Shiren has a new moves in Shiren the Wanderer 4 and one of them lets him shoot a powerful pink energy blast. Adding a skill system is one of the changes Chunsoft made to the series.


The others? Well, there’s this character called Banana Prince that follows Shiren around. Perhaps, he (it?) is the reason why Shiren doesn’t eat riceballs anymore. Bananas satiate him in Shiren the Wanderer 4.

Dungeons also have doors which can protect Shiren. In the screenshots below, Shiren stepped over a door that the monsters can’t pass through. Shiren can still attack through the gate so he has the upper hand. It’s the Diablo stand in the door trick all over again.

Shiren the Wanderer 4 is scheduled to come out in Japan this winter. No news about a US release, but Atlus is working on Shiren the Wanderer 3 and have a good relationship with Spike, the game’s publisher in Japan.

    Oh yeah, the good old “beyond a gate” trick from Diablo. Could have never beaten the Butcher without it.

    Pink beam seems kinda exaggerated but cool nevertheless.

    Wow, that is a beam of Super Robot Taisen proportions.

    I wonder if the skill system is integrated into the whole game or one of the themed dungeons. Chunsoft has done it the first way in Torneko: The Last Hope and the second in Shiren Gaiden.

    Hmm, now I might be more excited about this than Shiren 3. Portable platforms really are the best for roguelikes.

      Well, Shiren 3 was also announced to be ported to PSP in the near future, so I can be excited about both.
