The Japanese title of the game is Furai no Shiren Toguro-jima Tanken Roku, which translates to Shiren the Wanderer: Toguro Island Exploration Record. The new title brings back classic Mystery Dungeon action, in which players traverse countless floors filled with dangerous enemies and treasure. If players are defeated during their adventures, they lose their money and objects and have to start back at level 1.
