As reported on Siliconera earlier, Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century has a six character battle system. The game uses a turn based battle system where three characters are in front and three are in the rear.
The heroes in Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century are novice fighters who learn skills from their ancestors in battle. You can master eight different job classes: swordsman, magician, lancer, archer, martial artist, ninja, bard, and chemist. At dinner time you can also learn a sub job like blacksmith.
Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century comes out on February 9 in Japan.
