I read this very interesting article about Breath of Fire, Wild Arms and Suikoden and the likely hood or unlikely hood that another installment will ever be made. The article was written about a year and a half ago, and no announcements have been made, so it seems even less likely than before. But anyway, it got me thinking; Why isn't there more of a demand for these sequels? I mean, a Suikoden spin off is out in Japan right now that I'm sure we'll never see, but that's it.
So, I pose this topic to you all: How badly do you want these sequels? And in what order of importance would you put them in? Keep in mind how times and games have changed in the last 5-7 years--and how the games have changed within the series themselves. (i.e. Wild Arms turning to the hex grid battle system, Breath of Fire V's....interesting choices, and Suikoden's different spin offs)
Breath of Fire 6: I feel like this series has the most to gain and the most time to make up. I VASTLY did not like Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter. I felt like they took all the wrong steps into a bad direction. If they were to make another sequel, they wouldn't have to change much from the first 4 games, just update them a bit. And they could even keep the same idea of the graphics from before. It would be JRPG gold nowadays!
Wild Arms 6: I have always just loved this series. Even though I didn't exactly LOVE the hex grid battles they became, it wasn't TOO big of a change to get me to stop playing. Plus it has always kept the same themes that I enjoy.
Suikoden 6: The only reason I put this last is because I'm actually somewhat satisfied with this series as it is. I didn't care for number 4, but I feel like they nailed it perfectly with Suikoden 5. So if they left it off on a high note, it wouldn't be terrible. And anything extra would just be a nice treat.
What do you think?
