Grab your walkin’ stick and your favorite talking animal friend because Shiren The Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is headed to PS Vita on July 26th.
Are you a daydreamer? Do you often find your mind wandering through fantastical realms, searching for arcane artifacts and shiny loot all while slaying crafty monsters and creatures? I know I do — at least three times a day. That’s why I’m very excited to reveal that Shiren The Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate will land exclusively on PS Vita this year.
For those unfamiliar with the series, players assume the role of Shiren, a seasoned wanderer, whose most trusted companion happens to be a talking weasel named Koppa. If fact, here to give us the lowdown on what to expect in this latest installment are none other than Shiren and his trusty sidekick Koppa! However, seeing as how Shiren wanders the lands as a silent protagonist, Koppa has helped fill us in on the nitty gritty of their latest adventure.
As Koppa tells it, The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is an enhanced and expanded update of Shiren The Wanderer 5, which was previously available only in Japan. 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.
Until next time, noble wanderers!
