Spike Chunsoft teases imminent dungeon RPG release in Japan, likely Shiren the Wanderer DS port for smartphones

A catchphrase and an image.

Spike Chunsoft sent out a press release today teasing the imminent release of a dungeon RPG in Japan, which will be distributed digitally. Title, release date, price, and platform were not announced, but the press release contained an image and catchphrase that points to it being a port of the 2006-released Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer for DS.

The catchphrase, a game that has “depth in that it cannot be played entirely even in 1,000 playthroughs,” is the same catchphrase used to promote the release of the DS title, which can still be found on its official website. The image, pictured below, is of Oryu, a character who appears in the game.

Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer

Again, platforms were not announced, but this news was posted by Famitsu’s smartphone games portal Famitsu App, which likely means the Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer will be for smartphones.
