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 2: Sabaku no Majou (Mystery Dungeon Shiren the Wanderer: Demon Castle in the Desert) will be new for North America if Sega chooses to localize this. I bet Sega will. Shiren is a franchise for Sega and Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer was the international introduction.
Sega hasn’t announced much in the way of new features for Shiren DS 2 aside from a minor novelty where you can share rescue points between Shiren 3 on the Wii and Shiren DS 2.
