Konami is expediting Suikoden: Tierkreis’ localization. We already have some screens of the English build which is on track for release in North America this March, around three months after the Nintendo DS game comes out in Japan. Your quest in Suikoden: Tierkreis is to gather the 108 Stars of Destiny (again) to overthrow One King who wants to wreck the universe.
As a twist you can loan your collected warriors to other players via Nintendo Wi-Fi. When you send a unit out it leaves your party to travel to another person’s game. Eventually the character returns bearing treasure and hopefully some new abilities. The community feature sounds novel, but followers of the Suikoden series might be disappointed to hear this is a spin-off that takes place across parallel worlds outside of the main series.
