Suikoden came to be thanks to the ideas from Yoshitaka Murayama. He acted as director, producer, and writer on the series’ initial releases, but he also worked on later entries as well. Murayama ended up leaving Konami around two decades ago, but he’s not opposed to revisiting the series.

Speaking with Nintendo Everything, Murayama mentioned that the new JRPG Eiyuden Chronicle is his current focus and the fact that he’s in complete control of the IP is certainly a plus. At the same time, he would be “more than happy to work on another Suikoden game if the chance presented itself in the future.”

Murayama’s full words:
