Suikoden II Coming to PSN

Travis Shrodes's Avatar Posted by KONAMI

Of all my years at KONAMI, I think the biggest request I’ve received by volume is Suikoden II. The “little RPG that could” released in North America in 1999 with a now infamous few units produced. Prices of the title have surged in recent years as fans and would-be fans have had tremendous difficulty securing a copy of the venerated title. It is then with great joy that I am able to announce that *deep breath* Suikoden II is coming to PlayStation Network as a PS one Classic in North America for the first time on December 9th.

The second entry of the series follows as a continuation of the story set in City-States of Jowston, where social unrest has led to a military uprising against the oppressive Highland Kingdom Military led by Prince Luca Blight. Players take on the role of Riou; a youth swept up in the politics and fighting that threatens to burn the countryside asunder. With his comrades Jowy and Nanami, Riou is tasked to recruit the 108 Stars of Destiny, heroes to stand by his side. Featuring three different battle types, mini-games and multiple endings, as well as a massive branching storyline, it’s no wonder it has earned such accolades as being one of IGN’s Top 10 RPG Storylines of all time.

Suikoden II will be made available to fans both old and new in their original format to all thanks to both PlayStation and our passionate and dedicated fanbase. Without your constant and overwhelming support this would not have been possible. I hope that you will share your adventures with us on the official KONAMI Facebook page and I will see you in the City-States of Jowston starting December 9th, #TEIEN!

@Gamerzlimited: “Lucky”? lol

This is a combined effort of positive gamers all over the Sony fanbase and BEYOND, spanned over many years.

Real question:

Will this game be fixed, or is it a direct disc-port of the Suikoden II that has a large slew of errors that’s only fixable via Game Shark and other similar cheat devices?

None of the errors are GAME breaking, but it has errors, such as music not playing when it should, and some items ,and enemies not appearing because of the bad coding that went into the translation.

BrendaShiori said:

December 8th, 8:23 pm

Thank you Konami :)

RyuZX said:

THANK YOU!

Finally.

THANK YOU!

I’m buying this as soon as the store updates. I even bought Gradius Collection for the Vita to show my gratitude.

If you’d release both Vandal Hearts games, as well as Intelligent Qube and One Piece Mansion, I’d buy them too. After those 4 my PSOne want list would be complete iirc.

Ok….

WHY is it NOT for europe. I’ve been looking in the store and it’s nowhere to be seen.|
Is there some update on this? OR a way to still get it? Setting your store to north-america region, I don’t know.

Any help is appreciated, I really wanted to play Suikoden again..

It’s not showing up in the psp vita PSN store for me and when I try to buy it on the sony site, i get an error for adding to cart, anybody else having issues?

earthP89 said:

December 9th, 12:23 pm

Yeah Im having the same problem. They just took it off the store a couple minutes ago.

orbownz said:

December 9th, 12:24 pm

Interesting. Has anybody gotten the game up and running on any of the PS platforms?

Lukimel said:

December 9th, 12:38 pm

Been checking all day and still have yet to see it. Anyone know roughly how big the download will be?

orbownz said:

December 9th, 12:52 pm

No idea. Still nothing for me.

orbownz said:

December 9th, 12:53 pm

You can no longer add it to your cart on the online store.

Lukimel said:

December 9th, 12:55 pm

I read a report that the wrong price was put up.

orbownz said:

December 9th, 1:00 pm

Link?

earthP89 said:

December 9th, 1:05 pm

damn that sucks. I can’t wait to play it.

orbownz said:

December 9th, 1:14 pm

Same here.

RedFaceGeneral said:

December 9th, 6:21 pm

I’m extremely disappointed to find out that this game is not being supported on PSTV…

orbownz said:

December 9th, 8:23 pm

Tried buying suikoden II on the ps3, vita and the online sony site. ps3 and website give errors, and it’s not even on the store on the vita.

orbownz said:

December 9th, 8:25 pm

Also bought suikoden on ps3, says it works on vita when you buy it, when you try to install on vita, says cannot install on this device. this is a mess.

Melsir99 said:

December 10th, 7:11 am

Please make it compatible with the PS TV!!!

orbownz said:

December 10th, 12:52 pm

It’s on the psn store for vita, but no price and no way to download.

December 13th, 3:38 pm

I’m one of the fools who bought suikoden 2 thinking I can play on psp. I’m pissed and it was told that it was “ps vita psp ps3” and nothing! So far I’ve wasted 10$ And for the dude who asked for BoF3, its already on psp, I own it, although its a EU version. But plays perfectly fine. Anyone have any word on WHEN Suikoden 2 will be aviable for download for psp??? Please email if possible! (lilpoetboy@yahoo.com), I feel cheated and hurt. And I don’t want to have to buy a Vita just to play this :(

Very unhappy that the PSP flag was turned off for this game when it was taken down from the store briefly. Those who managed to download it fast enough report it runs perfectly fine on the system.

I really, really wanted to get this game and finally get to play it. It shows up so often on “Best of” lists for RPGs :(

Please speak to Sony Konami, they’ll listen to you. Unfortunately they won’t listen to us.

What is the reason behind not letting us load this on PSP? From other comments, it sounds like it was listed as available for PSP when it first went up. Konami’s web site is still listing it as PS3, PSVita, and PSP. Is there any precedent for this? Every other PSOne Classic I’ve bought works on PSP.
