Fushigi no Dungeon - Fuurai no Shiren 2 - Oni Shuurai! Shiren Jou!

Nintendo 64

Game Description:

Fushigi no Dungeon - Fuurai no Shiren 2 - Oni Shuurai! Shiren Jou! is an role playing game for the Nintendo 64.

Translation Description:

Shiren 2: Oni Invasion! Shiren Castle! Now in English!!!

Two and a half years in the making, SharkSnack and Ozidual are proud to present the English translation of Shiren 2: Oni Invasion! Shiren Castle! for the N64.

Follow 10-year old Shiren and his companion Koppa as they work to protect the Village of Napus from a terrible enemy. Climb mountains, float down rivers, journey through dungeons and maybe find paradise. But be careful! One wrong move and you could be sent back to the beginning with nothing more than your companion Koppa.

Shiren 2 is the 3rd game in the Mystery Dungeon series which began with Torneko’s Great Adventure and includes such popular series as Pokémon Mystery Dungeon and Chocobo Mystery Dungeon. Like a simpler version of Dark Souls, you will die and lose items from time to time but you will continue to progress. As frustrating as that can be it is a very rewarding game and saving Napus Village is only the beginning. Later on there is a whole monster collecting/leveling system with over 160 monsters. Not too surprising since Creatures, Inc. (makers of Mother and Pokemon games) had a hand in developing Shiren 2.

If you get stuck at any point in the game, check out SharkSnack’s newly created wiki for Shiren 2:

Note: Shiren 2: Oni Invasion! Shiren Castle! for the N64 is a completely different game from Shiren DS2 for the DS (which is a remake of Shiren GB2 for the GameBoy).

Shiren the Wanderer Discord:

The authors have had some feedback on Shiren 2’s functionality on various systems. Shiren 2 has a replay system to show you all of your steps on a current floor. It also does constant SRAM saves. All of which can cause issues with some emulators. Here’s what the authors have heard. It is known working on:

An excellent translation and a great intro to the series!

Reviewed By: rhinofinger on 15 Oct 2021

As a big fan of roguelikes, I’d always meant to try the Shiren the Wanderer series. Decided to start with this one, since the translation came out recently and I’ve always had a soft spot for N64 games.

Really enjoying it. The story is easy to follow, the menus and items are all translated clearly - everything is excellent. The game itself is great, though admittedly I haven’t gotten that far into it yet.

One thing - definitely recommend the fast text box speed. I chose normal, ended up having to restart my game to choose fast, because normal is quite slow. Guess that’s more of a preference than anything, but still.

Version 1.01 Recommended - Yes
