Chunsoft Say Shiren the Wanderer 2 On Virtual Console Is A Possibility



Shiren the Wanderer 2 was one of the few role-playing games that saw release on the Nintendo 64 about ten years ago. Seeing as how the N64 wasn’t exactly a hotbed of RPGs, it’s hard to speculate how many people got to try out Shiren 2 back in the day or even know it exists on the system ten years later.


Today, however, Chunsoft made mention of Shiren 2 on their Twitter feed. In response to a fan asking about the game, Chunsoft replied that Shiren 2 seeing a release on the Wii Virtual Console was a possibility, should series fans make their voices heard, although there are no definitive plans for this as of now.


Shiren 2 was never localized into English, so don’t get your hopes too high for an overseas Virtual Console release…unless Chunsoft are feeling very, very generous.
