Friend 2: Awesome! I just bought Suikoden 4! Let's try it out!
Random guy: Don't touch it! ::Grabs game and throws it. Game explodes::
Narrator: In retrospect, Konami should have never put a women in charge. The End.
It takes place 150 years before the events of the gate rune war (suikoden 1). Most of the game is also said to take place on the seas.
The hero of the story does not have a name, so the players are given the option to give him a name.
Characters such as Jeane and Vikki will be back. Also, people are very appeased to see Ted from suikoden 1 back.
