Making the original Shiren category available on Twitch
The remake of work, Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer (IGDB ID: 78341, NDS Shiren) appears on Twitch, but the original, Fushigi no Dungeon 2: Furai no Shiren (IGDB ID: 103496, original Shiren), is registered with IGDB but does not appear on Twitch. NDS Shiren is not just a port, it's a completely new remake, and there's no way original Shiren can be broadcast under the NDS Shiren category.
Twitch shows other remakes, but why doesn't it show Shiren? The reason may be that it's considered an alternative to other games, as shown on the following page.
Even if it's just a diff, I think it's strange that Twitch doesn't show the original title and shows the remake.

Maybe my English was bad, but when I looked back at this comment, I noticed that AnimeCwboy seemed to refer to Shiren 3. I was talking about the original Shiren published in 1995, SFC. He told me to edit the page and submit it as a remake, but when I checked the NDS Shiren page, it was already registered as Remake. Therefore, let me explain again without re-editing the page.
Again, I mean the problem is that the Shiren category isn't available on Twitch, only NDS Shiren, which was released as a remake. I'm sure NDS Shiren is definitely one of the remakes.
"Shiren the Wanderer", known as Shiren 3 in Japan, is the first Shiren series to be released in North America and does not have numbering. NDS Shiren, a remake of SFC Shiren, was released later in North America, but it was called "Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer" because "Shiren the Wanderer" was already in use.
The title available on Twitch is "Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer". However, this NDS Shiren is completely different from the original in many ways including systems and monsters, and we would like to use the original Shiren title "Fushigi no Dungeon 2: Furai no Shiren" on Twitch, but we can't. It is already registered with IGDB.
In other game categories, both originals and remakes are mostly available on Twitch. If there are any ports, one of them is often unavailable, which is not different from Twitch's description, and I don't dispute that.
NDS Shiren is a complete remake of SFC Shiren, and we believe that the two are not related to the port and the original. We really hope to see the original SFC Shiren category, "Fushigi no Dungeon 2: Furai no Shiren," become available on Twitch. If this isn't IGDB ’ s job and we need to appeal to Twitch in a different way, please tell us how.

Thank you for your comment. However, NDS Shiren has already been registered as a remake, and I looked at the page you told me, but I don't think it fits the remaster definition. I'll leave it to IGDB to decide, but I still believe NDS Shiren is a remake.
Looking at the 2 games themselves, it's hard to justify it falls into the Remake Game Type per the rules defined in the IGDB contributions. (Particularly saying it is built from the ground up and started over in a 2 year difference of release.)
If you feel this is is still in error, you can submit an edit on the pages to classify it as a Remaster/Remake (Expanded Game might be more likely). Be sure to leave a comment on the edit as to why you feel this is a necessary change. (beyond getting it on Twitch).
