The Suikoden 1 and 2 HD Remaster has been delayed. It was originally scheduled to be released in 2023, but Konami has announced that it needs more time to ensure the quality of the game.
In a statement, Konami said, “We would like to thank Suikoden fans everywhere for your ongoing passion and support for the Suikoden series. Regarding the planned release of Suikoden I & II HD Remaster: Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars, we have reached the conclusion that despite the very best efforts of our dedicated development staff to release the Remasters in 2023, additional time is needed to ensure the quality performance and gameplay experience our users deserve.”
The company did not give a specific release date for the game, but said it is still targeting a release on modern consoles and PCs.
The Suikoden series is a popular Japanese role-playing game (JRPG) franchise that was first released in 1995. The first two games in the series, Suikoden and Suikoden 2, are considered to be classics of the genre.
The HD remaster will feature improved graphics and sound, as well as new features such as a text backlog, auto battle mode, and high speed mode.
