http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/rf_fish.jpg Here’s the tentative box art for Shiren the Wanderer 5: Fortune Tower and the Dice of Fate. In order to get excited for the game’s December 9th release, Famitsu and Chunsoft are commemorating the occasion with a special “DX Pack.”


Ordering the game from the Enterbrain store — Enterbrain being Famitsu’s parent company — will net you goodies like a porcelain teacup, a 2011 desktop calender and a towel. No images of these are available as of yet; the store uses a “Now Printing” sign as a placeholder.


Pre-order will net you two more goodies in the form of a limited-edition soundtrack and an 8-page booklet with a look back at the Shiren series. Here’s what the OST looks like:



Unlike the last couple games, Chunsoft are publishing Shiren 5 themselves in Japan. The game includes some sort of multiplayer mode as well as some of the improvements from Shiren 4, such as the day and night system.

  • Soundtracks are awesome.

    (Arent they the ones to make PKMN Mystery Dungeon? where is the next installment!?)

    • Far as I know, if it’s a Mystery Dungeon game it’s by Chunsoft. It’s the only franchise I know that inhabits the corners of other franchises like this: Pokemon, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, even Tower of Druaga…

    I already preordered this one. Hopefully Yesasia will have all the bonus stuff.

  • Who is the artist of Shiren 4 and 5?

    It’s not the same guy from Shiren 1 and 3, though that Limited Edition sound track cover art looks a little similar :)

    They need the original artist back (though the art in Shiren 5 is a little more acceptable than what I saw in 4 hehe)

      Tao’s design is really cute in a kinda peculiar way. I want a plushie.

    Hey, where is my comment gone? Anybody see it? I can’t see it anymore!

    Edit: oh wait, nevermind, here it is. Sometime Disqus acts up for some reason.

  • Do want.

    I want Shiren 5! Someone publish it here!
