Shiren the Wanderer 5 finds its way to Switch this year

Get ready to climb that tower one more time

Did you know it has been almost 10 years since the last time we got a new Shiren game? That’s far too long for such a wonderful little franchise. While we wait to see what Spike Chunsoft does next with its silent wanderer, anybody who missed out on the Vita port of the fifth game in the series, Shiren The Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate, can rejoice in the news that it’s now making its way to Switch and PC.

The existence of a Switch port was announced earlier this year in a Japanese Nintendo Direct, but during today’s New Game+ Expo, Spike Chunsoft confirmed it’s bringing the title over to our shores. 

If you have no idea what this game is all about, check out my review of the Vita version from 2016. Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate will release for Switch and PC later this year. It’s nice to see more and more Japanese games finding their way to PC.
