The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll Hits North America and Europe on 8th May

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Demo next week, progress transferred to full game

Earlier this year we shared the news that Genius Sonority was bringing The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll to the West, the third entry in the quirky but rather excellent augmented reality RPG series.

It was previously announced that there'd be a demo in May, and the developer wasn't kidding — it arrives in Europe and North America in next week's update on 1st May; it'll have a 30 use limit and progress can be transferred to the full game. It'll be a quick turnaround, too, as the full title lands in the eShop on 8th May in both Europe and North America.

That certainly gives 3DS download fans something to look forward to. Check out last month's trailer below and let us know whether you'll be picking this up.

Idk I found the first game underwhelming and admittedly never bothered to try the second one. I doubt I'll get this but we'll see

Ohi ohi... I still didn't get the second game and here come the third O_O;

I highly doubt I'll ever catch up at this point, but I'm extremly glad they managed to keep releasing the serie, really loved the first entry ^^

@TopLaytonsHat I can't say anything for the 2nd one but I do own it. From what I've heard it's much more flushed out then the first like visiting towns and a arena battle mode. More the traditional style rpgs then the 1st was.

Like I said above I haven't had time to play the 2nd one but enjoyed the first. I'll buy this to show support but it will sit there probably for a long time unfortunately this month is killer for good to great games!

Judging from that video I sense a theme of sim games doing well on the 3DS - Animal Crossing, Disney Magical World, Tomodachi Life. This one also seems to have a capture and fight aspect seen in the recently announced Sklyanders Trap Team,and of course made famous by Pokemon. Looks like the game has come a long way from the first. And good to see another quirky game like this getting released in the west.

Oh, and good to see a demo getting released, and a week before the actual game just like Mario Golf did yesterday. Seems like 6 months and counting since the Wii U eShop has seen a demo at all.

I spent hours and hours playing the first Denpamen but towards the end I got a little tired of the repetitiveness. This just seems like a HUGE step up from both 1 and 2 and I can see myself playing this just as much, if not more than, a regular retail game from Ninty!

I mean seriously, you can decorate the Denpamen's houses?! It's like they incorporated my favorite part of Animal Crossing into this game :D

I love this series. I am a little bummed out that I have not been able to finish the second one. I was hoping I would have it complete by the time number three was released. Anyone know how the hell to find the water temple in number two? haha. I am at a complete loss.

This does look better than the second one. I finished the first (that one was good) but haven't been able to finish the second yet...its just so bland where I'm at.

I loved the first but I never completed it. I'll have to beat it AND the second before I can get this one! So glad they're releasing more games in this series though because it's really unique.

First one was like what 9.99
Second one was 11.99 or 12.99
So watch this one be 14.99 :(

Come on 12 bucks or less and hopefully GRINISA will be 7.... can get both for 20 and they both hit the same FREAKING DAY

Well its confirmed Grinisa or whatever its called is 9.99 so hopefully this will be 9.99 as well so i can get both for 20 :)

Especially Denpa men two. That game had its faults but it was much better than the first at least~

I was hoping for an online co-op mode for the Denpamen 3. I will probably still get it since the first 2 games were very high quality at a great price. Basically the Denpamen 2 was a huge open world RPG. this one looks to have thrown in a bit of Animal Crossing.

LOVED the 2nd one! Been waiting for this for a long time, and only $9.99 that's a few bucks cheaper then I payed for Denpa men 2. Getting it day one for me.

@Spoony_Tech You should try part 2 its awesome. much more open world than part 1 was. in fact its a wide open JRPG type game. so good at that price. The Denpamen is definitely one of the best bargains in the Eshop. its too bad people shy away from it because the way it looks cause its awesome.. I know you won't shy away but Give it a shot sometime especially part 2.

@Gobelee Try talking to one of the guys in the colosseum. Think there was some quest before that.
Bought this on sale and thought it was a short RPG. 100 + hrs later I was proven wrong. Had loads of fun w/ #2. The online team battles are a blast. Not sure how to get the really powerful ones though.

I'm thinking about getting this. I enjoyed the first but it was too much of a grindfest for every new dungeon, so I skipped the 2nd thinking it'd be the same. I guess I'll see how the demo goes first.
