The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves Diving Onto the 3DS eShop On 30th May

Posted by Orla Madden

Reacquaint yourself with those crazy men again

Last month we reported that The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves was given a May release for the 3DS eShop in both North America and Europe.

It's been confirmed by the developer, Genius Sonority, that the sequel to The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave will make a splash across both regions later this month on 30th May. The game will be priced at £8.99 / €9.99 / $11.99 respectively.

If you have the previous game, you'll be pleased to know that you can transfer over your characters to the new entry; give them a chance to explore more than just dungeons, let them take a wild adventure across the vast ocean and stroll through towns.

Dive into the promotional trailer below, and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming anticipated RPG.

£8.99?!? After the repetitive boredom of the first there's no way I'm paying that much! What the hell are they thinking anyway - AFAIK the first's sales weren't all that impressive at £7.19.

That price is a bit higher than I expected it would be. I definitely will need to see some reviews before I make a decision on whether to purchase it or not.

Eek, bad timing for a new release on the eshop as that is the very day that the two Zelda oracle games are released in Europe.
I know what I'll be buying.

My kid played the demo for the first game alot, but not enough to pony up the $10. Maybe this new release will get a 1/2 off sale on the first to generate interest. I mean, no reason to keep the 1st price high, who's going to buy it at that price when they can buy the much improved one? Plus Nintendo said yesterday they were looking into sales.

I'm also gettin the Oracle Series on May 30th.
There no way I'm gonna get the game, especially at a $12.oo price tag.
That, and Animal Crossing a few days later, followed by a WiiU and Wind Waker a month and a half later? Nope, no more Indy Games for me for a while.

When we european customers were complaining about high prices (€1 = $1.33), american customers called us poor whiners...
Now that they pay a game as we do, they start complaining about prices...

I think the price is reasonable for all the hardcore RPG action (which I love), but with the release date over on the 30th, It may be hard to put quality time into it.

@andreoni79 I'm not complaining, and I'm American, who would've guessed?

If a game is too pricey for you, don't buy it. If everyone is buying something else they'll fix their practices.

I think the price is reasonable, but I'll save that for another time.

This is a day one purchase for me. I loved the first, and this looks absolutely epic.

Would pay 10 times more if needed. First part gave so much fun to my kid. Brilliant game, he spent more time on that than all "retail" huge 3DS blockbusters he owns.

I loved the first (my second favorite eShop title), but I think I'm going to hold out on this one (and the Oracle Zeldas) for awhile.

All my SD space is filling up, so I may take a break from downloads, to try and save enough for a couple of retail releases.

Although I didn't enjoy the first (I stopped playing halfway through because nothing caught me), this looks amazing. So many new things to do. I'll wait for reviews, but I'm sure I'll give this franchise another choice in this sequel.

Why aren't there many people excited about this title?? The first was pretty great IMO, the sequel is set to have dramatic improvements on the first, with a huge overworld, animal crossing-like activities like fishing and crop growing and streetpass functionality, to name a few.
This is a definite day one purchase for me and I am set to get the demo as soon as it arrives, you guys that are complaining about the price obviously haven't done any research into this title. If you didn't know, some of the devs that worked on the old SNES Dragon Quest titles like DQVI are on the Genius Sonority team and they even likened this sequel to Dragon Quest II, where this sequel to They Came by Wave has a lot more going for it then the last game did. trust me come May 30th you should consider getting it, because apparently they've upped the difficulty from 'fairly easy- normal' difficulty, to normal-hard strategic' difficulty.

@HeatBombastic
"If it's pricey, don't buy it" is the answer we europeans get when we complain about the fact that we pay a 3ds game € 45 (= $ 59) and a Wii U game € 59 (= $ 77)... Would american customers be happy to pay such prices?

RetroGBHippie92 said:

@andreoni79 Wow, we pay $94 NZD and that roughly translates to €60, this is for new release retail 3DS games. I don't think anyone here besides me should complain TBH...

@RetroGBHippie92
Do you have this crazy prices for everything in New Zealand? At least I hope you can use american games, because if you have to use the Pal version... that's bad bad luck!

RetroGBHippie92 said:

@andreoni79 No we can't use American NTSC games on our 3DS', we can however play european PAL games, cause we are the same region as Europe.
This is why I'm importing or buying online, retailers here put the games up to ridiculous prices.
I'm happy to pay whatever for downloadable games on the eshop, unless they're cheaper on the European eshop that is. I prefer not to change the region on my 3DS, but if there's a game I seriously want, I'll do it.
