Late last week, Konami registered the title Genso Suikoden
with the United States Patent and Trademark office. While no further details are available, the filing may be one of many different possibilities: a new game in the series (known simply as Suikoden
in North America), a remake of the original Suikoden
or a US release of the poor-selling
Japan-only PSP compilation, which included slightly enhanced versions of Suikoden I & II
The nearly 15 year old series has been getting quite a push from Konami in recent months. In late 2008, Konami released the original PlayStation version of Suikoden
on the PlayStation Network, while the Nintendo DS received the latest game in the series -- Suikoden Tierkreis
-- in March.
