Shiren DS 2 Starts With A Dungeon Escape

By Spencer . December 8, 2008 . 10:48pm

Mystery Dungeon Shiren the Wanderer DS 2: Demon Castle in the Desert begins with a weary Shiren wandering in the desert. After Shiren collapses he is dragged away by guards and chained to the wall in a dungeon. Koppa is bound too so it looks like there isn’t any hope of escaping until a mysterious […]

Sega Expands Wi-Fi Features For Mystery Dungeon: Shiren The Wanderer DS 2

By Spencer . November 5, 2008 . 10:12am

There are many more Nintendo Wi-Fi community features for Shiren’s second DS game and these are things you can’t experience from playing it at Tokyo Game Show (thanks for the tip crow!!). In addition to dungeon rescues introduced in the previous DS Shiren game, Mystery Dungeon Shiren the Wanderer DS 2: Demon Castle in the […]

Hands-On Shiren DS 2… Is It Easier Than The First DS Remake?

By Spencer . October 14, 2008 . 1:56pm

Tokyo Game Show isn’t the best place to sit down with Mystery Dungeon Shiren the Wanderer DS 2: Demon Castle in the Desert since it’s a mutable experience determined by random dungeons and even more random item drops. This could be the result of blind luck or a simplified demo, but the first stage in […]

Second Shiren DS game gets a date

By Spencer . August 25, 2008 . 1:41pm

Wanderers pack your riceballs and get ready to set out on November 13. That’s when Sega will release Mystery Dungeon Shiren the Wanderer: Demon Castle in the Desert in Japan. The “sequel” isn’t a direct follow up and this isn’t a remake of the Nintendo 64 game. Fushigi no Dungeon Fuurai no Shiren DS 2: […]

Shiren DS sequel heats up winter

By Spencer . June 17, 2008 . 10:43am

Sega hasn’t revealed much about Fushigi no Dungeon Fuurai no Shiren DS 2: Sabaku no Majou (Mystery Dungeon Shiren the Wanderer: Demon Castle in the Desert) on the main page. They don’t even have a release window on it, but Mystery Dungeon fans living in Japan won’t have to wait much longer to get their […]

Wander with your DS and take Shiren with you again

By Spencer . June 6, 2008 . 5:27am

Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer is getting a DS sequel, and it is another remake. Interestingly, Chunsoft chose to remake the second Game Boy Shiren game instead of the proper Nintendo 64 sequel to Shiren the Wanderer.   I suppose the source material doesn’t matter too much because Fushigi no Dungeon Fuurai no Shiren DS […]

Beethoven’s 5th Symphony used to promote Shiren

By Spencer . May 28, 2008 . 2:16am

Sega is adding a touch of class to their Mystery Dungeon Shiren the Wanderer 3: The Sleeping Princess in the Clockwork Palace commercial. The short advertisement has Shiren smacked, slashed and bonked on the head by rocks on beat to the opening notes of Symphony No. 5. Take a look in the video below.   […]

See Shiren’s (3rd) opening movie (update)

By Spencer . May 22, 2008 . 11:59am

Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer: The Sleeping Princess in the Clockwork Palace, as its called on Nintendo’s financial report, is about to come out in Japan. That means its time for Sega to start promoting it and they are starting with two videos on the official Shiren 3 page. One of them is the opening […]

Nintendo and subtitles: Confirms Dragon Quest V, teases with Shiren 3

Justin sent over a link to Nintendo’s end of fiscal year 2008 report (thanks!!) that contains a handy calendar of upcoming releases in English. Oh, Daigasso! Band Brothers DX will come out in Japan on June 26. Disaster: Day of Crisis is scheduled for a release on July 3. Great.   Justin went a step […]

Shiren wanders on the Wii in June

By Spencer . April 4, 2008 . 9:28am

After an initial delay, Fushigi no Dungeon Furai no Shiren 3: Karakuri Yashiki no Nemuri Hime (Mystery Dungeon Shiren the Wanderer 3: The Sleeping Princess in Karakuri Mansion) will come out in Japan on June 5th. You could casually purchase Shiren 3 after it comes out, but Sega has a tempting offer to attract reservations. […]

Stranger, please save Shiren!

By Spencer . March 19, 2008 . 2:08am

Like some of you I’ve been playing Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer, but instead of trying my best to avoid Mini Robbers and Mamels I purposely died at the beginning of the journey to test out the online rescue system.   Once Shiren falls the game saves and you’re given the option to use up […]

Chunsoft chats about Shiren the Wanderer

By Spencer . February 27, 2008 . 1:26pm

I was debating whether to post this Q&A session with Chunsoft because it wasn’t done by us. Sega did this internally, but it’s a fantastic look at the history of Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer from Chunsoft’s perspective. The DS team makes detailed comments about balance changes and other small details core Shiren fans will […]

Save and slay friends with Shiren the Wanderer 3

By Spencer . February 11, 2008 . 2:17pm

Chunsoft played Nintendo Wi-Fi connectivity to the DS version of Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer 2. For Shiren’s Wii debut Chunsoft is upping the online features. The rescue system where friendly players can revive fallen dungeon explorers returns in addition to an online versus mode. Since Mystery Dungeon games typically move in frames in reaction […]

Localization mysteries revealed in our Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer interview

By Spencer . February 8, 2008 . 3:44pm

We’ve been following Shren’s release in North America since we unearthed a retail listing for a DS game bearing his name way back in August 2007. On March 4th, Shiren’s localization journey ends and Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer will be in retail stores. I’m pretty sure the localization quest didn’t involve any rust causing […]

Watch: Shiren’s US debut (update: new release date)

By Spencer . January 17, 2008 . 10:04pm

Don’t be too hard on Sega about the “from the makers of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon” tagline. If that gets Shiren the Wanderer in the hands of more gamers in North America, I wholeheartedly support the idea. Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer is developed by Chunsoft, who makes a bunch of roguelikes in Japan. However, you […]
