In less than two weeks, players in Europe and North America will be able to check out the latest entry in the mainline Shiren the Wanderer series: Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island. The game is already a resounding success in Japan with over 200 000 units shipped.

There’s still a couple of weeks left before the game hits stores in Europe and North America, so here’s some more footage (in English this time!) to tide you over:

And that’s not all: Spike-Chunsoft has also shared some more details about the game. This time, we get a look at brand new feature that allows players to turn into a monster by eating a Peach Bun!

This latest game in the series introduces the Peach Bun, capable of transforming Shiren into a monster. As you progress through the game, you can obtain a Peach Club or Peach Staff. Defeating monsters with these items may grant you a Peach Bun bearing the name of the defeated monster. Eating Peach Buns will turn you into the corresponding monster and enable you to use its special ability. Transform into aquatic or flying monsters to traverse otherwise impassable areas. You can find the Peach Club and Peach Staff within dungeons under certain conditions, adding an intriguing aspect to the story revolving around these mysterious tools.

We also get details about some more monsters:

  • Hoppin’ Batter Family
  • Hen Family
  • Fire Ninja
  • Water Ninja
  • Tree Ninja
  • Metal Ninja
