The Last Suikoden Game Has Apparently Received a Full Translation

Suikoden: Woven Web of the Centuries was released in Japan in 2012 for the PlayStation Portable and is the 14th game in the Suikoden series. It never received an English translation until now, apparently. It's the last game released in a series that ran from 1995 to 2012, with Woven Web of the Centuries receiving decent scores from contemporary Japanese reviewers.

Suikoden is a series that's languished in recent years, with players attempting a #SuikodenOnSteam campaign (to bring the series on Steam) that failed to work. While Suikoden 2 was released as a PS Classic for PlayStation 3, Vita, and PSP, it's not available these days either. For fans of Suikoden, the only real ray of hope is its spiritual successor Eiyuden Chronicle, which should be coming sometime in 2023.

As for the English translation for Suikoden: Woven Web of the Centuries, check out the explanatory blurb below:

In March 2021, German fan translation group Twisted Phoenix Game Translation led a team of Japanese-to-English translators and editors and the result is this: Suikoden: Woven Web of the Centuries, available for you to play, 100% in English, for the very first time.

The website is here if you'd like to take a look, and it does look convincing. It includes instructions on how to play the translation, and it's fully available to download at 602.8 MB.

 
 

How do I play Suikoden: Woven Web of the Centuries?

First you must acquire an .ISO file of the game that's 1.27 GB in total. You can get the game itself off of eBay for a decently low price, but this might not last too long so you might want to move swiftly and secure your copy of the game. 

If the ISO file is opened in 7-Zip, the CRC should be D746B3AB. If it is, you can proceed to the second step, which asks players to open the Suikoden: Woven Web of the Centuries Fan Translation zip file and use the patcher program found inside to patch it over the ISO file. Once done, your game is ready to be played on an emulator or a hacked PSP or PS Vita.
