For those of you who don’t know what Denpa Ningen no RPG is, it’s a downloadable RPG made by Genius Sonority, the development studio behind Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness on the Gamecube, with the former programmer for Dragon Quest, Manabu Yamana, taking the lead. It’s basically an RPG that has you using the AR functionality to recruit members for your party so you can go adventuring and all that good stuff.

It was recently announced that the game will be brought over to North America on the eShop. You’ll even be able to try out the demo before it launches. This marks the first time Nintendo has released a demo for a downloadable title before its launch and the third time that Nintendo has even released a demo for one of their downloadable titles period. The other two demos were for Fluidity and Pokémon Rumble (eughhhhhh) on the Wii Shop Channel.

I loved Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness (not so much with Pokémon Battle Revolution), so I’m really excited for this game. I’m also happy that Nintendo is getting smarter about demos.

  • Am I the only one who thinks these things look like Teletubbies?

    “This marks the first time Nintendo has released a demo for a downloadable title before its launch”
    I’m guessing you mean that for Nintendo’s own games, right? Because Order Up!! had a demo out weeks before it was available on the eshop (though I suppose it wasn’t a digital-only game).

    Also, Hey, I liked Pokemon Rumble!

    • Yes, I meant for Nintendo’s own games. I guess that statement wasn’t clear on that.

      Also, good for you. I thought it was a bland, repetitive game. I’m amazed that Nintendo/The Pokemon Company hasn’t fired Ambrella, already.
