Konami might do that because they aren't known for polish (all the suikoden games are fantastic, but all are missing the kind of polish that other companies put into their big titles). Tierkreis had sales numbers, sure, but so did every game for the DS; is Catz a success because it has sales numbers? Gosh, I hope not.

Suikoden 2: 344,184 units sold
Suikoden 3: 377,729 units sold
Suikoden 4: 311,815 units sold
Suikoden 5: 192,297 units sold

Konami didn't even have enough preorders to warrant producing the franchise-spanning OST collection and I don't think I've seen them grant a license for any merchandise of note since Tierkreis beyond the poorly-received Pachislot game.
