An expanded and enhanced update of the Japan-only Shiren The Wanderer 5, Shiren The Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is coming to North America on July 26 through retail and digital stores, exclusively for PlayStation Vita.
From Aksys Games, The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate sees you playing as Shiren, a seasoned wanderer, whose trusted companion is a talking weasel named Koppa. As Aksys’ Danny Miscevich explained, you’ll find a rogue-like RPG with Shiren The Wanderer:
Part of the longstanding Mystery Dungeon series, TTOFATDOF (as it is so eloquently abbreviated) looks to continue the tradition of rogue-like RPGs by offering players a gaggle of dungeons and monsters to conquer.
The “rogue-like” genre is somewhat notorious for its challenging gameplay mechanics, but to prospective wanderers I say fear not! Grab a friend and traverse goodie-filled dungeons together with co-op mode! Once you’ve pillaged your fill as a dynamic duo, you can challenge each other in battle mode for glory and bragging rights. Fallen and can’t get up? Send out a rescue request and have your closest friend revive you on the spot! Seriously, questing for loot in dangerous domains has never been easier.
Aksys Games didn’t say if Shiren The Wanderer would be coming to Europe.
