Aksys Games has announced they’re publishing Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate, a localization of Shiren the Wanderer 5 Plus, for the PS Vita in north America.

Shiren the Wanderer 5 Plus was developed by Spike Chunsoft and released in Japan on June 4th, 2015. The game features everything you would expect from the seminal rogue-like series along with ad-hoc co-op and competitive modes, wide-screen display, PlayStation Network trophies, and PlayStation TV support.

A trailer for the Japanese game can be seen below.

Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is scheduled for physical and detail release in North America on July 26th, 2016.

We’re covering this news due to Sega and Atlus’ previous involvement in the series and don’t really plan on following up with it in the future. We figured some fans of the prior games would want to know!

This is not the first time we’ve provided coverage of Aksys being involved with localizing a Sega fan series entry. The publisher is releasing Langrisser Re:Incarnation Tensei later this year in North America.
