UPDATE: It appears as if Suikoden II has had its rating removed from the ESRB website.

Make of this what you will. If you ask me, the fact that it appeared in the first place means it could still be coming, but I could very much be mistaken. I guess time will tell.

Thanks RPGSite.

Suikoden II - ESRB

Well, this is interesting.

Suikoden II has been spotted on the ESRB rating board, with Sony Computer Entertainment America listed as the ones who lodged the rating, as can be seen in the image above.

The listing is for PlayStation 3, which suggests a release on the PlayStation Network may be imminent. I stress my use of the word MAY; this is not a confirmation, but it may be a hint that Sony are considering it, and that it could possibly happen.

Suikoden II released on the PlayStation 1 in Japan and North America in 1999, and shortly after the turn of the millennia in Europe.

So, what do all of you make of this listing? Is it getting a re-release, do you reckon, and if so, will you buy it? Let us know in the comments below!

Suikoden II - Box

Thanks for the heads-up Siliconera.

    Well, I’m one of the few lucky people to have an original copy of it, but I do really hope it comes out on the PSN so others can play it. With the original copies going for hundreds of dollars on eBay, too many people are missing out on a great game.

  • Tara

    This would probably figure, considering I just recently decided to bite the bullet and buy it on eBay for $120. (Which, given how much it typically goes for, I probably got for a steal anyway, who knows?)

    Regardless, I prefer having a physical copy of this anyway, so I don’t really mind so much. But definitely odd that it took them the better part of… how long ago was Suikoden I put on PSN? 6 years ago?

  • Billy Bass

    I have both Suikoden 1 and 2 from their original releases, but I will buy this day 1. I already have the first one on PSN so I haven’t played the actual disc in years. This version would allow me the opportunity to not have to play either disc. So Sony, please bring it ASAP!

    At first I was annoyed by this news, in that it came after I just finished playing the physical copy I bought last year. My first thought is that the value of my physical copy just plummeted.

    However then I remembered 2 things. Earthbound is still going for nearly what it did before it came to the VC. And I never sell my games anyway, so what does it matter. On the good side, I got a complete copy for $85, way below what I normally saw it go for.

    • smacd

      So this is definitely a good thing for everyone who can’t afford the physical price. I probably wont pick up a digital copy, but its such a good game, that I’m glad others will get the chance.

  • Infophile

    On the removal: I agree, it probably is coming. We’ve seen this pattern before. A site accidentally posts about an upcoming game before they’re supposed to, they remove the info, then not long after there’s an official announcement. It doesn’t always go this way, but it’s the direction to bet.

  • Mantiskilla

    Man the game is real good so hopefully they release it to PSN at some point. Granted I’m like other recent posters who have the physical game but there is no way i would spend $100+ for it that’s for sure. I got it for the $50 price tag when it first came out and never got rid of it so I was lucky there I guess
