I'm almost tempted to pick up Skies of Arcadia to get a feel for the scenario writer before Suikoden V is released. At the same time, since people have said that it's good, I might try to be content, and assume I'll be pleasantly surprised when the new Suikoden comes out, since I don't really have the time or money to invest in a new RPG just yet...maybe in a few months.

I actually wasn't even sure if Lorelai had been confirmed yet, but both Lorelai and Killey? That's good news (even if I was never a huge fan of Killey)...I love returning characters. I'm really hoping to see Yuber and Pesmerga again, and perhaps with some more actual character work done with both of them (especially Pesmerga). I would love to see some more Viktor and Flik, but it's too early for them, especially Flik...

Yay Suikoden V.

Suikoden V already has one of the generals.


My bad. 5 Great Generals then.

Hmm; no mention of data transfer. Perhaps they don't know? Or it could be a surprise? Or have they stopped doing that sort of thing in the mainline Suikodens?


I'm not sure what could be transferred to another prequel.

Unless you could load from Suikoden IV and get some special scene with Jeane and Viki.

Bu that's kind of far-fetched. I wouldn't hold my breath for data transfer to S5.

Do we have any for sure time set yet? Other than the broad range based of Gerog's age?

I'm hoping Luc returns frankly :P Just as a minor character again. Since the events in 3, I just want a chance to use him again, since he won't be in any 'current time' games and such. Not specific reason for him to be there, but really, there never was, Leknaat just sends him to war. So it's possible? All depending on time I guess.

Sounds awesome.

And at the risk of sounding like an idiot, may I ask: what does the job of a game senario writer encompass? How much control does he have over the project?

And that's it. And after reading on IGN the senario for the game OZ, this guy seems like a good fit. The story sounded weird but cool. Hope for more of the same.

Great News. I always expected Killey to return for this game, but it is still nice to read that it has been confirmed. I wonder who the other returning characters will be.... that will keep me wondering for a while. I don't really know much about the director or much about Skies of Arcadia for that matter. Appartenly it is a pretty good game though so hopefully we can expect good things. I am also happy to hear that Skies of Arcadia is similar to suikoden in some ways. That is a big plus since it would make the transition easier for his work on suikoden. Anyway good news and thank you SARS.

This sounds really encouraging - I'm sure that having such a great writer in the game will make a big difference, so long as the story remains true to the Suikoden world this can only be a hit.

What appears to be a great story + impressive graphics + a tried and true loved battle system... what is there that could go wrong?

With the multiple story arcs this game seems it will have a LOT of replayability. So long as the game has some real challenges in it like the Luca battle I'm looking to this game as a return to "the playstation 1 era games" as he mentioned.

When official information says "unexpected," it tends to be relatively close to "expected" among fans (the same thing happened with Ted in S4).


Ted was a no brainer in s4, when The Castle was up I kept saying 'the returning chara that is so special is Ted" people told me its impossible.

anway, returing charas need to be from 1 or 2 right? unless they chose somone from 4, which could be hard because of that mortality thing.

I'm not sure when the game takes place, so no guesswork now.

anway I never played skys of arcaida, I can borrw a DC and play it though. But this is cool, lets see what soone else can do for Suikoden. But is it all that good of a plot? has anyone else been good?

The news of Suikoden V's today showed that this game is promising. I hope they do not ruined the game later.

Viki is there, I really want to see the her artwork.
Killey too. Ah I really hope they bring back Suikoden to the right track.

I just hope Killey still spins his swords before he attacks. Coolest regular attack ever.

Ha, I guess I'm the only one who doesn't care for Skies of Arcadia. It's a decent game, but I don't think the story was anything amazing, and the characters didn't show much depth. Suikoden's influence on the game can be felt, but only in the range of characters and battles, not the plot itself. That borrows more from Grandia than anything else.

Not that Suikoden V is going to suck, no. This guy's got better credentials than most of the people, and I'm pretty sure he's a fan looking at Arcadia. So at least he should be familiar with the series and the themes.

Actually Killey uses twin rods! Everyone assumes they are blades though since the 2D sprite doesn't show enough detail...

Hopefully they remember this for Suikoden 5 and don't give him twin blades. That would be a goof on their part!

Yeah, Skies is over rated, but still enjoyable. I wouldn't praise anything about that game, honestly. Very basic. Of course it did have to go through American localization, so maybe something was lost there.

Either way, that doesn't make me less excited by any means. I've enjoyed all Suikodens so far, even the ones that are hated so much. I don't see anything about this one that would lead me to think otherwise. Looks great.
