Manabu Yamana

Genius Sonority, makers of The Denpa Men, has teased plans for the coming year.

When asked by Japanese publication 4Gamer about 2014, president Manabu Yamana said that the studio hopes to launch “some software” that is “likely to be quite challenging in its content.”

Yamana’s comments in full:

We are hoping to release some software in 2014. I can’t say a title yet, but it is likely to be quite challenging in its content. Thank you for your time.

Genius Sonority has found a home on the 3DS eShop thanks to three Denpa Men games. Yamana told us in a recent interview that a fourth entry would be possible, but if there were to be one, he “would like to change the game style thoroughly”.

Jack and I recently had the opportunity to interview Manabu Yamana, the president and representative director of Genius Sonority. The Denpa Men, EarthBound creator Shigesato Itoi, and former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi were among the topics discussed. Head past the break for our full interview with Yamana.

In August, Genius Sonority released the third Denpa Men title on the Japanese 3DS eShop. We haven’t heard much about a western launch, but president Manabu Yamana tells us that the company is interested in bringing the game out overseas.

Yamana said in a soon to be published interview:

Yes, if it is possible, I’d like to release The Denpa Men 3 in North America and Europe.

We’ve seen three Denpa Men titles in a relatively short timespan – a trio of games in less than two years. Genius Sonority may want to continue the series, but if the studio does so, expect a change in game style.

If there is to be another continuation of The Denpa Men series, I would like to change the game style thoroughly as the first three titles of The Denpa Men series were of the same format and style.
