    Genius Sonority, the developer behind numerous Pokemon titles including Pokemon Colosseum, Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, and Battle & Get! Pokemon Typing DS, has announced a brand new title for the eShop. The company will be bringing “Denpa Ningen RPG” to the Japanese store next Wednesday. It’ll cost 800 yen.


    Curious as to what Denpa Ningen RPG is all about? Read on below for the first details!
    - Denpa Ningen (“electric wave person”) are little critters which exist alongside the electric waves that float around you every day
    - Use the 3DS to capture the Denpa Ningen
    - Create a team to rescue an important person from the demon king
    - Different types of Denpa Ningen
    - Some have elemental properties which can be discerned based off their color
    - Some Denpa Ningen have antennas
    - Antennas indicate special abilities
    - Body size of the Denpa Ningen is related to HP, attack strength, and speed
    - Make a varied party before entering dungeons

    At first I was, like: "This ain't no RPG, looks like crap".
    Then, I got interested... But I wonder if it will ever make out of japan...

    Is that a Chocobo at 1:16?

    Kind of a misleading title.

    Honestly, this doesn't look all that good to me.

    Yup, when you hear Pokemon developer you hear Game Freak.

    Genius Sonority isn't just a 'Pokemon developer' :rolleyes:

    Correct, but main bulk of their releases have been Pokemon games. More famous for Pokemon games.

    Pokémon Colosseum (2003)
    Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness (2005)
    Pokémon Trozei! (2006)
    Pokémon Battle Revolution (2007)
    Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors (2007)
    100 Classic Book Collection (2008)
    Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell (2008)
    Otona no Renai Shōsetsu: Hārekuin Serekushon[4] (2010)

    well done for copying and pasting a wiki article?
    we know, they still aren't a pokemon developer - that's game freak

    that's like saying traveller's tales is a crash bandicoot developer because they've done some games.

    Okay where have 'I' said they are the core developers of Pokemon. I was just saying they helped developed Pokemon games for Nintendo home consoles and spin offs. They are Nintendo's second party studio who Nintendo turned to for these type of games.

    Well, if the game reaches Europe with a price of 8€ seeing as it'll cost 800¥ (roughly 8€ converted), I would def buy this, seems like a pretty fun game to kill some time. =3

    Looks like Monster Rancher's recruiting, with expendable Pikmin-like characters and Dragon Quest IX-like dungeons and battles.
    It looks TOO close to Dragon Quest IX though.

    Dafuq is wrong with quoting Wikipedia?
    If you look up the page about Game Freak, you'll see they have released some non-Pokémon games too.
