Shiren The Wanderer Gives Us A Reason To Fire Up The Vita
Still got a penchant for quirky Japanese games with an old-school flair? Then don't put away your PlayStation Vita just yet.
Aksys Games has announced Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate, which will hit Sony's portable in North America on July 26.
Players will assume the role of Shiren, who takes to the wilds with a trusted companion by the name of Koppa. Koppa is actually a talking weasel and he has to talk because per tradition, our protagonist Shiren is silent. This new iteration is actually "an enhanced and expanded update of Shiren the Wanderer 5," which only released in Japan (check out the trailer below). And as Aksys says, they want this new version to "continue the tradition of rogue-like RPGs by offering players a gaggle of dungeons and monsters to conquer."
This will offer a goodly challenge but you can always team up with a willing friend. If Aksys delivers on the promises, this could be one of the better Vita experiences scheduled for 2016.
