    "Konami is wasting no time in bringing us grateful westerners Genso Suikoden Tierkreis. Siliconera's Spencer was informed by a representative of Konami's North American arm that localization was already underway, and that the U.S. would see the difficult-to-pronounce RPG in "early 2009,? which Spencer took to mean Q1 2009. We should have all wrapped up Chrono Trigger by then, right?

    What we probably won't get are the incredibly expensive two special editions of the game, which will be available from Konami's Japanese online store. For ¥10,550 ($104), the Konami Style special edition (as seen here) will include the game, an artbook, the original soundtrack, a book cover, a bookmark, and a drama CD. The second bundle will throw in all of that and Genso Suikoden Volume 1 and Volume 2 drama CDs, a 2009 calendar, and a set of four cards, and will set you back ¥19,200 ($190!). Two for the fans, we think."

    Why someone would pay that much for a game is lost on me. Anyways, I'm glad that this is getting a port Suikoden games are always fun.

    Now we just need a good translation of Water Margin [​IMG].

    Damn spelling errors.

    Localization was pretty much confirmed (if indirectly so) months ago when the first videos appeared on IGN in English. But it's always nice to have official confirmation! [​IMG]

    I really hope this game is as good as the others in its series. Does anyone know where in the timeline this game takes place in? We really need one that takes place after 3.

    Never heard of...Tierkreis or whatever. Only really played Suiko2, but what the hell, I'm willing to give any game a try, I guess.
