Atlus U.S.A.,today launched the official website and video trailer for Shiren the Wanderer, the upcoming Wii entry in the long heralded Shiren series. The video, which features a healthy mix of gorgeous CG cutscenes and in-game action, introduces fans to the game’s mythology-laden, time-hopping tale, as narrated by your talking ferret companion Koppa.
“One of the most important elements of what makes Shiren the Wanderer a worthwhile RPG adventure on Wii is its intricate story,” commented Crystal Murray, PR Specialist at Atlus. “The stoic ronin Shiren and his ever-prattling sidekick Koppa set out on an epic millennium-spanning journey, steeped in Japanese mythology. Join them as they as they race to unlock the secrets of a mystical land. The newly launched official website and trailer will help make waiting for the game’s February release slightly more bearable, of course excluding fans who have access to a time machine and/or the ability to safely freeze themselves until said time, in which case they’re all set.”
When you’re done viewing and reviewing the trailer, head on over to the recently opened official game website (http://www.atlus.com/shiren), which will further verse you on everything Shiren, showering you with additional art, info, and more.
