Surprise Nintendo Direct gives us new Chibi Robo and Denpa Men games for eShop
Out of nowhere, Nintendo dropped another one of its Chotto/Mini Direct videos in Japan, this time focused on the 3DS and Wii U eShop. The big item is Chibi-Robo Photography, an AR game that has players taking pictures of real-world objects that match certain outlines. Skip to 08:30 in the video to see it, as it’s a lot more interesting than that simple description. It comes out in Japan… today!
Other notable Chotto Nintendo Direct bits include the Denpa Ningen RPG 3 announcement (with houses for your Denpa Men!), a limited edition Chibi-Robo Wii U for some reason, and new video-streaming and food delivery services in Japan for the Wii U eShop.
All this time, I never noticed…
One of many odd characters you can collect in The Denpa Men — which you really should download from the 3DS eShop if you’re looking for a lighthearted RPG.
Someone even picked it as their 3DS game of the year!
Meet Alicius, a white Denpa Men strong against Dark Magic and able to cast Tiny Heal. You can import this little guy into your game using the above QR code.
While I find QR codes kinda useless in real life, in the specific context of 3DS games I always find them delightfully charming. Especially when they carry Denpa Men!
How to catch Denpa Men. Also, how to see three dudes in skin-tight bodysuits in your browser window.
Whether you enjoy the real-life Denpa Men or not – and I’ll charitably assume that there’s someone out here who doesn’t think these guys are the absolute best, even though that seems impossible – I urge you to check out the Denpa Men demo. I wasn’t expecting too much, but I found it to be delightful enough to… wish I had time to get back to it.
There’s “Puff Puff” in The Denpa Men! Yes, this eShop game doesn’t just crib most of its design from Dragon Quest, it also throws in a running joke from the series.
This conversation happens when you talk to one of the miners in the Ocean Cave, who offers to heal you. If you accept, the screen goes black, and this text appears:
“Oh my! This is amazing!!!”
“Puff puff puff”
“I could get used to this!!”
Don’t forget there’s a free Denpa Men demo on eShop!
