Now, almost fifteen years later, we still see games rolling out frequently bearing the Suikoden banner. The have expanded the series to include card games, tactical RPGs and visual novels. It was just a matter of time before Konami decided to take the series to the Nintendo DS, but the question is: is the DS able to handle such a massive game? When playing Suikoden Tierkreis I was left with one answer: yes."
