  • Summary: The Denpa Men are mysterious little creatures that float around radio waves. They all have their own territory. You can't see them with the naked eye, but you can use your 3DS to find them and catch them.

    In this RPG, you can form a team of the Denpa Men you caught and take them on an
    exciting adventure across the world, in order to save the hero's family. Many wonders and strong enemies await you on your journey!
    This game supports StreetPass as well. By passing other players, you can exchange your party information and increase the amount of time you have to explore special dungeons.

    You can even battle online now! All you have to do is register for battle, and you'll be able to fight other players at any time you want. Keep winning to earn phenomenal prizes!

    If you played the previous game, "THE 'DENPA' MEN: They Came By Wave," you'll be able to transfer your hero and you'll even be able to bring all of your friends from the previous game into this one!

    Overall, Denpa Men 2 is a vast improvement over the first with the addition of a rather large over-world to explore, a classic RPG soundtrack, a seemingly shallow story that evolves into a deeper (but still comical) tale as you progress, and great 3D visuals with the dungeons actually looking deep due to the semi top-down view.

    Nintendo's Wii U may be foundering, but the company has been knocking it out of the park on the 3DS lately. Minis on the Move joins other greats like Pushmo to make the 3DS an amazing platform for anybody who enjoys a good puzzle game. Check it out, and prepare to get addicted to sliding tiles and frantically saving minis from a plunge into the dark abyss.
  3. Genius Sonority has looked beyond the waves this time around and what it has found has helped strengthen the good signals we got last time.

    A weird dungeon crawling adventure with neat features (including AR compatibility) and a unique sense of humour.

    If you’re on a budget and looking for a portable dungeon crawler with loads of content and personality to spare, it’s hard to get more bang for your buck.

    Often grindy to the point of frustration, but luckily it balances that out by having heart, personality and colour to spare. [Aug 2013]

    Beyond just the fact that it’s a little boring to play, there are also the weird problems to deal with, and the game’s charm is nowhere near enough to make up for them. Even when you’re playing, it does so much of taking care of itself that I started to wonder why I’m even playing this when it can so easily play itself.

    This game is really fun and challenging at the same time, I enjoyed playing this game a lot and if you have a 3ds, I would consider getting this game.

    This game is really good. It takes what was awesome from the first one and evolves from there. Now you can equip your Denpas and actually watch them wear everything you equip on them. You can travel the land as if you were playing those amazing rpgs from 15 years ago.

    I haven't finished it, but I'm can't put it down either. If you are looking for a unique experience and good rpg game, this one is for you.
