KONAMI announced that it will unveil a returning series at Tokyo Game Show (TGS), which many believed to be the horror classic Silent Hill 2.
Rumors of a Silent Hill 2 remake being developed by the company have been around for a while, but the mystery games weren’t from that series.
Fans were still happy with the announced returning games as they are fan favorites from the original PlayStation era.
Both Suikoden and Suikoden 2 will be remastered into a new pack called Suikoden 1 & 2 HD Remaster: Gate Rune & Dunan Unification Wars.
The Suikoden series is a popular Japanese role-playing game series whose fifth and final game was released for the PlayStation 2 in 2006.
While the PS2 games are well remembered, especially Suikoden 3, the first two games for the PS1 are the most popular.
JRPGs were en vogue on the PS1, with many long-running series such as Final Fantasy and Persona finding their home there.
Although Suikoden games are no longer in production, they were considered some of the best of the era.
The original games were created in 2D pixel art graphics, which the new games will retain.
However, there will also be new 3D graphics designed for part of the overworld, as well as animations during combat.
New cinematics have also been created, complete with updated graphics and animations.
No specific release date has been given for the remaster, but it will arrive in 2023 on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
Separate updates for the current-gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, were not announced in the presentation.
A spiritual successor to the Suikoden series received a lengthy gameplay trailer as part of Xbox’s TGS showcase.
Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes is also scheduled for release in 2023,
It will be available at launch for Xbox Series X|S via Xbox Game Pass.
