In order to explore the game world you’ll have to build a team of powerful Denpa Men while also solving a number of puzzles to advance through the game world. Denpa Men are all different in their appearance and skills so choosing your team will ultimately impact how you approach the game. Denpa Men join your team by using the camera in the Nintendo 3DS to find them in the real world (by scanning QR codes or when near Wi-Fi connections).

Combat is turn based and will have you commanding your Denpa Men to attack the various enemies with a mixture of single target and multi target skills with various damage numbers and effects. If you want to speed up the battles there is also an auto-battle option included.

The game incorporates plenty of other RPG elements into its gameplay including items, equipment, non player characters and much more. It is easy to get lost in exploring the game world which spans many towns and even over the seas. In between exploration you’ll have plenty of other side activities to keep you busy.

These activities include growing plants, fishing and finding equipment to boost your stats (while also making your Denpa Men the most fashionable around). You can then take pictures of your team from many angles and save them to your PC or 3DS to share with friends.

Sharing pictures isn’t the only thing you can do with others though, once one you find the street lamp in the game you can also use the StreetPass feature to swap information with others and unlock hidden dungeons. You can even battle others online if they have registered their party which unlock victory medals for wonderful prizes.
