For the first in the series, there is a SNES version (which was never released outside of Japan) and a DS version. [[http://agtp.romhack.net/project.php?id=shiren Aeon Genesis has been kind enough to provide a translation patch for the SNES version.]] The lone Wii installment was most recent ''Shiren'' to be released outside Japan, [[NoExportForYou so don't hold your breath for more]]. Meanwhile, ''Shiren 5'' had a December 2010 release, less than a year after the previous game. It was the first ''Shiren'' in a while to be published directly by Chunsoft themselves.

* ''Shiren the Wanderer [[GaidenGame Gaiden]]: The Swordswoman Asuka!'' (2002, [[UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast Dreamcast]], PC) -- Asuka, from "Shiren 2", and Koppa have their own little adventure in Tenrin County, where they encounter ninjas and some sort of plant demon. Also, there's a massive post-game. This is notable for being the only Shiren game where he isn't the player avatar.

* ImportGaming: The only way you'll get to play any of the games besides the first and third if you're not Japanese. But it is surprisingly easier to import this particular game, as even if you understand Japanese, it's mostly just trial and error; and most of the games are on the region-free DS. [[http://shiren.wetpaint.com/ (And there are translations on this website.)]]

** Except in one part of "Shiren 3", but [[spoiler: that's because a dragon god possesses Shiren and speaks through him]]. Later in Shiren 3, for the game-loading narration post-game, Koppa tries to get Shiren to talk, fails, and then pretends Shiren is talking and complimenting him.
* {{Highly Visible Ninja}}: However, Oboro makes up for it by transforming into someone you would never expect; like a shopkeeper. Of course, when she's not disguising herself, she is ''quite'' visible.

** In "Shiren 3", there's an optional Easy mode that lets you backtrack to a recent save instead of losing everything. "Shiren 4" also introduces some kind of insurance system for gear and items.
