The Real Criteria for --spoiler--

Suikosource community member psychedelist compiled a number of corrections to Suikoden II information on Suikosource. One of the corrections pertains to a certain late-game event that famously requires the player to pick a dialogue option very fast before it goes away. We now know the criteria for getting through this event successfully in more detail! You can see the spoilerific details on the Suikoden II Secrets Page

We're back!

Suikoden III Data Transfer solution

Upset that you can't load your data into the newly released PS2 Classic version of Suikoden III and get the extra plays? Don't be. Thanks to John Layfield of Gensopedia you now can.

Thanks to his creation of a base save you can now start a new game with data from Suikoden I and II, though you won't be able to change the names of McDohl and Riou. Do note that you will lose any progress you've made thus far if you overwrite the save so you will have to start over.

Instruction and files for both US and EU found here

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.

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:
