Shiren the Wanderer (不思議のダンジョン 風来のシレン3 からくり屋敷の眠り姫 Fushigi no Danziyŏn - Furai no Shiren 3: Karakuri Yashiki no Nemuri Hime?, Mystery Dungeon - Shiren the Wanderer 3: The Sleeping Princess in the Clockwork Palace[1]) is a roguelike developed by Chunsoft and published by Sega for Wii. It was released on June 5, 2008 in Japan and on February 9, 2010 in North America.[2]

A PSP version was released with a "readjusted (easier) difficulty, a new infrastructure mode, and shorter loading times via the ability to install the game to a PSP".[3]

Reception[edit]

The game received a high score of 35 out of 40 from Famitsu magazine.[1] It sold 59,000 units in its debut week in Japan.[4]

The game is considered markedly easier than other games in the series, mostly because of keeping your gained levels upon death, and the option of restarting from a save file. This, alongside the flawed party system, has resulted in relatively poor reviews in Japan. Copies of the game can be found in Japan for as little as 680 Yen (roughly $7 USD) [5]
