After hosting a record kickstarter for his latest game, the creators of Suikoden say he’s open to returning to the series in which he made his name. But for the time being, RPG game veterans are working on everything in front of him.
Yoshitaka Murayama, director of the first three fantasy Suikoden games, talked to Nintendo Everything and became a classic IP only after his current project, the Eiyuden Chronicle, was first shipped and cared for. He said he would be happy to take the opportunity to return. “Fantasy Suikoden was a game I was very lucky to work on. I always love the series, it’s not something I own or control, but Ailleden is 100% my It can be a thing, “he explained. “That said, I hope I can work on another Suikoden match, of course, when I have a chance in the future. But for now, I want to focus on the Eiyuden Chronicle as the next chapter in my life. I think.”

Murayama led the development of it and the first two sequels before parting with Konami in the early Naughty. Last year, he and a team featuring the talents of the entire Suikoden series unveiled their spiritual successor, Ailleden Chronicles: Hand Red Heroes and their new studio, Rabbit & Bear. Anime games have become one of the most successful video game Kickstarter campaigns to date.
