THE "DENPA" MEN: They Came by Wave (Nintendo 3DS eShop) Review (8.0)  by  

Genius Sonority (Pokémon spinoff dev) has developed an AR RPG loosely translated to "Electric Wave Person RPG" for release on the JP eShop. Looks kinda fun: you use the AR to find little Pikmin-like creatures and then use them in turn-based battles. Check out the video. (Link)

That looks kind of cool. I'm not really sold on AR yet, though. Are you guys?

Face Raiders is probably the best example so far.

I'm not a huge fan of AR (though with the 3D off it works okay), but this premise seems...interesting at the very least. Curious to see if it ever hits the states.

I like quirky stuff like this, I would probably buy it just to say WTF every 5 minutes or so.

That looks bad-ass!

pretty cute, I'll buy it if it gets a NA release...
Posted: 02/01/12, 21:57:18
It's coming to NA

Looking forward to your impressions

Sweeeet. I hope Nintendo keeps supporting the download services.

Nice! Forgot all about this quirky little game. Floating Pikmin dudes hiding in Mt. Fuji? Count me in.

I only watched a bit of the video and didn't see a whole lot of AR integration. Is it used pretty sparingly?
Posted: 07/24/12, 20:01:30
The main characters themselves look...oddly/cheaply designed. The monsters tho look crazy cool.

The game has been released a while ago, has it not? Nintendan gave his impressions on it in a podcast I believe & it was pretty positive.

EDIT: Should read the whole thread before sayin' something stupid... my bad. Still I found those impressions by NWR's Danny Bivens.

So the demo is up for this game, it's releasing next week. It's pretty fun all around. Love the automatic option for battles.

I liked the demo, too. It completely took me by surprise how much I was immediately "into" the game. Felt like a fast-paced JRPG, which feels like an oxymoron just to say. Anyway, the demo has pushed me into a surprising 'may purchase' category.

Fun demo. Sure buy for me.

Curse you for showing this to me.

I was pushed into sure buy status when I read that you could send your team that you played in the demo over to the actual purchased games. I'm developing an affection for them that rivals my fondness for Pikmin.

What did everyone's main character name end up being? I wonder if it's chosen at random from your Mii list or if me getting Reggie was what the game programmed
Posted: 09/22/12, 18:09:59

@Deerock69 so did I. But I admit I would have replayed the starting sequence anyways. The transfert is a nice plus.

@VofEscaflowne My hero doesn't have the name of any Miis on my console. I would bet on randomness. I bet he has revive... does it? My hero is named Fredrick.

My team

My hero

My funniest team member so far

Posted: 09/23/12, 23:27:10
Did anyone pick this up today? I just bought it and going through the second dungeon area now. Collected a new team member for my team that's strong against the monsters here but still not able to have 8 party members. It'll definitely help since some monsters can take quite the beating!
