New Suikoden coming to PlayStation Portable

At TGS 2011, Konami announced a new Suikoden game for the PSP. The game doesn't have a release date or price set yet.

As PlayStation Vita prepares to take center stage of Sony's portable theater, the PSP is still getting a few last moments to shine. Games like Corpse Party and Persona 2 are still due, and at least one more high-profile franchise is getting a new release -- at least in Japan. At the Tokyo Game Show 2011, Konami announced a new Suikoden title in the works.

Push Square reports that the new title is called, "Genso Suikoden: Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki." Just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it? A date and price are still pending, and this might be a case of coming too late in the cycle to make it an English translation worth it for the company. Shacknews has contacted Konami regarding localization, but has yet to hear back at the time of publishing.

In the meantime, check out the debut trailer of the game below.

      I love Suikoden games but what the hell, I think its about time one comes out on the PS3 and not portables. I hate having to invest time in beefy RPG games on a portable. I still have yet to play Suikoden V and the DS version but I guess I'll be having to dust off my PSP for this one.

      It seems kinda silly to announce new PSP titles at this point.

      This is good news! Even though I don't own or plan on owning a PSP.

      Konami had announced a while ago that there may not be anymore Suikoden games because the the creative team no longer worked for them but that they were making attempts to get them on board again to make some more games. It looks like they may have done so meaning we might get another mainline game in the future.

      I would love to see a new entry as good as Suikoden 1 or 2, but I don't see it happening at this point. =[

        Unfortunately, it's very unlikely to be anywhere near as good as the 1 or 2. The series creator left Konami a long time ago and Konami has publicly said they no longer have a JRPG team. That's why they had Tri-Ace develop Suikoden Tierkreis. The trailer makes references to a hundred worlds as well, meaning it's probably something else in the same vein as Tierkreis. So it'll probably really suck.

          What they should do is just do a re-make of the first game. I'd be plenty happy with just that.

      Well, this just sold me. Vita will be a day 1 purchase for me.
