'Operation Blinking Mirror' To Flood Konami With Suikoden Greatness
The Suikoden Revival Movement will not go away, and of that we are glad.
As Beefjack reports, their newest campaign is called Operation Blinking Mirror and it is set to kick off this winter in order to allow the fandom to prepare for an awesome onslaught on Konami Japan in favor of more Suikoden.
What is Operation Blinking Mirror about? How can I participate? You may ask. From Co-founder Chris Holmes:
“From December 10 to December 12, we’re going to have a massive mailing campaign to KCEJ, Konami Japan’s headquarters. Now, you can just send a letter if you want, but Suikoden Day showed the massive creative potential within all of [the Suikoden fandom]. So, we encourage you to send anything.
“From CDs with your own arrangements, to artwork, even cosplay pictures – just anything creative you can think of – send it out to Konami Japan on these days.”
If you think that it's just a few fans tinkering around think again, this movement has some heft with over 13,700 followers on Facebook and plenty of industry recognition. Holmes describes the group thusly:
“From what started off as a band of a couple of hundred followers, has now – in true Suikoden fashion – turned into an almost full-scale army.”
If you want to be a part of the campaign to resurrect the only JRPG this writer thinks could compete with the old Final Fantasy games check out Operation Blinking Mirror's own Facebook page.
