Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Sep 162022

Believe it or not, Konami actually pulled through with an exciting announced at this year’s TGS.

While it wasn’t the rumored Silent Hill revival that I’m still not sure I believe in, they did announce a remastered collection of the first two Suikoden games.

Suikoden I & II HD Remaster: Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars will launch for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in 2023.

It features graphical improvements, redrawn portraits, field sounds, improved battle sounds, and gameplay improvements such as a dialogue log, an auto-battle option, and an option for double-speed battles. In an interview with IGN, they also confirmed that they will improve the translation for the remaster.

What’s even more promising is that they hope to make more Suikoden games in the future.

I played and enjoyed Suikoden, but have yet to play Suikoden II. Maybe I should wait for the remaster to come out after all. Here’s hoping this will only be the start of Suikoden’s revival.

Are you going to play the Suikoden remasters?

  1. I find it interesting that they are doing this revival of Suikoden right around when the original creators are making Eiyuden lol. But let’s see how it goes! I played the first two fairly recently so I probably won’t get the remasters, but could be nice to see more games coming from them.

  2. This is a better announcement than anything Silent Hill. It needs to be accepted that any new Silent Hill isn’t going to be anything special like when Team Silent was in charge.

    • Yeah, even if I accept that the rumors are probably true, I’m still skeptical of how good a new Silent Hill would even be. Some of the games after Team Silent had potential, though, so it’s not automatically a lost cause. I enjoyed Shattered Memories, despite how different it was from the rest of the series.

  3. […] With TGS approaching in less than a month, it might have occurred to you that it’s been a long time since we heard anything about the Suikoden I & II HD Remaster announced at TGS 2022. […]
