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 won’t find Pikachu hanging out here. Shiren’s world has a distinctively Japanese feel to it and according to the trailer, fluffy bunnies to fight. Sega has Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer scheduled to arrive on March 4 and if it does well Shiren 3 will have a chance to get localized.
Update: In response to the comments I sent an e-mail over to Sega asking if Shiren got bumped up from March 11. And it did! The new release date is March 4th.
