Someday Suikoden: Tierkreis will be in English

suikodent Suikoden: Tierkreis is going international. Konami Computer Entertainment America sent out a press release confirming they will publish the Nintendo DS Suikoden game outside of Japan. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since Konami registered a trademark for Suikoden: Tierkreis back in August.

 

Only three members of the Stars of Destiny are around at the beginning of the game. Your task is to revive 108 of them and usurp an almighty king. Kings, they’re always evil. You have a lot of characters to control, but you don’t have to level up all of them alone. Characters can be sent on quests via Nintendo Wi-Fi where other members of the Suikoden: Tierkreis community pick up transferred characters and complete the quests. When transmitted characters return home they come back with new skills and treasures. This system reminds me of Fire Emblem’s troop loaning system, but it sounds deeper.

 

We’ll have to wait until an undetermined time to find out how this exactly works since Suikoden: Tierkreis does not have a specific release date in any region.

    Always loved the Suikoden series. I wonder if Konami has the cahunas to bring the series to the big leagues.

    This little tidbit annoys me, so please tell me what you think:

    “To streamline the experience, Suikoden DS makes use of a similar overworld map as Order of Ecclesia, allowing players to quickly move from section to section of the globe with a quick tap of the stylus or d-pad.”

    Like Suikoden 3/Tactics? I WANT TO FREELY WALK MY WORLD MAP.

    Ugh, that’s a shame to hear about such interesting wi-fi features in a game I’m interested in when the DS’s wi-fi is so terrible. Along with friend codes, I personally have never been able to connect to it because the DS doesn’t even support WPA (much less WPA2, which is what’s running at home and work…)

    Well, there´s the USB dongle as an alternative… You can find out about it here: http://episteme.arstechnica.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/39309975/m/632008517731/inc/-1

    I would explain it myself if I knew more about it, but it´s not something I´m familiar with…
