Suikoden earned a special place and was quite popular with fans of the RPG genre and users of the first PlayStation. The Konami franchise was well received in its time, but its success faded after the release of the fifth installment and several spin-offs.
Despite this, his legacy lives on and Yoshitaka Murayama, creator of the franchise, is still part of the industry. The creative is currently working on a spiritual successor to Suikoden called Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.
His project is on the right track, so he recently spoke about it. Murayama took the opportunity to briefly mention Suikoden and reveal that he would like to work with the franchise again.

During an interview with Nintendo Everything, Murayama discussed Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes and the benefits of working independently on your own IP. The creative said that he and his team are currently focused on carrying out their new project.
“Suikoden was a game that I was very lucky to work on. I will always love that series but it is not something I really own or control while Eiyuden can be 100% mine,” said the creator.
