Games | Suikoden Series Index | Konami's answer to Square's Final Fantasy, Enix's Dragon Quest, and Capcom's Breath of Fire, the Suikoden RPG series stands out for its single connected world and abundance of playable characters.
Suikoden? | PlayStation | 1996
Apparently originally intended as a stand-alone game, this series starter now holds a place mainly of nostalgia, having been outstripped by later entries in the areas of plot, characterization, and gameplay.
Side-stories and Spin-offs
Suikogaiden? | PlayStation | 1999-2001 (JP)
A Japan-only release in two volumes, these adventure games with still pictures follow the adventures of Harmonian Nash Latkje (who also appears in Suikoden III) as well as featuring many characters from Suikoden II.
Suikoden Card Stories? | GameBoy Advance | 2001 (JP)
There was a point in the history of video games where everything apparently needed a card-game spinoff. This one features characters from Suikoden II.
Suikoden Tierkreis | Nintendo DS | 2009
The first handheld RPG and first game in the series not to take place in the same world, Tierkreis tries to cram the full Suikoden experience onto the tiny screen, with both successes and failures.
