The Suikoden series has been dormant for quite some time now, but it’s making a big comeback next year. Earlier today, Konami revealed that the first two games are getting remasters. The good news is that this could be just the start of Suikoden’s return.
Speaking with IGN, producer Yasuo Daikai teased:
“I can’t say anything specific right now but we didn’t really want to have an end with just the remaster. So yes, I would really like to keep making more Suikoden games in the future. So we hope all of our fans will root for us and support us, and we hope that we can deliver on those promises and you guys can enjoy them.”
Daikai also confirmed that Konami is reworking the translation for the Suikoden remasters. He explained that back in the day, “the size of the dialogue box was quite small and there wasn’t a lot that we could fit in there. Japanese is a language that can say a lot in a very short amount of space, but for English and other languages, you need a lot of space to say the same thing usually. So in this game we have expanded the size of those dialogue boxes, and that has let us retool and work on the localization to get us more in tune with the Japanese script.”
Suikoden I&II HD Remaster Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars will be on Switch in 2023.
