The Story: You control Shiren, a wandering ronin, who is accompanied by a talking ferret named Koppa. Their journey leads them to the Tower of Fortune, in search of a way to change their fate.
Gameplay: Like most Mystery Dungeon games or similar roguelikes, moving around dungeons is turn-based, so for every move you make, it equals one turn. Your foes also move in random patterns and requires strategy and the right placement to make it through alive. There is treasure and equipment that can be found in the dungeons. Permadeath is part of the roguelike design, so if you die, you lose all your items and have to start at level 1. Enemy placement and dungeons are randomized as a result. When starting out in a new dungeon, you have to "map it out" by exploring every single are in the dungeon to reveal it completely. The game also does feature and day-and-night cycle; when it nighttime, your vision decreases and you'll be unable to see enemies from afar.
I would recommend this game to anyone who is wanting an RPG with challenge and those who are fans of the roguelike genre.
Similar games on Vita: there a few like this that I know of, one of them is Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God, the upcoming Mystery Chronicle: One Way Heroics from the same developer Spike Chunsoft and the upcoming Touhou Genso Wanderer
Of the three games that have made it to the US, this one offers the most content by far, and balances some (not all) of the extreme challenge and bad luck that came with Shiren 1 and Shiren 3.
If you like roguelikes, this franchise is THE Japanese roguelike. All of the "Mysterious Dungeon" games for other franchises (Chocobo, Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest/Torneko, Pokemon, Etrian Odyssey Mysterious Dungeon, etc) owe their existence to Shiren. Thank you Spike Chunsoft and Aksys!
