Suikoden I & II HD Remaster: Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars (we're gonna need a shorthand for this one) was announced last week, much to the delight of fans. The first two entries in Konami's beloved RPG series are being brought back on PS4 with quality-of-life features like fast-forwarding battles, as well as enhanced graphics and effects.
Speaking of, the official Twitter account posted a comparison, showing the same scene in both the original and the remaster, and it's looking like an amazing result:
As you can see, the remaster not only presents the game in 16:9 widescreen, it also significantly improves the visuals. The right-hand image makes the original title look incredibly flat in comparison, even if the light bloom may be a touch on the strong side.
The remaster collection is due for release sometime next year, and it looks like we'll be in for a retro treat. Are you looking forward to Suikoden I & II HD Remas... Are you looking forward to this? Let us know in the comments section below.
I've never played a Suikoden game but I'm super intrigued. I will most likely get the remaster. Getting it right now on Vita is tempting too though.
I know some people are up in arms with the "You have ruined the games with the awful new look!" etc. But I personally think it looks amazing. Actually feels like Konami is putting some serious effort into it. Can't wait to replay them!

Never been interested in these type of games tbh but I'm sure fans will enjoy it
This looks incredible.
It's Konami though. There's going.to be a nasty surprise somewhere isn't there?
It’s the same issue I have with all the HD-2D games and pixel remasters from square. The environments look good enough, but they overuse lighting effects and the non-updated sprites look so out of place compared to the polished up environments.
Wow. That does look vastly improved! Here's hoping the final product holds up.
N.i.c.e. i will be getting this.suikoden remaster looks cool.word up son
I’ve been dreaming of remasters for these games and Xenogears for so long. This is definitely a day one purchase for me. Gives me hope maybe Xenogears could actually happen some day.
It looks good,but this treatment is being given to key story moments. I wonder if the rest of the game will see the same treatment.
I might replay Suiko2 with this. Suiko1 i was never crazy about.
Hope they include the feature to tranfer saves between the games
Looks lush, although that left hand shot isn't from 1995 as it's Suikoden II pretty poor showing from a Twitter account calling itself "@ Suikoden" pre-order cancelled gee I really hope someone got fired for that blunder etc etc
This looks amazing, I can't wait to dive back into these after (gulp) nearly thirty years.
Really wish Capcom did this with Breath of Fire III and IV. Need to see something else apart from Resident Evil and Street Fighter been released
it looks nice ( I had the original) but why ps4 and not ps5? I had to draw a line in the sand to limit my collecting and I wont be buying any more ps4 games..
@VatoLoco47 breath of fire 3 is great!
I love how it looks and i've been wanting to play them for a while but now i'll just wait for this remaster
Any word if they’ll fix the translation? Suikoden II had a great many blaring errors, as I recall.
@Deoxyr1bose This is exactly what jumped out at me! The hi-def environment makes the pixelated character models look even more blocky, and the fact they’re untouched by any of the fancy lighting gives them the look of stickers in a kids book.
@yeayeanaynay But Breath of Fire 4 is King. 😁
@Deoxyr1bose @Andywax Glad to see I'm not the only one feeling jarred by that.
@KidBoruto It’s a shame because game-wise I’m definitely interested.
@Andywax Yeah agreed 100% on that front.
