New Information from the December Issue of Nintendo Power:

* Its design is comparable to previous Suikoden titles.
* Battle System controlled by d-pad or stylus.
* Co-op attacks still exist.
* Short, medium, and long-ranged attacks.
* Game progression mission based.
* Potch gained from completed missions, not dropped from enemies.
* Weapons bought instead of upgraded.
* No True Runes
* No one-on-one duels
* No strategic battles
* No re-occurring characters confirmed yet.
* Set in parallel world. ???


"This is a new game and it is completely different from previous Suikoden titles, so all the characters are new as well," emphasizes Saruta. "There are not any locations or stages from any previous Suikoden titles. The scene of the game is one of parallel worlds."

Our experience with Suikoden: Tierkreis has been very encouraging. Although the game seemingly came out of nowhere, it is a bona fide entry in the series, and it's worthy of the Suikoden name. The production values are arguably better than some of the franchise's console entries, and the payoff is likely to be one of DS's most compelling RPGs when it hits stores this winter.

Holy christ......

Konami must've been taken over by monkeys with Alzheimer's or something.

They seem utterly *determined* to fuck up every series they have.

I'm pretty sure they didn't screw up Metal Gear Solid...or Castlevania (the 2-D ones) and this game sounds decent to me.

I don't think MGS was ever set in an alternate universe.

Castlevania - Fighting game. Nuff said.

Hence why I said the 2-D ONES. Do you ever read what I post?

If you want to make a suikoden game the proper way, it needs to include the "suikoden feel".

What's the "suikoden feel"?

The Suikoden feel is like. This ancient chinese bandit king waterpainted feeling, with blue skies and clouds. Reality defying combat speed with all your characters attacking at once, appropriate visuals and gypsy music. Beautiful forests and huge mountains. Exploring the world and overcoming the tyrant Imperials with your rag-tag army of stick fighters.

The only suikodens like this have been 1 and 2.

What the fuck, no duels?  Those have always been my favorite parts of a Suikoden game.  It's a good thing my hopes weren't high to begin with, because that news certainly would have made them bottom out. :P

I'm glad I'm not excited for this, cause as a Suikoden game, it'll probably suck. This comes from the guy who ranks Suikoden IV as his third favorite of the series. I hope that Suikoden VI will eventually come out and be more faithful to the series though. I'm hoping at least that Tierkreis will be good just as a general DS RPG.

I'm not ready to write this game off yet. Its NEW SUIKODEN, dammit!
 
That said, this is some disappointing news. A parallel world? Peh.
 
Guess they wanna attract series newcomers, which is fine, but I hope they don't use this approach on VI.

Mission based storyline?  Bleh.  On top of removing duels, large scale battles and the strategy battles makes me sad.  I'll still buy it, sadly. :[

A shame this one won't really be connected with the other Suikodens, since it's actually of the few RPG series I play for the plot. But I'll still probably get it anyway.

Fuck - that first one especially makes it look like it's made for 10 year olds. Weak sauce.

Better, but not a lot.
