This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
To do:
Some stuff to document.

Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island is a huge comeback for Shiren and his partner Koppa 8 years after their previous game Shiren the Wanderer 5: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate, this time being the 3rd Shiren game in 3D, and the first Shiren game to use the Unity engine.

Prerelease Info
Miscellaneous tidbits that are interesting enough to point out here.

Unused Graphics

A tile with some Japanese text on it


Unused Portraits

Shiren has a happy and a pain portrait, however you can only see his neutral portrait on the top menu screen when you are selecting your file.

Shiren does not talk in the cutscenes, so these portraits never get displayed anywhere.


Story Completion RNG Skip

If the player had a good RNG for the items that were needed to beat the final boss at the beginning of the game without fail, the player can beat the whole main story in only 5 minutes or less. (As shown on the completion screen in the video)

Additionally with the skip, some parts of the beginning of the game are skipped over, making some of the cutscenes inaccessible.

Normally, you have to fail this boss fight for the main story to progress.

It's possible to get the required items for the skip, however the player would need to be very lucky.

Additionally, doing this skip will show unique dialogue for Kantenbo that is never normally shown without the skip, he would get upset at Shiren for ransacking the island, instead of getting upset for challenging Jakaku.

Obscured Graphics

One of Suzuma's portraits has some unseen chunks that can be found outside of her portrait box



The rescue request system's translation is swapped for the English version, in which "off" is the "on" option vice versa.

Region Differences

The Japanese version has two language options, Japanese and Chinese.

The title screen logo is different.
