We're aware that we write about the Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer games much too much, especially considering that it's a niche series representing such a hardcore genre. But after playing Shiren the Wanderer DS, Chunsoft's remake of the original Super Famicom game and the first Shiren game b...

Shiren the Wanderer DS 2 no longer a mystery

The latest issue of Famitsu confirms the rumored DS sequel to Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer.

New screenshots, Koppa stand preorders for Shiren 3

Ever the pessimists, we're having a hard time convincing ourselves that Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer 3 will ever make it stateside.
