Suikoden bundle

The much-loved Konami RPGs, Suikoden and Suikoden 2, are getting HD remasters for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. The games are aiming to be released in 2023 as a bundle deal.

Konami made the announcement at the Tokyo Game Show. The full name for this collection is quite the mouthful: Suikoden I&II HD Remaster Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars. Just why? Why must we have these terrible and excessively long names?

The Suikoden pack seems like it's a bit more than a simple remaster yet not quite a full remake. There are some drastic improvements and upgrades to the visuals, including entirely new character drawings, upscaled sprites and environments, and new effects. The new character drawings are being done by the original character designer Junko Kawano. Audio is also getting improved thanks to more environmental audio as well as some more realistic battle sounds. There are also some gameplay improvements being added such as auto-battling, conversation logs, and double-speed battles.

Suikoden was first released back in 1995 for the original PlayStation. These games fall very much under the JRPG formula in most aspects. However, there are some additional gameplay mechanics like base management and army battle management.
