Could Zany Free-to-Play RPG The New Denpa Men Come to PS5? 1

During yesterday’s excellent Nintendo Direct, free-to-play RPG The New Denpa Men was explicitly announced for Nintendo Switch as a “timed exclusive”. The developer, Genius Sonority, has a long and strong relationship with the Super Mario maker, spanning the original Denpa Men trilogy on Nintendo 3DS. But could the new title also expand to consoles like PS5?

Well, the likeliest answer is that it’ll probably target PC and mobile next, and it wouldn’t be the first time Denpa Men has been available on smartphones. However, given the free-to-play business model and enormous popularity of live service RPGs like Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail on Sony’s system, we wouldn’t rule out a port entirely.

Regardless, the game itself looks as charming as ever. “The New Denpa Men is a free-to-play RPG where you can collect Denpa Men for your party and adventure with them as your companions,” the blurb reads. “In addition to the main adventure, there is plenty of fun to be had, like decorating your island, fishing, participating in limited-time events and playing against other players’ Denpa Men.”

You can check out the trailer above for a taste of what to expect, and of course we’ll contact Genius Sonority to try and find out if a PS5 port is in the pipeline. Is this something you’d be interested in playing on Sony’s platform? Find the Denpa Men hiding in the comments section below.
