Suikoden fans bombard social media in attempt to bring the series to Steam0 Comments
There's been a lot of hubbub surrounding Konami in the past few months, largely caused by the company's disrespectful treatment of industry legend Hideo Kojima and the seemingly-disrespectful use of the Metal Gear Solid IP in the likes of pachinko machines. It may come as no real surprise that fans of the older works of the development studio are worried that their classic games will be forgotten to time or languish on outdated hardware.
While perhaps not every Konami game is worthy of a PC re-release, the Suikoden games, and particularly the earlier entries, certainly are. That's why users have taken to social media with the #SuikodenOnSteam movement. Spearheaded by a Facebook group named the Suikoden Revival Movement, users are flooding social media channels in an attempt to coerce Konami into releasing the Suikoden games for the tremendously-popular digital distribution service.
While it's certainly a noble cause, many have questioned whether or not Konami even gives a damn about their video game IP anymore. The evidence is certainly not in gamers' favors. And yet, bringing Suikoden games to Steam is not only a great way to spread the excellence that RPG fans have grown to love, it's also a great way to future-proof the titles, at least for the foreseeable future anyway. And that's to say nothing of the fact that it will make money for Konami, which is presumably something they're still interested in, despite their more recent business decisions.
