Aksys Games to release Shiren the Wanderer 5 this Summer
Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate was announced by Akysys Games for release on July 26. Developed by Spike Chunsoft, the adventure continues in the fantasy world of feudal Japan for the PlayStation Vita.
The series tells the story of a ronin, Shiren, and his talking weasel companion Koopa as they search for legends and secrets. Shiren titles are roguelikes; games which features primarily dungeon exploration, randomly generated dungeons, permanent death, and RPG elements. Shiren the Wanderer was originally released in 1995.
The newest adventure follows the traveling duo as they traverse the Tower of Fortune. Within the tower, they hope to meet a god that can change their fate, or so the legend says.
Aksys Games recently shared some details on the multiplayer features of the latest Shiren. In co-op mode, players can work together to clear a dungeon floor by defeating a boss. If either player dies, the co-op session will end in defeat. In versus mode, players can face off in head to head battle.
Adventure and RPG fans can look forward to the fifth title in the series this Summer.
