music from Hitoshi Sakimoto of Ogre Battle and Final Fantasy XII fame.
It'll cost $9.99 when it comes out next week, but if you fancy a taster before then there's a demo on the North American eShop right now. Any items and Denpa Men raised can be transferred over to the full game. Try it out and let us know what you think!
Oh, and here's a crazy trailer.
