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)
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.
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.
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!
