Shiren The Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate

Aksys Games has shared new information on its upcoming Shiren The Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate for PS Vita.

The new Shiren the Wanderer game has a “robust” local ad-hoc-only multiplayer mode that lets players link up with a friend to dive head first into dungeons and danger in co-op or versus mode. In co-op mode, two players can join forces to quest together and defeat the boss waiting on the dungeon’s last floor. But if your co-op partner dies, so will you.

Shiren the Wanderer will also have secrets and goodies scattered throughout the game world. There’s also a tanuki named Pokopon you can talk to in Nekomaneki Village who will ask for passwords, which cannot be found in the game and that Aksys will be distributing over the internet. The first password is “Nonary Game.” Aksys still has 32 more passwords to share.

Shiren The Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is due out for PS Vita in North America on July 26.
