So it was announced a few days ago that there would be a kickstarter for a spiritual successor to Suikoden, called Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, developed by the original creator from Suiko 1 and 2.

Well, the kickstarter went live yesterday and as of right now has almost hit 2 million US dollars, blowing past its initial ask of 500k.

I've been a big fan of Suikoden for almost 20 years now, and with Konami being they way they are, the thought of getting Suikoden 6 has all but died. But hey, this is the next best thing.

Yeah, I'm very very excited. Suikoden 2 is probably my all time favorite video game, period. I doubt anything will be able to top this as my most anticipated game for the next few years.

When it first came out it was going to be a kickstarter I was kinda worried, given everything that has gone down with that platform over the last few years. But after seeing the kickstarter it's clear they've really thought about how to budget this without overpromising and are aware of the pitfalls of the platform and previous successes and failures. I'm pretty confident this will turn out well.

Also the game is going to have a cooking mini-game like Suikoden 2, so it's basically already the best thing ever.

It seems really cool, and I backed it already. Some of their stretch goals worry me a bit though. Things like unlocking a cooking competition minigame makes me worry that it will be more of a greatest hits collection of Suikoden than a progression of those ideas. I mean, I'll enjoy it even if it is a best of compilation, so I'm not too worried.

The artstyle looks great, definitely way more than an RPG maker game here.

Suikoden 2,3 and 5 are great RPGs lost to time (probably forever thanks to Konami) so this could be a kickstarter to watch.

@rejizzle: Considering how long it's been since we've had a Suikoden, retreading that ground is probably a good idea before trying something new.

Haven't backed anything in quite some time, but this will probably get some money out of me.

Suikoden is a series I've always liked not loved so its quiet fading into the background never really hit me all that hard.

But this does look pretty rad, and also Fuck Konami.

I'm very tempted to back this and if I do it will be only my second time after backing the Hex TCG the better part of a decade ago which turned into a complete shitshow. Going to hold off right now though in the hopes that they show more than this combined 20sec of gameplay. That boss fight clip looks suspiciously good.

@nnickers: I wouldn't expect to see anything new before the Kickstarter ends. This is all very very early promotional mock-up footage. The game hasn't actually started development yet, so yeah, that battle footage probably isn't completely accurate to the final product. That's just the nature of video game development. Buy it's likely going to land a lot closer to that than say Mighty No. 9's early mock up art.

I never played the Suikoden series but I always wanted to. I finally got a PS4 but I found out that Suikoden II was only ported to PS3, not PS4 for some reason. This looks great! Combat seems neat. Love the art style. Also, cats.

Interesting that this is the first (to my knowledge) announced game for Switch 2. It looks like something that could easily come to Switch 1, though.

I am pretty excited for this. I have only backed three other things on Kickstarter so far, but this is one I am going to have to. The first two Suikoden games are incredibly high on my list of all time great games so this one I will get pretty much no matter what.

It looks pretty cool, I've only really played Suikoden 2 but I loved the story of it and I'll happily play a new game by the same writer. The graphics mock-ups are giving me strong Octopath vibes which seems a great fit. Probably gonna back this.
