Players need to delve deep into their squadmates’ minds in order to find out if they’re loyal or ready to turn.

Suikoden 3 (PS3, PSN) PSN Launch Announcement - Screenshot 1

Following their release of Suikoden II late last year, Konami has added Suikoden III to PSN as part of the PS2 Classic line.
