Spike Chunsoft has shared a new trailer and gameplay details for their upcoming dungeon crawler Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island.
Players are introduced to the Monster Dojo, which is a facility where you can simulate dungeon encounters. Another introduced feature is Parallel Play, which lets you share data with players worldwide and either play the same dungeon simultaneously or complete a single dungeon with multiple people.
This is a brand new entry in the roguelike dungeon-crawling series featuring protagonist Shiren and the talking ferret, Koppa. After seeing a vision of a girl held captive by a monster, the duo makes their way to Serpentcoil Island, which is rumored to have once been the stronghold of pirates who amassed a plethora of treasure.
In the stronghold, Shiren and Koppa are defeated by the monster who is holding the girl. But in typical roguelike fashion, they don’t give up and strive to become stronger so they can prevail. Shiren and Koppa will explore many dungeons, though it’s worth noting that should you fall, all of Shiren’s experience and equipment will become lost. Moreover, dungeons are procedurally generated, and players will meet several characters on the island, each with their own objectives.
