Spike Chunsoft have today released a new gameplay trailer for Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island, which is of course the latest entry in the Shiren the Wanderer franchise, that will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America next year.
Scheduled for a February 27th 2024 release Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island will put players in control of Shiren, the heroic wanderer who seeks adventure, in a 3D styled turn-based RPG adventure with procedurally generated maps, enemies and loot. As part of this gameplay experience Shiren will start at level one when he enters a dungeon and will grow within it, with all items lost if he collapses during exploration within the dungeon.
About Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island
After receiving a vision of a mysterious girl held captive by a terrible monster, Shiren and Koppa make their way to Serpentcoil Island—a distant isle rumored to be the lost stronghold of treasure-hoarding pirates.
To brave the many dangers that await them, Shiren and Koppa must traverse complex dungeons filled with hostile monsters, hidden traps, and useful items. All the gear and experience Shiren accumulates will be lost if he collapses during exploration, so beware of rushing in unprepared! Rescue the mysterious girl and uncover the mystery that clouds Serpentcoil Island.
The forthcoming release for Nintendo Switch marks the series’ latest mainline entry to come to the West since Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate was released on PlayStation®Vita in 2016 and then on Nintendo Switch in 2020. While preserving the traditional gameplay, this installment introduces new elements and 3D graphics to create a fresh and exciting adventure.
This latest trailer introduces new elements, including the game’s Monster Dojo—a special facility where you can simulate dungeon encounters and practice to your heart’s content. Additionally, it showcases Parallel Play, which allows you to enjoy a variety of ways to play. Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island is planned to release on 27th February 2024 for the Nintendo Switch both physically and digitally.
