Personally, I'd be happy if they just added the "shop for everyone even if they're not in the active party" feature from later games into 1.

Based on info from the build that leaked, the games play exactly like the originals so party and item management are the same, there's no convoy etc, only addition was running without a Holy rune. But it's also an early build so it might change, there's apparently some lines that warn the player that if you switch to Classic mode there's no Party Items in Suikoden I so you need to move items before switching mode so they might be planning on doing more stuff.

Conversely, it could be something's that's already been scrapped because it didn't work with Classic mode. Seems like the ability to switch between Remaster and Classic mode might hamper the remastered games somewhat if they have to conform to the limitations of the originals, to the point that it might be better to treat them as separate games and only make the choice when starting a new game. We'll have to wait and see what they end up doing.

The biggest thing I am looking forward to seeing how they might redesign and upgrade the look of is the Lake Toran Castle base. From the trailer we have seen how much they have completely redone the backgrounds of areas like Leknaat's tower so I hope that Toran Castle will get a glow up as well.

Love the originals, but the Castle was a whole lot of brown on brown. Suikoden 1 itself had a problem with a lot of browns everywhere, but what we have seen so far looks much different and that excites me.

There was a Party Items section of the inventory in S1 though, no? For the Astral Projections, Odessa's Earring (marked "Earrings" in the inventory) and, most humorously, Kamandol's combustion engine is labeled simply "Prodigy" when you have to carry it to Rikon. I'm not remotely literate in Japanese but I always figured it must've been a kanji that the localization crew misread.

There is a party items, but it only has space for five or six items. (Maybe 7?)

The game doesn't let you select it or inspect items in there, which is a shame since they all have descriptions you never get to see.

Looks like they’re running a questionnaire on the Japanese page, any speakers know what they’re asking?

Nothing special. "How did you feel when you heard the announcement of Suikoden I & II HD?" "Are you going to buy Suikoden I & II HD Remaster?" type fare and what you want to learn more about next and any message to the team. Some generic questions about what games/consoles you have and history with the series.

I've been told by many an employee of Konami that I was an idiot, that I didn't "know what I was talking about" etc. Meanwhile I helped get Suikoden onto PS3.

We are all gonna get hurt on this one. People will insult us, people will slander and make fun of us. It's fine. The remakes will be the furthest thing from perfect. It's fine.

Are you familiar with Blaise Pascal and the theories of Probability and Non-transitive Mathematics? Well, I will spare everyone the lecture, but, our best bet for the future is here on these titles, at least in my estimation. That's how I feel, really.

To repeat: We are all going to be hurt, but, it will be fine in the end.

Edit: (Because maybe Im being unfairly harsh to Konami). The hurt would come if they make even more uneeded changes.

I like the window UI, it's clean and yes it does look like they made it in RPG maker, but I doubt they would go through the trouble of porting both games to RPGMaker just to create the window UI in Javascript and then port it back to the consoles / PC.

This release shows that they still care about the series that put them as serious RPG developers on the map.

(I wont however forgive them for releasing SV on the same week as KH2. That killed the series :((( )
