Konami Renews Trademark Classic RPG Suikoden

Konami has renewed the trademark of the RPG Suikoden.

The renewed trademark was applied for in July and was recently spotted (via Eurogamer). Nothing is known about the trademark beyond the date of application. Konami previously reported that it was unveiling a new game from “a beloved franchise” at the Tokyo Game Show. According to sources from VGC, it would be a smaller project, and not a new Castlevania, Silent Hill or Metal Gear Solid. So Suidoken may be the game in question, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Suikoden first appeared on the PlayStation in 1995. The Japanese RPG is known for the concept where players recruit 108 characters throughout the story. The last Suikoden, part 5, dates from February 23, 2006. In 2008 and 2012 there were two more spin-offs and since then it has been quiet around the franchise.

In 2021, Suikoden creator Yoshitaka Murayama announced that he was open to a new part in the series. “I was very lucky to be able to work on Suikoden,” says Murayama. “I’ll always love that series, but that’s not something I can’t control. Where I have 100 percent control is Eiyuden. That said, of course I’d love to work on a new Suikoden game if the opportunity presents itself.” occurs,” he said at the time.

Konami’s presentation at the Tokyo Game Show will take place on September 16. On stage, Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links, Super Bomberman R2, and eFootball 2023 will be discussed.
