Let's just look at locations of previous games first.
Suikoden II (Jowston, referenced MANY times in Suikoden I)
Suikoden III (Grasslands/Zexen, got a lot of references in II)
Suikoden IV (Island Nations, references throughout the series)
Suikoden V's location will not be mentioned.
There have been references made to Kanakan since the original Suikoden, and we still know very little about it. Really, all we know is that there is a lot of wine there. I'm gonna post this site's info about it before I continue.
Kanakan is a place that exists south of Toran. It is said to be a warm place and is well known for its high quality liquor. Roundier Haia, who is Valeria and Anita's master in Falcon style fencing resides here. It is also said that a Sindar ruin lies hidden in Kanakan.Blue Moon wrote:Blue Moon's Comment:
A sad place that is almost always mentioned due to its liquor. Many wonder whether Kanakan is some island, or is part of some other land mass. Heck, I don't even know if it's a nation. By the looks of it, it might simply be a name of a pub located south of Rikon, where drunken sword masters give lessons.
Characters Bearing References to Kanakan
Now, already I see one thing that occurs in every Suikoden game, the Falcon Rune. Also, there is a Sindar Ruin there, something needed in basically every game (except for the original) I'm 89% sure that Kanakan will be the focus of Suikoden VI with all the references and un-finished business out there.
