Genius Sonority’s Denpa Men series appears to be doing pretty well since the third game in the eShop RPG franchise will be making its way to the U.S. this summer.
To celebrate, The Denpa Men 1 and 2 are being discounted in the eShop until March 13. It’s a great time to pick them up since you will be able to transfer your characters from the previous games to The Denpa Men 3 when it comes out.

Inti Creates, the studio behind the Mega Man Zero and ZX series, announced Azure Striker Gunvolt, a 2D action sidescroller for the 3DS that is clearly inspired by the studio’s previous works.
Players control Gunvolt, a 14-year-old boy with the ability to manipulate lightning. He’s able to use his powers to attack enemies and protect himself from projectiles. He also has a special gun that fires lightning rods, which he can be used to chain lightning bolts from enemy to enemy.
Comcept CEO and Mega Man co-designer Keiji Inafune is involved with the project as an executive producer.
Azure Striker Gunvolt is scheduled to hit the 3DS eShop this summer.
