Classic PSOne RPG "Suikoden II" Will Be Available on PSN This Week

Konami's 1999 game finally arrives on PlayStation 3

Remember back in April when an ESRB listing briefly popped up for Suikoden II? The PSOne RPG's journey to PlayStation Network was finally confirmed during this past weekend's PlayStation Experience event, and it's set to arrive in North America on December 9.

 

The PSOne Classic download will run you $9.99. Here's more from Konami's press release:

 

Suikoden II is the second installment in the Suikoden series. Originally released in North America in 1999, the RPG featured a rich plotline with a large cast of characters. The combat consists of up to six in a single party, and features a dynamic battle style where multiple team members or enemies can attack simultaneously. The game also offers players a unique magic rune and skills system that encourages players to perform combat moves with strategy in mind.

 

The story centers on an orphan Hero with friend Jowy and his orphan sister, Nanami. These three are found in the middle of a war between the Highland Kingdom and the City States. The team embarks on a journey that questions their preconceptions of life, society and war as they gather the 108 stars of destiny (characters), who will help them on their quest. With potentially life-and-death decisions that need to be made by the user, the game’s story takes twists and turns and develops based on the decisions made.
