In all seriousness though...
Konami doesn't seem to have a ton of faith in the series and therefore doesn't want to spend the money on a big game. Why not make Suikoden 6 a handheld game and go back to the 2D style sprites (not those ugly blocks that were Tierkreis) to cut down on development costs? It doesn't have to be a game with a big budget. It just needs to play well, have a great story, and feel epic.
Even though I'm not the biggest fan of a lot of the gameplay changes in S3... I admire that it was trying to take the series in a new direction in terms of gameplay. S4 and S5 stopped developing the gameplay and went back to a more classic style to a limited degree of success IMO. So I'd like to see some risks taken like S3 to push the series into the modern gaming era. I'm not saying that it needs to lose its traditions and what makes the games feel like Suikoden, but the gameplay can't remain stagnant.
I'd also like to see the series become less "anime." Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy anime from time to time... but Suikoden 1-3 never felt like they had glaringly obvious anime archetypes. In 4, 5, and Tierkreis you saw more characters become an anime archetype instead of a unique individual. Also, since Murayama left the games have become WAY less diverse. For example, Suikoden 4 and 5 had no darker-skinned people at all (at least that I can recall).

Suikoden IV had its issues, but I thought that it tried staying true to the overall tone of the series despite the lack of Murayama being obvious. I just wish that Kawano and her team had more time and budget to polish things up. It wasn't until Suikoden V that the writing became juvenile.

If you want hot and attractive clothes for the men... my favorite has to be Hugo's from S3. Dem patterns :3
I don't mind men wearing revealing outfits like the women do... I just want the outfit itself to look good! xD
