Spike Chunsoft, Inc. previously announced that the roguelike RPG Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island for Switch is coming to North America and Europe on February 27, 2024. Ahead of the game’s arrival, Spike Chunsoft has shared a special piece of time-lapse art created by the game’s character designer, Kaoru Hasegawa. Give it a watch above!
The Mystery Dungeon offers endless gameplay with procedurally generated dungeon maps, enemies, and loot to ensure that every game will be a new challenge for even the most seasoned adventurers. Shiren starts at level one each time he enters a dungeon, so he needs to grow by defeating enemies, gathering loot, and building strength. All the gear and levels Shiren accumulates will be lost if he collapses during exploration and must restart from scratch. The action progresses on a turn-based system, which allows players to plan carefully and thoughtfully. Players must use their accumulated knowledge, experience, and imagination to succeed.
This title brings new elements to the Mystery Dungeon, such as Shiren taking on new, powerful transformations and giant Behemoth monsters that hunt him through the dungeon.
