Suikoden launched for the original PlayStation in 1997 in Europe. Suikoden 2 was released in Europe for PS1 in 2000.

18 years after Suikoden's European debut, both games' re-release comes as part of the PSOne Classics games collection for PlayStation 3. Konami said it it'll announce a date and price.

In Suikoden you play the son of General Teo McDohl. You begin the game guard training in Gregminster. Eventually you must protect the Rune of Life and Death, one of the 27 runes that govern the world, and flee the capital before joining forces with a group of rebels on the hunt to find Stars of Destiny.

Suikoden 2 revolves around an orphan called Hero, his friend Jowy and his orphan sister, Nanami. They gather the 108 Stars of Destiny while the land is ravaged by a war between the Highland Kingdom and the City States.
