Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH confirms European release for eagerly awaited role-playing epic
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has confirmed that the fifth title in the popular Suikoden line of role-playing titles will be released in September.
Suikoden V marks the tenth anniversary of the popular role-playing series, and is a celebration of all that is good about the series, and adds a wealth of new ideas to the epic franchise. As such, Suikoden V takes the player to never-before-seen continents within the game world, on a quest to trace and collect a magical rune needed to restore balance in the troubled world.
Featuring unparalleled depth of gameplay, Suikoden V thrusts the players into a time of unrest. Cast as an unlikely hero, players are charged with traveling the lands of Farlena in search of a mythical Sun Rune. To do so, players trek across the lush 3D environments, recruiting from the many characters they meet on the way, cherry-picking allies with unique skills from an incredible cast list that allows for up to 108 followers! With the pawns in place, the player then oversees a final battle to bring back peace to the land. However, dependent on how the player fares in the time he has, Suikoden V also has a number of possible and surprise endings…
New additions to Suikoden V include more interaction with the 3D landscapes, while battle parties of up to six characters can engage in skirmishes simultaneously. The fight sequences are also further enhanced with the advent of over 20 different combat formations, allowing users to select tactics ideal for their current situation. Players also oversee epic battles between rival factions, giving orders to hundreds of troops as they battle for control of Falena. The game also includes all new mini-games used to obtain essential funds, while the ‘Home Base’ system lets users gather together their many allies to combine their individual attributes and enlarge their home land.About KONAMI CORPORATION
