Fans are getting excited about a Suikoden announcement, but they might be in for disappointment

The scheduled Konami event at next week’s Tokyo Game Show has become a kind of video game Rorschach test. Everyone looking at it sees something different: surely it’s going to be about Metal Gear remasters (opens in new tab), or Silent Hill remakes (opens in new tab), or maybe they’ll just dedicate the entire thing to announcing they’re finally porting Symphony Of The Night to PC (it won’t be this, but it should be)?

But a slowly growing collection of circumstantial evidence has one neglected community excited that they might finally get a new entry in a series that’s been silent for a decade. Suikoden hasn’t seen a new game since Suikoden: Woven Web Of The Centuries released on PSP in 2012, but fans are daring to dream that the “world-loved series” that will get a new game at TGS might actually be the fondly remembered JRPG cult classic.
