So, at first I was going to do Arshtat. Then the Maximillian Knights invaded. Unfortunately it took a bit to actually put Fred in a pose that he would cooperate with. Originally he was gonna be fighting a monster, but it wasn´t working out, so he gets fireballed instead. ^_^; Done in Painter and Photoshop. Making fire is fun.

Suikoden II finally coming to PSN?

Suikoden II may be heading to the PSN store soon as it has been rated for the Playstation 3 from Sony by the ESRB. This is either a good indication it's coming as a PSOne Classic or a mistake. We at Suikosource are holding our collective thumbs it's the first.

This would only apply to the US Playstation Store at the moment.

The Suikoden Revival Movement

With a the PS4 having just been announced and the last numbered Suikoden game being a PS2 title it seems as if Suikoden is in a bit of a slump. Some of the members of this forum have taken Project Rainfall as inspiration to start their own movement to get Suikoden back on its feet.


The gaming media has taken notice and a few articles have been written on them and the  movement:

Kotaku 1

Kotaku 2

Interview with Miki Higashino

The composer of Suikoden I and II, Miki Higashino, gave an interview to Square Enix Music Online. In it, she talks about her life and work as a composer, her approach to composition, and experiences working on several different games (including the Suikoden series).

It's a great interview (kudos to Chris Greening). Read it and discuss on the forums!

New Suikoden game announced for PSP

Just announced today at the Tokyo Game Show 2011! I apologize if the source of the info is not very good, as there has been a flood of posts all over the fan communities. Pesmerga at suikox put together a nicely organized post...

Siliconera.com translates the game’s title as Genso Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century. duckroll at suikox translate it as Suikoden: Centennial Tapestry.

Based on the information, the game will likely follow the same story mechanics of Tierkreis (hundreds of worlds, Mark of the Stars).

"Konami’s Suikoden Team Disbanded"

While conducting an interview on 4gamer for their new upcoming RPG Frontier Gate a couple Konami employees stated that they were designing Frontier Gate from scratch as they had previously disbanded their Suikoden team and had therefore lost all their RPG-creation know-how.

Needless to say this is grim news for the Suikoden community. But, it does not mean a new team cannot take over the Suikoden name later. Konami has done this before with other franchises, such as Silent Hill. There is also still the possibility of re-releases of existing content and side projects, such as the Pachislot machine.

You can discuss your feelings further on our forums.
