The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave was possibly a bit of a surprise when it arrived on the 3DS eShop, going from a peculiarly advertised title to turn out, in our words, to be an experience that's "long and rewarding". It also made significant use of its portable platform, encouraging gamers to build their little army by taking their handheld on the road, with the game hooking up to Wi-Fi hotspots to boost your team. In short, we loved it and encouraged others to give it a try.

With such a positive reception, Genius Sonority wasted little time in bringing The Denpa Men 2 to Japan, while also confirming plans for localisation last October. After a bit of a lengthy silence on the subject, there's some encouragement today as it's emerged that The Denpa Men 2: Beyond The Waves has been rated by the Australian Ratings Board, bringing us a step closer to its arrival on the 3DS eShop. The page does say that it's multi-platform, but at this stage it's only been confirmed and released on 3DS in Japan.

So, did any of you enjoy the first title, and are you looking forward to diving into the sequel? Let us know in the comments below.
