Shiren the Wanderer

Fourth blog entry published.

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - JANUARY 21, 2010 - Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today demanded the release of the fourth Official Shiren Blog for the upcoming Wii™ RPG Shiren the Wanderer™ along with a companion video featuring some of the game's epic boss battles. As one would expect from an adventure spanning over 1,000 years, gamers will face a multitude of intense, strategic battles with bosses inspired by Japanese mythology. As we learned in the second blog entry ("Tactics"), they won't go down without a fight.


"Shiren and crew will be stomped, slapped, shot, stabbed, and otherwise maimed if you aren't prepared to face each boss with a strategy in mind. And sometimes, even if you ARE." Click here to read the full blog entry:

Exceptionally reviewed by famed Japanese gaming publication Famitsu (9/9/8/9), this latest entry in the legendary series stands as one of the most addictive, highly rewarding, and endlessly replayable games available on Wii, not to mention the most accessible Shiren game yet.

Shiren the Wanderer for Wii is currently scheduled for release on February 9, 2010. To learn more, check out the Official Blog, the Face the Bosses video, and visit the official website at
