The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave Travels To Nintendo eShop

This week’s Nintendo eShop release is Genius Sonority RPG, The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave. You start out by recruiting “Denpa Men” from your surroundings by using the 3DS’ augmented reality capabilities, then form a party to explore dungeons and fight evil.


The Denpa Men is directed by former Dragon Quest programmer, Manabu Yamana, who is also the president of Genius Sonority. The game costs $9.99.


Also out this week is Quarth ($2.99), which is a Konami puzzle game for the Game Boy on 3DS Virtual Console, and Hitori by Nikoli ($4.99), yet another Sudoku puzzle game for the 3DS eShop.


Meanwhile, the Wii Virtual Console gets Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers for 900 Wii Points ($9), the seventh game in the Fatal Fury series with added features like the Break Shot—a guard cancel system—and new characters Li Xiang Fei and Rick Strowd.

    RB2 is a really great game.  Makes me a little grouchy that the Playstation Neo Geo Station isn’t also getting it so I could play on the go on Vita/PSP.  Highly recommended though, one of the best late-era Neo fighters, compares very favorably to stuff like Street Fighter Alpha 2&3.

    I liked the Denpa Men demo. Simple, but cute, enjoyable music, and cool corn enemy.

  •  I had a lot of fun with the Denpa Men demo. You can keep grinding as long as you want. Beating enemies and leveling up.
