Then you've been wrong :wink:

To pronounce it, it is as Komataguri said.Essentially, you pronounce each of the letters in the alphabet. So you seperate it into the Su - i - ko - de - n.

This site has an interesting pronunciation guide, with sound files.

Look for "Suikoden".

Same here, the Suikoden sound file is broken. Or do they have to be downloaded?

Here in Bosnia and Herzegovina we have a rule: Read what is written, and how is written, and writte how you talk. So, it's totaly diferent from English, French, Italian,... In our language, every letter stands for one pronounce (does that word exists???). I guess that I always pronounced it exactly how it's suposed to. But then again, I don't know how to pronounce some names of the characters...

Su-ee-koh-den


IIRC

I'm pretty sure this is the correct pronounciation of it. Although everyone calls it "Su-ko-den" I believe that this is incorrect.

However, just like the food "gyros" pronouncing it correctly will probably create a misunderstanding as so many people butcher the pronounciation.

I pronounce it more "Su-ee-kah-den" but that's due to my accent more than anything else. "Koh" takes that weensy bit more effort to say.

I remember when I first learnt to say it properly (after my friend was adamant it was pronounced Soo-ke-don) was during the fight with Psycho Mantis on MGS. "So you like Suikoden, eh?".
