We have some new character art and screenshots for you to enjoy. Some of them are from a live game showing, so you'll have have excuse the quality; but it IS Suikoden IV media, so we hope that gives us some leeway.

    This game is starting to shape up pretty good. I have seen the video the pics were taken from and it looks as though Konami has listened to some of the feedback from part 3. They even give you a proper 3rd person view!
    My question is, why the heck did they go back and use the character artist from the first suikoden? It was just fine the way it was.

    first of all they look like they where photographed in front of a screen door...oh well you warned us...

    *edit* I forgot to add my second point...hehehe

    Is it just me or does Jeane look like an older version of Maru from The Legend of Dragoon?

    *tortures himself with visions of a game he'll never play* seriously it's looking sweet and all but we're never going to see a PAL version of this. I lost a lot of respect for Konami when S3 was cancelled so I am trying not to get to excited this time round sad.gif

    Looks good! And thank the Goddess there are CATS smile.gif

    CATS>>>>>>>>squirrels!

    I also like the camera angles this time(from what I saw). One thing that scares me is the look of the dungeons, will they be the same "straight line" linear dungeons from Suikoden III? I hope not.

    But on the other hand, THERE'S CATS!

    I've looked in to modding my PS2 but I have yet to find anywhere local to me that will do it It's classed as taboo over here, I know there are DIY kits but I haven't the first Idea about soldering and I'm told the no solder ones are a load of rubbish. I really can't see the point in investing in a second PS2 for just one or two games and having just bought an Xbox & KOTOR I'm not flush with the cash at the moment I don't think there is a PAL/NTSC Boot disk for the PS2 but if anyone knows any better let me know it could be that it will redeem my faith smile.gif

    Now wait a minute, what's wrong with the char artist from the origional, those character looked great and plus it may mean that this is going to be a little more like the firstr and second suikoden's. SIII wasn't bad but I enjoyed SI & II more

    Oh dear...what happened to the artist of Suikoden III? I loved that art, it was so pretty and detailed. Oh well~. *Ahem* Anyway, to answer your question Meo Twister, yes, it does look like Viki and Jeanne are in the game. Even though there are question marks for Viki's name, she is sneezing, so it gives it all away. ?wink.gif
    ?The game looks really interesting. Even though the screenshots aren't that clear, I have a basic idea what it looks like, and I do like the in-game graphics.

    Whats everyones problem with the Original Artist? I thought it was pretty good it just didnt have as much of an Anime feel as 2 and 3.

    Well I for one am not complaining about the artist. I'm sure I will love it, however it turns out. =)

    I liked the art for Suikoden 2 best, I think. Many of the pictures had a painted feel, which I thought was a little more distinctive than the straight-anime feel of SIII. Er but maybe I'm just thinking of the intros? smile.gif

    I wonder if both Viki's are going to appear again, or if it will only be the adult-looking one that act likes a kid again. Oh well, it doesn't matter. Just glad that they are keeping one of my favorite mages.

    I sure hope that they finally explain why Jeanne is apparently immortal.

    And I also hope that Pesmerga returns after his notable absence from Suikoden 3.

    Hmmm, it's not that I have a problem with the artist of Suikoden I...it's just that I love the artwork for GenSuiIII because it's very detailed & such. (I also love the artwork for the Suikogaidens too) Actually, this artwork for Suikoden 4 looks more anime than anything. Suikoden II and III artwork looked like manga illustrations. Suikoden 4 art reminds me of illustrations that are done for animations series for some reason. *Shrugs*
