Suikoden   Legend of Suikoden

Wednesday, July 27, 2005


After nearly three years of downtime, the Legend of Suikoden is finally back online. I apologize for the long downtime, but during that time, I have been extremely busy with university work, as well as not being able to find any webspace for the Legend of Suikoden. However, these days, I have had some time to setup some webspace for the Legend of Suikoden. The new URL is I know it is quite long, but this will have to do for the time being. Here are the poll results of the last question before the downtime:

Question #10: "Since Konami is not planning on translating the Genso Suikogaiden volumes into English, will you be importing them from Japan?"

1.) Excellent! Suikoden III is better than its predecessors! - 33% (28 Votes)

2.) Great! Suikoden III is on par with its predecessors! I already have one of the Genso Suikogaiden volumes - 35% (30 Votes)

3.) Good. Suikoden III could have been better. - 14% (12 Votes)

4.) Bad. I do not like Suikoden III. - 4% (3 Votes)

5.) I have not yet purchased the game. - 14% (12 Votes)

Total Votes: 85 Votes

I set up a new poll question regarding Suikoden IV. More updates will occur later on.

There have been many little changes to the website, mostly minor visual updates in the navigation bar. I have created a new logo for the Legend of Suikoden, since I felt the previous logo was looking a little bit bland. Another reason for replacing the logo was that someone was ripping off the Legend of Suikoden logo and using it for their website (whom I had asked to remove the logo, but refused to comply), which can be seen here: David's Legend of Suikoden. The Links page has been updated, since many of the sites listed there no longer exist or are dead links. I have also added the Suikoden IV and Rhapsodia pages. The Art Gallery section are currently available. For those who are unfamiliar with Rhapsodia, it is the upcoming strategy RPG game set during the timeline of Suikoden IV.

Also, the Legend of Suikoden now is affiliated with the Dominating Twins: Quality Ragnarok Online Guild, which is a online RPG guild who is active on the Quality Ragnarok Online servers, a popular, private Ragnarok Online server. The Message Board is no longer the main forum for just the Legend of Suikoden, as it is also used by members of the Dominating Twins: Quality Ragnarok Online Guild, so the message board has been appropriately re-named to Yoon's Corner. At the moment, I am looking for extra moderators for the message board. If you are interested, please send me a private message in the forums or e-mail.

IGN: Suikoden Tactics Preview

IGN PS2 has recently posted its initial preview of the English version of Suikoden Tactics (formerly Rhapsodia):

"As one of several announcements made at its annual Media BBQ today, Konami revealed that its Suikoden-based strategy/RPG Rhapsodia would be coming to domestic shores this November. To be known more formally as Suikoden Tactics when it arrives here in America, the English version of Rhapsodia is nearing competition and is already in its final production stages. Luckily for us, Konami is well aware that IGN readers are longtime fans of the series and have given yours truly a cool hands-on sneak peek so that I could see firsthand what the game was all about."

There have been many changes to the website layout. First, most website picture files have been reduced in file size, so the website should load slightly faster. The Home page will now display the upcoming release dates, as well as game and website updates. The former website greeting has been moved to a separate About page. The former Rhapsodia section has been re-named to Suikoden Tactics, as Konami has announced its intentions to release the game in North America and Europe. The Links section has been removed, since most of the links were dead anyway. The Products page has been changed into the Soundtracks page.

Updated the Genso Suikogaiden - Vol. 2, Genso Suikoden - Card Stories, and Suikoden Tactics home pages to display their release dates.

Wow, another Suikoden game already!? Not that I'm complaining, of course, but it is surprising to hear that Suikoden is already on it's fifth installment.

Yet another announced Suikoden game! This time it's a PSP port of the classic Suikoden I and Suikoden II! From the screenshots shown from the Official Genso Suikoden I & II Website, it seems to be a straight port from the original games. No word yet on it's release date or whether it will be released outside Japan.

"Konami has opened the Japanese teaser site for Suikoden I & II for the PSP. The game has not recieved a release date or a price, and no details are available for the game. We have archived the 18 pictures from the site below. Check them out!"
