Suikoden II is one of the best JRPGs out there and now it?s possible that this spectacular game could finally be coming to the PlayStation Network as the ESRB has just rated Suikoden II for PlayStation 3.
ESRB stands for Entertainment Software Rating Board and their ratings are often the precursor to a re-release on Sony?s digital PlayStation Network where there are a number of classic PS1 and PS2 games that can be played on the PS3, PSP, and the Vita. A good example of this was earlier this month when an ESRB rating for Persona 4 unintentionally revealed that Atlus would be re-releasing their classic PS2 game for PSN.
Suikoden II was released by Konami for the original PlayStation back in 1999. It is the second installment of the Suikoden video game series and is widely considered to be one of the greatest role playing games ever made. The game features a wide array of characters with over 100 usable in combat and many more that are necessary for the plot to move forward.
The game takes place years after the events of the original Suikoden game. It centers on an invasion by the Kingdom of Highland on the City States of Jowston.
Although there are many more sequels after Suikoden II, players still think that the best game out of the whole franchise is Suikoden II. The sequels just don?t quite measure up so fans are very excited for this game to be available.
Konami released the first Suikoden on the PlayStation network a few years ago, but Suikoden II was nowhere to be seen. The game?s rarity has made for some ?pretty insane price spikes on eBay as well as other various sources. Playing Suikoden II legally today can be quite a challenge, even more so if you are in the EU continent. This is the reason why fans have been begging Konami for a re-release for years. With this piece of information, hopefully, that reality isn?t too far off.
Nothing is conclusive as of this time, but the possibility of having this game ?available soon on PSN is very likely as it follows how Persona 4 made its re-release.
