Konami䀙s strategic fantasy series, which began on the original PlayStation in 1995, marks its tenth anniversary with an all-new adventure on an unfamiliar continent in Suikoden V. The once-peaceful land of Falena has been stricken with civil strife and uncertainty. To put an end to the unrest, the ruling queen has turned to the power of the kingdom䀙s Sun Rune, an act that involves more than she bargained for. Players assume the role of Falena䀙s prince, who agrees to investigate the mysterious aura of the Sun Rune and uncover its true nature. Thus begins a quest that involves forming a six-character party from a pool of more than 60 playable heroes and engaging in epic battles against a wide assortment of armies and creatures.
While in battle, the party will be able to use over 20 formations to exploit enemy weaknesses. Characters will also acquire new skills, weapon upgrades, and ability-enhancing equipment as the game progresses. A secondary objective is to find the 108 Stars of Destiny, heroes scattered throughout the world, to help create a home base of operations. Konami estimates Suikoden V to be its largest game in the series to date, with real-time battles involving hundreds of troops, cinematic cut-scenes complete with spoken dialogue, multiple endings, surprising plot developments, and a branching storyline. Players will visit bustling towns, delve into dungeons, and explore the serene 3D world from an angled overhead perspective. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
