Suikoden II Finally Coming To PSN?


Kotaku has picked up on Suikoden II being rated by the ESRB. While not an official announcement yet, this often comes before a PS One classic is to be released on the Playstation Network.

This would be fantastic news indeed. Suikoden II is easily one of the greatest RPGs of all time, but in addition to being critically acclaimed and very popular, it’s also incredibly rare, meaning that if you want to get your hands on it, you have to have a PlayStation One, and new sealed copies go for as much as a Playstation 4. Obviously that’s kind of ridiculous, even if it is one of the greatest games of all time.

The original Suikoden was released ages ago on PSN and still holds up as a pretty solid title, but for whatever reason, the sequel has yet to be released. So I really hope this turns out to be true. I’m a long time Suikoden fan, playing through all the main titles. I enjoyed them all quite a bit, but Suikoden II is easily the high point of the entire series.

Let’s hope it’s also going to be made available for the Vita, as for some reason not every PS One classic can be purchased for the Vita. Suikoden II on the go would probably occupy most if not all of my portable gaming time.  If you enjoy JRPGs on any level, have never experienced Suikoden II and have the chance to play it for a far more reasonable price on PSN, you simply need to play it.

Chime in, GameSided readers! How pumped are you are for this?  Are you getting ready to experience it all over again? Or will this be your first time playing? Are there other games that Sony still needs to release on PSN? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
