Description

Suikoden Tactics is a spin-off in the Suikoden series and a direct sequel to Suikoden IV, its story taking place three years after those described in the previous game. The story narrates what happened after the Kooluk and Island Nations war and the mystery concerning the origins of the Rune Cannons. Kyril, the main character, is a powerful young warrior who is continuing his father's fanatical obsession with learning all he can about the Rune Cannons.

Unlike the previous Suikoden games, Suikoden Tactics is a tactical role-playing game. The game consists of large-scale tactical battles and offers no exploration, but retains RPG elements such as character and equipment growth. The gameplay is similar to Fire Emblem. The game offers a combo attack plan by allowing players to build stronger relationships with each fight. If two characters converse during battle, they will improve fighting compatibility with each other. Different upgradeable skills and spells make up the bulk of the gameplay. Story cutscenes are rendered in real-time and have voiceovers.
