Here's the translation.

Suikoden 5 - Release Date Unknown

Setting: Queendom of Falena.

Known Characters--

Arshtat Falenus: The hero's mother and the Queen of the Queendom of Falena. Not only is she a mother to her son, but she is also considered to be "mother" to all citizens, spreading her benevolence across the nation.

She is highly respected by her citizens and is condered to be an exceptional ruler, focusing her efforts on maintaining peace.

She resides in the "Palace of the Sun" which shines brightly night and day.

Rion: The hero's bodyguard. She learned her swordsmanship from a skilled master, and thus can hold her own against veteran warriors.

Hero: As the prince of the Queendom of Falena, he has lived a life without want. However, he is swallowed into turmoil due to a certain event that happens. He uses a three-piece-rod.

A Large Man: Seen in one of the screenshots with the hero, he is seen saying "A hah! Seems like you've been doing well."


Confirmed facts from the article:

You will be gathering 108 stars.

A ship is seen in one screenshot, but is powered by oars unlike ships from Suikoden 4. This suggests slavery as well as lower technology that the Suikoden 4 time frame.

Konami will be showcasing Suikoden 5 at TGS on September 17th and 18th.

That's all I got from the article. Usually, I can find more stuff out from screenshots, but these screenshots tell me amazingly little.

Edit: Fixed a funny typo

Oh yes, "Arshtat" is the Zoroastrian "goddess of justice." "Goddess" is actualy slightly off, because Arshtat is of a class of quasi-divine beings called the Yazata (sort of like angels in Christianity or bodhisattvas in Buddhism).

I'm truly happy for this news. There is lot of joy and happiness for Suikoden fans (like me) nowadays. Rhapsodia, and now that.

I'm almost crying, so happy i am.

Welcome Falena. Welcome Suikoden, once again!

I would wait for this game very much. Ahh... Georg, Lorelai, Killey? Are you there?

Ah, wonderful! I was expecting something like that, but somehow I missed trying for Arshtat. Wonderful research or knowledge, I hope the guys at Konami are as good :)

Something similar to Nanami's in Suikoden 2 maybe?

But to be honest, I find it a dumb move to announce the making of Suiko5 BEFORE the release of Rhapsodia. It sorta clashes with the whole "advertising for Rhapsodia" thing. But, this is not what the thread is about...

About the hero, tell me [i]please]/i] that that is NOT a guy using a three-piece rod. That seems so, well, Nanami. A suppose the maker of Suiko5 always wanted to make a boy, but after coming here, looking at all the requests for the hero to be a girl, decides to change the original plan, and made a girly boy. (the idea of the hero as a duck doesn't seen to fit the story well ^_^).

Seeing that the Queendom appears to focus a lot on the Sun alot (Temple, Palace etc), my guess is that the True Rune invloved may have something to do with the sun, like the Shining Sun Rune.

Also, fans SHOULD remeber that Morgan came from Falena too, not just the three more popular ones.

It's getting tougher and tougher to play Suikoden as the heroes look wimpier and wimpier. I thought the bowl cut was bad. This girly-man looks like he put a harmonian and Kariyan uniforms together and came up with this girltastic outfit.

That said, I can't wait until more info about Suikoden 5 comes out. Thanks Sars for the quick work you've done.

I find it kinda odd to see that the new hero this time had a girly type of face. At first I thought it was a girl but when I noticed the hero was the prince of the Queendom of Falena. I go like :shock:. Oh my goodness, it's a guy and not a girl! And the ship there looked a little like a ferry this time.

One possibility is that the Hero is in fact female, but the fact is being hidden to avoid being targetted by assassins/poltics (because a princess would be in line for the throne).

Hmm... The castle glows day and night? This might be something like the Beast rune. It's not attached to a person, but a place.

That...

And that Queen is five different flavours of sexy...

:shock: :shock: :shock:

My my, I think Suikoden is trying to give Final Fantasy a run for the money (In terms of "sequels" that is)

As long as the main character runs like a man (altough he looks like a girl) and I don't have to sail a darn ship 85% of the time, then I'll play this game.

Let's see what they show at TGS...

yes, whats that when guys pretend to be girls and girls to be guys. I think you are right, then that is the big schocker of the game "zomg the hero is a she!!" like Faris from FF v, "hes a she! oh no, *blush blush*"

Sounds like Mulan in China and Magatama (Spelling?) in Japan... It is a distinct possibilty, but seeing previous art of Suikoden, they had never once made a girl with a flat chest (in fact, they were overly-sized, excuse my vulgarity).

True he could be a she in desiguse. Anything is possible at this point.

but the queen has to die early. Given what we know of her character she's too nice to be tring to overthrow. The Prince might get blamed for her assanation. I mean think about every Suikoden hero has been wrongfuly acussed. saved S3 but that game had an untradtional method of telling the story anyway (but great too.).
