The first RPG I have ever played on the PlayStation console was Suikoden by Konami. After migrating from 16-bit to 32-bit, it wasn’t that hard to look for a fix for those who have finished Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger multiple times.
And really, Suikoden (especially its sequel) was a real gem and a game way beyond its time. I would go back another play-through just to complete the 108 stars of destiny, which was a huge majority of the fun. That’s why more than 20 years after the game’s original release, I would not be surprised if the game still resonates with a lot gamers both old and new.
Now from the looks of it, a very passionate group of fans both local and international want to keep the fire burning and make this into an event. At a recent post from both SuiCon Philippines and SuiCon Inernational over at Facebook, they are inviting people from all walks of life to participate in the very first Suikoden-themed event in the PH happening this November. Take a look at their recent post below:
“A call to arms, SoDs from around the world!

The event is definitely open for everyone who wants to participate, so even if its the first time you’ve even heard of the game, you might want to check it out because who knows? You just might be the missing piece to complete the 108 stars of destiny!*
*(I would not want to think that the event is limited to just 108, though).
