Suikoden Tierkreis takes place in a parallel world and expands on the concept of infinity with heroes even traveling between DS game carts. How will this affect Suikoden series? We asked Osamu Komuta, Director of Suikoden Tierkreis, about the future of Suikoden.
“I think Tierkreis made Suikoden’s future truly infinite,” Komuta replies. “The game’s universe now lives in the ‘Infinity’ where it is possible for all the games to co-exist while leaving room for great growth and exploration in the series because both Tierkreis and the previous games are essential elements for the Suikoden universe. We hope to continue developing Suikoden games with the new freedom we are now afforded with the boundless nature of the ‘Infinity’.”
Of course this isn’t the first Suikoden game to incorporate other dimensions, but how do you feel about Komuta’s response? Do you want Suikoden to go back basics or appreciate Konami’s new freedom?
