The Denpa Men 2: Beyond The Waves Penciled In For A May Release In North America

Posted by Andy Green

Should be in the 3DS eShop in a couple of weeks

The Denpa Men: They Came By The Wave is one of the more bizarre games to make it to the 3DS eShop, but we're very glad it did as it managed to captivate many a Western gamer.

Naturally, Japanese 3DS owners enjoyed it quite a lot too so Genius Sonority quickly got to work on making a sequel. Due to the success in the West, it also confirmed The Denpa Men 2: Beyond The Waves would be localised.

It's not been known when the game will be made available, however IGN has reported the upcoming dungeon crawler has a tentative released date of 2nd May for the North American eShop.

Genius Sonority has its roots firmly planted in the Dragon Quest series of games, as it came to be after the demise of Heartbeat, which worked on Dragon Quest VI and VII. The developer's executive director, Chihiro Kobayashi told IGN the studio wants The Denpa Men 2: Beyond The Waves to be just as hard as the games in the Dragon Quest series, so if you're expecting an easy time you should probably think again.

There's no news on a European release date just yet, but we're hoping it won't be too far away either.

Check out our The Denpa Men: They Came By The Wave review to see why we're so excited about the new sequel.

Oh, so don't expect anything too hard then. Though I'm beating the first one before I get this one and by that I mean the after story.

Great......another game I want and don't have the time for. Oh well that's what backlog is for. Bring it on!

is it just me, or does the 3ds eshop not hesitate with bringing sequels. crashmo, drw the last ranger, and this game are coming out only 1 year after their orininals



Dpishere said:

Nice! I never got around to purchasing the first one so I will likely wait till this one comes out seeing as it looks to be a big improvement over the original.

Too bad it was not this THURSDAY the 25th..

come May 2 i will be too deep into Soul Sacrifice for the vita to deem a download...though if its 10 bucks or cheaper i probally end up downloading anyways LOL since i should be done with soul hackers

Saw this announcment on IGN yesterday and gave me the inspiration to pick it back up . It's really an excellent game, anyone whos hesitant on getting it should try it out ^^.



Windy said:

BOOYA! I've been waiting for this one. Holy cow the amount of great games is just killing me LOL. It's just hard to keep up.



Windy said:

@Retro_on_theGo You should get the first one if it has a price drop. it really is good and will be a nice introduction. The game got great ratings but there were some gamers turned off by the goofy Characters. it really is a great RPG/Pet type game



Dpullam said:

@Dpishere I'd have to agree with you. I would rather wait and see how this sequel turns out rather than buy the first one since it apparently has a huge overworld to explore.

Funfact. The original is the 4th best selling game on eshop in japan(source IGN)

Hey does anyone have a JP 3DS? I would love to know the all time best sellers sales chart for the Japanese eshop.



LordessMeep said:

But.. but... MY WALLET IS NOT READY!! D:
Normally I'd be happy that we're getting it so soon after announcement but with the recent influx of games I want, looks like I'll be picking it up much, much later down the line. Oh well, gotta finish the first one then.



Aerona said:

Cool, I really liked the original. Probably my favorite eShop game so far.



Windy said:

@LordessMeep Man I hear you. So many good games so fast is killing the wallet. Both retail and Eshop=Good stuff. Never seen anything like this in 30+ years of gaming. Good game after good game **head spins**

"the studio wants The Denpa Men 2: Beyond The Waves to be just as hard as the games in the Dragon Quest series"

This makes me a little worried...



slidecage said:

. wonder if that is still the date

love to see them BUMP It up to TOMORROW but doubtful



Kitsune_Rei said:

Yay yay yay!
Now I gotta finish up the little bit of post-endgame stuff I had left. I hope we'll have space to catch more Denpa Men!

I wonder (hope) if you can transfer your captures from the first game. It's been a long arduous and slightly embarrassing process to find the ones I already have, it would be a shame if I could not utilize that collection.
