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 […]

Hands on Mysterious Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer 3

By Spencer . September 26, 2007 . 10:13pm

If you never played one of Chunsoft’s rouge-likes before Mysterious Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer 3 is not the game to start with. After thirty seconds on an introduction you’re thrown into the dungeon with two characters in your party. After you make a move, Asuka takes her turn and then Sensei, Shiren’s master, makes an […]

Seeing Fushigi no Dungeon: Fuurai no Shiren’s DS remake should have been the first clue to another Shiren installment. Chunsoft has plans to make a sequel for the Wii, Fushigi no Dungeon: Fuurai no Shiren 3, and it looks great. The formula is rogue-like with a new system where you drop an item in a […]
