Jon of RGN writes, "Augmented reality felt cool at first, but I was supremely let down by how little it meant to me to capture each Denpa Man. The game’s tutorials are thick and heavy. The learning curve for a game that doesn’t include any real meaty gameplay winds up leaving The Denpa Men 3: The Rise of Digitoll for Nintendo 3DS a negligible release. The game has a very niche appeal and most of you reading this right now would probably not like it. It’s simply missing too much substance from the RPG genre it pulls from. Despite its longevity and respect from many gamers in this industry, RealGamerNewz cannot award this game a high rating."
