After teasing the return of a beloved game series, Konami delivered the goods at this year’s Tokyo Game Show: in 2023, it will release remasters of classic RPGs. Suikoden Y Suikoden 2.

Suikoden 1 and 2 HD Remaster Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars — yes, that’s the title of this combo release — will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, and Switch. The remastered visuals feature new lighting and atmospheric effects, shadow animations, and updated character portraits redrawn by original artist Junko Kawano. The sound has been enriched and the games will feature some quality of life improvements common to JRPGs of this era, including auto-battles and fast-forwarding.

More significantly for Suikoden fans, it appears that the games’ English translation has been redone; the localization of these games is famous, yes sometimes amusingly, horrible. This fact was not included by Konami in the press release, but is evident in gameplay footage obtained by IGN.

The Suikoden series saw five main games and several spin-offs between 1995 and 2012, but hasn’t been heard from in 10 years. Eiyuden Chronicle, a spiritual successor made by several key creators to the original games, will also be released next year. That project raised over $3 million on Kickstarter, which could have prompted Konami to reconsider Suikoden’s popularity and greenlight this re-release.
