The Denpa are coming! The Denpa are coming!

The sequel to The Denpa Men: They Came by Wave will come to North America's eShop, as confirmed by the official Denpa Men Twitter account. 

Known as Denpa Ningen no RPG 2, it was released in Japan on September 26. The sequel plays host to a number of additions, including a world map, StreetPass functionality, a fishing mini-game, and the ability to transfer your full party from the first game.

The sequel's world map replaces the location-based exploration of the first game. Instead of simply choosing a destination, players can now explore a large world by land or sea in search of dungeons.

The StreetPass feature allows players to extend the life of a lamp's glow as they explore a pitch black dungeon. The more StreetPasses they have, the longer they can stay.

No release date was provided for The Denpa Men 2. As for Europe, plans for the sequel will be discussed after the original's release there.

Talkback

I'm so glad I didn't listen to some of the mediocre reviews of this game. Finally downloaded it and love it. Sure, it's maybe too hard for not enough payoff. But the whimsy of "hunting" for floating dudes on WiFi signals and then throwing them into battle, which require some thought and feel satisfying, is weird, good fun. Only wish it offered the sequel's advancements, since that StreetPass stuff and the world map sound very neat.

Couldn't agree with you more. Listen to Episode 55 of Connectivity to hear Neal, Nate and I talk about our feelings on Denpa Men. I probably love it the most, but everyone enjoys it. Nate reviewed it for us, and I agree with a lot of what he has to say. It just doesn't affect my feelings on it. Glad to have another fan in the mix.

i liked the demo but I remember hearing about the sequel being better than the original so I'll wait for this.

I really enjoyed the demo, I might muy the first one just so I can transfer my party, to the second one if I get it.
