Initially revealed during the Japanese Nintendo Direct on August 29th, tiny "Denpa" Men could be seen hovering around Iwata at 38:41 in the video. Titled Denpa Ningen RPG2 (電波人間のRPG2) in Japan, it was announced as a North American 3DS eShop release on September 14th under the title The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave. The Denpa Men is a single-player RPG (role-playing game) published by Genius Sonority Inc., and is the sequel to the Japanese exclusive Denpa Ningen RPG (電波人間のRPG). The title will become available in the North American 3DS eShop on September 27th for $6.99 $9.99, and in the Japanese 3DS eShop on September 26th for ¥1,000 Japanese Yen.

In The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave, mysterious little creatures, known as "Denpa" Men, float around radio waves. Unable to be seen normally, these tiny creatures are able to be seen, and captured, by making use of the 3DS' built-in camera. Capture the Denpa Men to form a completely unique party and explore dungeons inhabited with monsters. No two Denpa are the same; their all completely unique and have their own unique bodies, faces, personalities, special skills, and strengths. That's what I call a winning combination! Some Denpa Men can only be captured in specific locations. There's someone special waiting to be rescued at the end of the game, so make the best party that you can make.

I am excited for this. I love RPG games and this one looks very fun. The concept is neat (capturing by way of camera) and the gameplay is very similar to Dragon Quest just on a lower scale. I love customization in a game and this surely offers that. I know I will be getting this game day 1.

Kinda cool looking, the little Denpa men remind me of the adventurers that you can hire on Find Mii.

I never thought of that but yeah! I think it will be just cute fun.
Pikmin inspired all the way! Everything from the way they look, to the way they're used in combat by ganging up on their enemies. Yes, Pikmin inspiration played a part in this somewhere.

UPDATE: The North American eShop price has just changed from $6.99 to $9.99.

My 3DS friends keep sending Swapnotes about this game, but it's not out here. Bummer. This is the first I've seen of it.
Still a few more days to go.

Thanks for the reminder. I can't wait!

Is anyone here going to use their current save data from the demo, or start from scratch? I'll probably start from scratch.
I wasn't even aware there was a demo D:

I do not think it is available in Australia unfortunately. :(

The full game releases this Thursday in NA. This is an instant buy.
We usually get whatever Europe gets, in terms of digital games. Usually, but not always. I'm gonna check, just in case.

I don't know about you guys but I love these three guys already! First off that three grown men are wearing brightly colored spandex is hilarious. Secondly, they all have their own personality and that really ties into the reason to capture so many "unique" Denpamen in the first place. Lastly, I will say that the black man in green with curly red hair makes me laugh. Just a very different combination. Though my favorite of the three is the man in blue with the glasses.

What do you think about these umm... I guess you would say they are spokesmen/ mascots?
I think I will be using my saved data.

The red "Mascot" is freaking me out.
