Suikoden Revival: Help Resurrect A Beloved RPG Classic
When role-playing fanatics talk about the history of the genre, many will put Final Fantasy at the top of the franchise list. And rightfully so.
But for a lot of us, only one acclaimed series can be runner-up, and that's Suikoden, which debuted on the original PlayStation fifteen years ago and reached Suikoden V on the PS2 last generation. Since that time, however, along with the general decline and falling off of the niche genre this generation, we haven't seen a new installment for consoles.
And we may never again. Chances are, if Konami ever opts to bring it back, it'll be on a portable or mobile device, because such games aren't seen as full-budget productions anymore. But that doesn't mean the fans can't try. Case in point: The Suikoden Revival Facebook page, where the loyal followers are trying to remind Konami that yeah, they still exist, and yeah, they'd be more interested in a new Suikoden than another Call of Duty or even Final Fantasy. So step up and support the cause, and maybe your voice will be heard...
