Suikoden fans who can't get enough of their favorite RPG game series

May 19, 2015

Another year, and another round of Suicon event has come and gone, but not forgotten. Each year fans of what has to be the best RPG game series ever created by Konami gather from around the world, and meet up with each other to celebrate. The event usually includes cosplay outfits, discussion, and well just a darn good time spent with one another. Fans will bring their Suikoden related items with them, such as swords, models and figures, and even sometimes the famous 108 stars itself. Talk about dedication!

This year's event was no different, as fans from the Philippines gathered for the get together where you can win prizes and merchandise. But for those who missed it, or just want a convenient way of getting together with like minded fans of the series, you still have plenty of time for Suikoden Day this year. That's right, fans and many members of the Revival Movement will be on Facebook for discussion, contests, cosplay, and art sharing.

The event takes place once every year, kind of like a holiday for Suikoden, and you can get in on it this November for the competition. Here are the instructions and rules for this years Facebook event.


Suikoden Day 2015 Competitions:

All entries for the following competitions may be submitted from November 11 to November 16, 2015. This six day time period is given so that entrants will have ample time to prepare and to finalise their entries. Prizes will be announced as soon as possible.

Note: A contestant may enter as many competitions as they like, but may enter only one piece of work for each.

  • Competitions are open to all Suikoden fans from anywhere around the world.
  • Entrants are agreeing to their work being posted to all Suikoden Day social media accounts. Bear in mind we will ALWAYS credit you, so provide links with your entry if you’d like us to redirect fans to where they can find more of your work.
  • If you would like to post it on Facebook, you are allowed to do so, as long as it is uploaded correctly. If not, we will be the ones to post it in your place (some people are touchy about privacy, so we respect that). Please just tell us in your e-mail if you will post it on Facebook by yourself or not. 
  • Barring any unforeseen circumstances beyond the Organizer’s control, the announcement will be given two to three weeks after Suikoden Day.

  • Lastly, if the two winners (first prize and second prize) wish to do so, they may talk about it and exchange some of their prizes with each other. This has happened in previous years, so we leave it up to the winners to talk about what they want. Take note that both parties need to agree to this and inform us right away.
