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. The third entry takes place within the Grasslands around 16 years after its predecessor, during an uneasy peace between the six clans that rule the area and the eastern nation of Harmonia. While some things have been carried over from the first two titles, such as the recruitable 108 Stars of Destiny that are scattered throughout the lands, others have changed quite a bit, namely that the story is now told through three different characters. Each character represents a different side, allowing players to see events from the perspective of a Grasslander as Karaya clan member Hugo, Harmonian as border guard Geddoe, and Zexen as knight Chris Lightfellow.
