Here we are again with another round of some awesome Suikdoen fan talk, and for yet another good reason. The best RPG game that took the gaming industry by storm has reached millions, and with it the fans are always wanting more.
Why is that? It has it all, passion, hate, betrayal, love, and a whole buffet of everything you could possibly want in a great role playing game. Since it was first introduced back in the 90s on the PS1 game console, it has made more waves than you could count, and even held its own against the popular monster which is the Final Fantasy series.
Since leaving Konami just before Suikoden III released, Yoshitaka Murayama was at the helm in directing and story telling of it all, and is someone who is highly missed and cherished by Suikoden fans alike.
So it seemed only logical to have a one on one interview with him about his greatest creation. Even recently he was working on a new game, and you can almost bet that his influence from his previous adventures are sure to make their way into it at some point.
So what is Konami doing now that the great Murayama is gone? Well, they are getting clobbered by Suikoden fans to bring back the series in some form or another, or at least get them to re-release the entire series on the Playstation store, which they have done with the first 3 games so far.
Let's push that number to 4 and 5 if we can, which is also one of the goals of the Suikoden Revival Movement. A group dedicated to not only keeping the spirit of the series alive and well, but to also one day (hopefully) make it so that another game is produced.
Many fans are counting on Suikoden VI, a goal that might one day become a reality if our voices are loud enough, and we can get Konami to not put so much focus on Metal Gear and whatever else they are doing these days.
In the meantime, why not take a close look at those rare interviews the Suikoden Revival Movement managed to get done, all thanks to a video upload from Casp O'saurus who did an examination of both of them, and was kind enough to share that experience with the rest of us.
You can't keep a good thing down, and as long as we do try and keep up the kind of enthusiasm that's been put out there already, we might just get our wish one day and wake up to a new Suikoden game sitting in our living rooms. An RPG fan can dream until then right?
In the meantime, why not drop by the official fan page for the series on Facebook, and make some new friends and keep up with what's new? We would love to have you.
