Not long after Konami announced The Sui Code and Suikoden II is getting an HD remaster, we’ve learned that the company is already considering future titles in the series.
A new interview with experienced enterprise developers Yasuo Daikai and Takahiro Sakiyama (Suikoden V’s director) confirmed that they won’t be waiting another decade before revisiting the beloved RPG series.
“I can’t say anything specific right now, but we didn’t really want to end with just the remaster,” Daikai told IGN. “So yes, I really want to keep making more Suikoden games in the future. So we hope that all our fans will root for us and support us, and we hope that we can live up to those promises and that you can enjoy them.”
When asked about the success of series creator Yoshitaka Murayama’s spiritual successor, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroeswhich was funded almost immediately on Kickstarter – the developers were reticent to reveal what got the remasters finally greenlit.
“When you think of Konami’s RPGs, you think of Suikoden,” says Daikai. “It has a lot of fans and it’s a really good product, so from here we want to make sure a lot of people are able to interact with the series we’ve made.”
The remaster of the first two games will launch sometime in 2023 for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
