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
remake of the original Super Famicom game and the first Shiren
game brought stateside, it's hard for us to think of anything else but the other five Shiren
titles that've yet to touch soil outside of Japan.
Chunsoft's recent announcement for Shiren the Wanderer DS 2
, another remake, this time porting Furai no Shiren GB2: Sabaku no Majou
(Shiren the Wanderer GB2: Demon Castle in the Desert
), originally a Game Boy Color title, has only stoked the flames of our yearning. Though it's reckless to assume Sega
will eventually localize the game as it did with the SFC remake, we've thrown caution to the wind, blinded by our optimistic heart's promises.
With that explained, hopefully you'll forgive us for featuring another piece on roguelike commercials less than two months after our installment on Pokemon Mystery Dungeon ads
. Bring your talking weasel past the post break for two Japanese commercials from Shiren the Wanderer GB2's
original 2005 release.
