Konami began by thanking Suikoden fans across the globe for their ongoing passion and support for the series. Regarding the planned release of Suikoden I & II HD Remaster: Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars, the publisher has decided that despite the very best efforts of its dedicated development staff to release the Remasters in 2023, additional time is needed to ensure the quality performance and gameplay experience that its users deserve.

According to the publisher, the entire Suikoden team is renewing its efforts to bring Suikoden I & II HD Remaster to release as soon as possible. It assured its fans that it will share further release information on its official social media accounts and official homepage as soon as it becomes available.

For the uninitiated, the Suikoden I & II HD Remaster: Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars is an upcoming remastered compilation of the beloved games Suikoden and Suikoden II. Players can look forward to experiencing these titles on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC (Steam), and Xbox One. The HD remaster was officially announced during the Tokyo Game Show 2022 on September 16, 2022. This compilation marks the second time these two titles have been bundled together, with the previous release being Genso Suikoden I & II. However, the previous compilation only featured minor updates and remained exclusive to Japan.

The remaster brings forth several enhancements to enhance the gameplay experience. All character portraits in Suikoden have been freshly drawn by Junko Kawano, adding new artworks to the game. Meanwhile, the portraits in Suikoden II remain the same but have been updated to high definition (HD). Both games feature updated backgrounds with increased details, particularly in Suikoden to better align with Suikoden II’s aesthetic. Additionally, the world maps have been completely redrawn in 3D. Battle backgrounds and spell effects have also been enhanced to provide a visually improved experience. The protagonist, Tir, from Suikoden now has a running animation, which was previously omitted in the earlier compilation that featured diagonal sprites.
