"The Holy Bible calls 6-6-6 the 'mark of The Beast.' I call it a reminder, 'Oh yeah, there are no 6th installments of Wild ARMs, Suikoden, or Breath of Fire.' Here’s a breakdown of the situation." -RPG Land's Heath Hindman
I'd be way excited for even just one of these to be announced in 2011, though they do seem sadly unlikely.
Final Fantasy VI . . . . . ...Remake
No, just no.
I can't say I disagree with the article, I'd kill for a new sequel to any of those. Wild ARMs V was awesome, but yeah it's been years since a decent sequel to the other series has shown up. I loved the BoF series on the original PS but hated the 5th one on PS2. As well I adored Suikoden (all of them) on PSone and PS2, but detested Tierkreis. I couldn't stand the whiny teenage voice actors; it just drove me away. I've actually stopped playing my current gen systems and gone back to playing my original PS for my RPG fix. FFVII and Alundra for now, but I've been seriously considering starting up a game of BoFIV. Come on you Japanese devs, there's gotta be someone out there who can still make a good traditional JRPG...
I am still waiting on all three of them to be announced. Screw Tales even though I'm still proud of owning them. Sony - Wild Arms Konami - Suikoden Capcom - Breath of Fire (this one seems more unlikely) Square Enix - Front Mission 6 Sigh....Square enix can simply eat shit and die along with Capcom. Although I did enjoy Dead Rising 2, I don't think Capcom is really getting anywhere. If socom does pick up Resident Evil, then I am no longer going to buy any RESIDENT EVIL games from them. That's not how you treat your potential "CUSTOMERS."
Its probably time, depending on how vsXIII turns out, that we accept that Square is dead. They're really just milking themselves at this point.
come on they are dead you just dont want it to be ! stop giving them a chance R.I.P square
Know Square would simply dismiss it, but I wonder what the general reaction would be if the call was begun for Square fans to hold a funeral for their dead creativity? Would Western and Eastern fans unite? @jc48573: And yeah, if Capcom is at the point where they're actively di*king around their fanbase for attention, they sorely need to go away.
with Suikoden experience to even make a half-way decent game?
. Ever since Yoshitaka Murayama (creator, producer, writer, & director) from Suikoden 1 & 2, the rest Suikoden games lacks it's charms compared to 1 & 2......... : / I've played all Suikoden games, but the non Murayama Suikoden game I loved is V. III is... Good. IV is the least. Spinoffs, Rhapsodia (Suikoden Tactics) & Tierkreis are also decent.
You should know that Murayama actually completed Suikoden III. He's not credited because he left prior to release, but he said in a recent interview that he didn't abandon the project mid-production.
Yea Murayama was there for III. I think you're exaggerating just a bit about the series. IV was really the only installment that wasn't up to snuff. III was fantastic, though different, and V was a return to it's roots and up there with II as one of the best. It's not like Murayama was the only person involved with Suikoden. There's plenty of talented employees that are responsible for the games, and they're still capable of making a great Suikoden. They need to hurry up and make Suikoden VI. Hopefully for 3DS, as I'm not so sure Konami would be willing to invest all the money to create a Suikoden console title. But 3DS would be just fine, I think it would retain a lot of it's old school charm that way if the graphics arent super next gen.
At least give me Suikoden II on PSN already UUUUUUUHHHHHHHH. >_<
Agreed.I'm not paying 200 dollars just for Suikoden 2
Sigh...I paid 100 for my copy, which is considered a bargain by most. half.com is the best place to find them.
I paid 15 bucks for mine, mint condition :). This was not long after it came out, I found it in the used section at Gamestop. Yea, that was a looong time ago, one of the best finds ive ever had.
Actually, the number of the beast has been revised by many after the discovery of the earliest known papyrus from the Book of Revelation, which states the number is 616, not 666. So blah.
Only one I'm interested in is Suikoden 6. Wild Arms sucked after 1.
Final Fantasy X is better,ya?
you're getting off topic here.
Actually my 2 Favorite RPGs on ps2 were Wild ARMs 4 and FFX I didn't like WA5 that much... But I played Wild ARMs 4 like 10 times in a row trying to unlock everything... gotta love games with new game + like Chrono trigger too xD
give me suioden 6..where is the team that made suikoden 5 ?? ..they were on the right track !!!
Doesn't Sony own dark cloud,wild arms? How come they don't do anything with them?
wild arms didn't sell well
With the lack of JRPGs announcing Wild ARMs 6 for PS3 will sure sell a lot!
people will disagree with me, In my opinion Lost Odyssey really deserve a sequel. this game saved Japaneses RPG.
I agree... that game is fantastic. One of the best storylines I seen in any JRPG. And classic turn based combat! Can't go wrong with that XD
I want Suikoden VI. There is a decent chance of an announcement next month.
Suikoden is very dear to me. I love 1 and 2 to this day and have fond memories of being held up in my room playing through them both many, many times on psone. However, Suikoden 3,4 and 5 never held my attention. They lost their way and their charm and style. They became just like everything else out there and shifted their focus onto a more cinematic experience, rather than an adventurous one. I wish they'd go back to the 2-d overhead sprites and ditch the flashy junk. Suikoden 6 would be great if it were on Ps3 and utilize sprites and an over world map.
I want a Suikoden6 with the same character designer that design Suikoden5 characters!!!!!
Just make it a hybrid of Suikoden II and Suikoden I... maybe with a little Suikoden V in there... Viktor I miss you!
I miss the Star Dragon Sword/Victor interaction. Also Neclord.
I really want Breathe of Fire 6 3 and 4 were amazing
now that Inafune's gone maybe we can start taking steps for BoF6.
Suikoden VI HAS TO HAPPEN
please let there be a Suikoden VI and make it exclusive to the PS3
