See the Blue Gate Rune in Suikoden I & II HD Remaster

Konami once again showed how a Suikoden I & II HD Remaster rune looks in-game, this time displaying the Blue Gate Rune’s power. As with past clips, this appeared following a poll on Twitter. Followers were able to pick which one of four they’d get to see, with the results again differing from the ones from a similar poll on the Japanese account.

The four options in the last poll were the Blue Gate Rune, Thunder Rune, Resurrection Rune, and Cross Attack. Of those, the Blue Gate Rune “won,” so a Suikoden I & II HD Remaster clip of Suikoden II gameplay appeared. In it Mazus uses the rune’s summoning magic to cast its ultimate spell: Empty World. This causes a monster to appear from behind the enemy group and fire a beam of energy to attack. The resulting attack does 900 damage to the opponents, but also deals 90 damage to every ally.

The Blue Gate Rune is a recurring staple of the Suikoden series, though it only is known by that name in Suikoden II. When it showed up in the third and fifth games, it functioned identically, but was called Pale Gate Rune.

As a reminder, when this poll came up in Japan, the winning response involved the Bright Shield and Black Sword True Runes.

Suikoden I & II HD Remaster Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars will release on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC via Steam in 2023.
