Some information on Suikoden Tierkreis has come to light since the title was trademarked earlier this month. According to the rundown found on Japanese site "Game no Hanashi," Tierkreis will appear on the Nintendo DS and development is halfway complete. As with previous titles, there will be a variety of clans and character types, with the protagonist's goal being to reassemble an army of 108 recruits to fight the forces of injustice.
The game will include an overworld that characters can explore on foot, as opposed to traveling from place to place by selecting regions from a map. The characters are rendered in 3D, with 2D anime style portraits superimposed on the screen during dialog sequences. Character art for five of the protagonists has already been revealed and images are available at VideogamerX.
