Fans of Konami’s JRPG series Suikoden, should definitely keep an eye out for “Summer of Suikoden” starting this July.  It’s a multi-channel collaboration including Avalanche JaredThe Dali PopkaGame DaveKarcamo Gaming and Super Derek.  You can check out the announcement trailer below.  Also, be sure to check out their channels in general.  Lots of great content, especially if you’re into all that tasty retro stuff.

If you’ve never played the games before, half the appeal is recruiting all 108 Stars of Destiny.  Yes, there’s a 108 playable characters.  You don’t have to find them all to beat the game, but it does have an effect on the story.  If you’re a completionist like myself, you’ll be checking every town and talking to everyone to catch ’em all.  It’s been a very long time (20 years) since I played the first Suikoden on PS1, and I’m looking forward to taking a look back at the series with Summer of Suikoden, this July. – NVJ
