According to a new rumor from GameFront, Konami is working on a new Suikoden and its heading to the PSP. The respective title appeared on a Japanese retailer's system but the entry has been deleted. It may be announced this week.
It wouldn't make sense to not have it on a Playstation platform.
i hope its fake. i want it on ps3.
I don't know, I feel like its been too long in the making for it to just go onto the psp. Unless the Suikoden developers were working on something else after V?
According to SARS (Suikoden fansite) the staff for Suikoden hasn't be re-affected to any other positions and no new Konami games have had their names in the credits as of late. They could be having this game come out as a gaiden and the next numbered game is coming to a current-gen console.
I'm sure A suikoden game will be on psp. But the major bulk of the series will be on the ps3. That's just my opinion.
if that ever happens, I guess I will get myself a psp. Suikoden is my favorite jrpg franchise, even better than ff imo.
One of the main reason I got psp was to play suikoden I and II on the PSP. Both are epic and great games, can't wait to try suikoden 4 if it comes out.
You mean Suikoden 6?
I actually want a Suikoden for PS3, but I guess it's fine for PSP. (As long as it's not for Wii, DS or 360, it's fine.)
I agree, the only platforms that it should deserve to be on are the ps3 and psp. I wish it will be on the ps3 though since it just feels more natural playing jrpg on a non-handheld console.
Buying it day and date! Suikoden is the best RPG ever made hands down ad bar none! Alundra a close 2nd but it's action/rpg.
First time I ever agreed with you here. Suikoden is the best. I personally love 2 and 5 the best.
automatic bubble for giving Suikoden 1 props. As much as I echo Obama's sentiments with regards to Suikoden 2 and 5, I feel like too many fans started with 2 so they never got to experience 1 when it first came out. If they did, you'd probably hear a lot more calls for 1 as the best of the series. Bubble to you too Obama even though you didn't rep 1. Still, 2 is one of my favorite games of all time (if you can't tell by my username/pic).
All hail Prince Luca Blight. I like Suikoden 1 but Suikoden 2 was my favourite game off all time only Okami has come close to it. Suikoden 5 is my second favourite game followed by Suikoden 1 and finally Suikoden 4. Bubbles for all Suikoden fans a rare breed we all are.
I hope its a side story and not Suikoden 6 though. But it does make sense financially. 2 mill PS3 owners in Japan. 10 million PSP owners there. Yea the Ds has 20 mill users but I doubt a card can hold 108 characters and all that story and dialog.
Well the original PS1's memory cards were 128KB and modern day PSP flash cards are considerably larger. I have one that's 2GB so I'm pretty sure it'd be able to hold that much data. ;)
Sure you can find a flash card to hold the data. But is it financially feasible to ship 500k to 1 mill copies of a game on them? Or is it cheaper to stamp out a bunch of umds for a couple of cents each?
I paid about 20 dollars for my stick. As for storing data, the memory stick would only hold some game information flags like what characters you've got. The UMD is what holds the actual game and everything contained therein.
Awesome, can't wait for a new Suikoden. It might actually turn out really good on PSP, I'm hoping they go for the old 2D design!!
neogaf seems to be reporting that they saw this originate on 2ch. I'd take this entire bit of news with a grain of salt the size of Texas state. Remember, they're the ones who said Suikoden 6 was coming to Wii and the subsequent rumor that Famitsu was to have info about Suikoden in its "next issue". In the extremely remote case that this game IS real, it's likely not Suikoden 6. A new Suikogaiden game? Maybe. A new main-series game? I don't think so.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. This is the worst news of the day. >.<
I'd like a new Suikoden that looks like 1, 2 or 5.
I would rather have it for the PS3 but Japanese developers have more faith on the PSP now that it is selling like crazy in Japan. I have a PSP so I don't mind since I played the PS1 versions on PSP but I rather prefer a next-gen outing than a handheld game.
