I had always wanted to draw more of the Queen´s Knights; they had personality, were unique, and not to mention very well dressed. Out of the women, my favorite has always been spunky yet mature Miakis. She struck me as an enigmatic character and surprised me with the duality of her personality, and was an obvious choice as a subject for this portrait.

The Suikoden Revival Movement

With a the PS4 having just been announced and the last numbered Suikoden game being a PS2 title it seems as if Suikoden is in a bit of a slump. Some of the members of this forum have taken Project Rainfall as inspiration to start their own movement to get Suikoden back on its feet.

The gaming media has taken notice and a few articles have been written on them and the  movement:

Interview with Miki Higashino

The composer of Suikoden I and II, Miki Higashino, gave an interview to Square Enix Music Online. In it, she talks about her life and work as a composer, her approach to composition, and experiences working on several different games (including the Suikoden series).

It's a great interview (kudos to Chris Greening). Read it and discuss on the forums!

New Suikoden game announced for PSP

Just announced today at the Tokyo Game Show 2011! I apologize if the source of the info is not very good, as there has been a flood of posts all over the fan communities. Pesmerga at suikox put together a nicely organized post... translates the game’s title as Genso Suikoden: The Woven Web of a Century. duckroll at suikox translate it as Suikoden: Centennial Tapestry.

Based on the information, the game will likely follow the same story mechanics of Tierkreis (hundreds of worlds, Mark of the Stars).

"Konami’s Suikoden Team Disbanded"

While conducting an interview on 4gamer for their new upcoming RPG Frontier Gate a couple Konami employees stated that they were designing Frontier Gate from scratch as they had previously disbanded their Suikoden team and had therefore lost all their RPG-creation know-how.

Needless to say this is grim news for the Suikoden community. But, it does not mean a new team cannot take over the Suikoden name later. Konami has done this before with other franchises, such as Silent Hill. There is also still the possibility of re-releases of existing content and side projects, such as the Pachislot machine.

You can discuss your feelings further on our forums.

Runes Listing

5 Runes

  • Compare all runes of the suiko universe. Look up how they evolve during all games they participate in, which were changed due to gameplay reasons or story issues, which re-appear at later games and how rare they are in each game when it comes to collecting.
  • All runes I can think of are listed, may it be true runes, minor stat modifiers or ones only relevant in the story.
  • Runes are sorted in Magic, Command, Effect, Special (story only) and Pieces.
  • Articles support the runes in several questions, including relationships to the suiko universe, gameplay tips, rarities etc.
  • Official images can be found, that is if any exist.
  • The gameplay charts are made from the scratch by testing recently and lists I made myself long ago. Only a small part is taken from info we had already on the site and in the forums. I did a lot of testing with elements and functionality of spells and effects in the games for that. Even some in-game descriptions were flawed (in particular in S2 ...), you'll find the correct information in here.
  • Gameplay information is as accurate as possible. There are only a few white spots when it was hard to detect a precise number (like percentages of some effects not given in the game itself).
  • Includes all effects, sources and wielders.
  • Trying to collect all runes in every game? This will definitely make your life easier!
