Konami has unveiled Suikoden I & II HD Remaster Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars, a remaster of the first two classic Suikoden JRPGs, and the two will be released as one pack sometime next year on consoles and PC.
More specifically, these two remasters will be packaged in the same collection and this remastered duo will be out in 2023 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC (via Steam). The first Suikoden was released in 1995 and its sequel, Suikoden II, was released in 1998. Check out what the remastered versions of these classic games look like in the announcement trailer below:
