A new entry in the popular Denpa Men series has been announced for Japan, title Denpa Ningen no RPG FREE! This new game, as indicated in the title will be the series first free-to-play entry. Details are somewhat sparse, but it has been confirmed that this game will be entirely free to download, but small payments will be required to use certain items in the game.
In the Denpa Men series, players are challenged with capturing Denpa Men using the 3DS’s cameras and motion tracking capabilities. They only appear when the player is near a Wi-Fi signal or using a QR code. All of the Denpa men are unique and change color, size, shape and abilities which affects gameplay. Combat is not random, and features an auto-battle option as the players traverse the world looking for treasure.
Depna Ningen no RPG FREE! will be released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Japan on July 23rd 2014. There has yet to be an announcement about a western release, but considering the three previous entries have all released it would be a surprise if it didn’t receive a translation.
