Does a 'Suikoden team' actually exist? I'm thinking that the current members don't really have a clue as to what the last True Runes should be, and in my opinion a few True Runes already overlap too much (Sun and True Fire being an example). This is not to deflate your point, but I do wonder if the series could actually last that long and still be compelling.amelia108 wrote:Well, considering the rate at which IV and V were going rune-wise (one each) I think the team wanted it to go on pretty much as long as possible before revealing all 27.
The current loose ends could be very easily tied up during the recruitment of the SoDs involved (think Hix and Tengaar in Suikoden II). Two or three of the "big ones" (Jeane and Viki, maybe Yuber/Pesmerga) could be dealt with during the main storyline while still remaining true to the 'Suikoden method'. It would be difficult, but not impossible. There may be some other big mysteries I'm not thinking of at the moment, but Suikoden VI could always be more "epic" than its predecessors.I think the series probably needs 2 or 3 more games to fully end it. Trying to finish it with one game would just be rushing it, because there's a ton of loose-ends to tie up (satisfyingly) in one game and yet still fit in the regular war-torn story.
This is another possibility, but the end result (and probable reality) of a dead series is still there. I'd rather the series end when it's ahead, like Cowboy Bebop, rather than going on for all eternity, like Naruto. But, those are just examples and I don't want to go off topic.I say maybe test the waters again with VI and if it sells okay, then continue on with VII, and VIII, and make it some kind of "end trilogy." If it doesn't sell so well, just make VII and be done with it. That, or just go low-budget and produce them for PSP or DS (not spin-offs like Tierkreis). Seriously, they could probably go on forever doing low-budget regular entries, even if it is Konami's "flagship" RPG and that would be "lessening" it, as I know many will say. Frankly, I'd rather just the series be continued in any way possible at this point.
