Taking a cue from the Mega Man Legends 3 revival group and Operation Rainfall, an equally dedicated collective of Suikoden fans are using Facebook in an effort to petition Konami to release the original Suikoden and Suikoden II on PSN world-wide.
The strategy of the Suikoden Revival Movement
is a simple one, which is to ask its fellow fans to politely email, tweet, and Facebook message their request for the games to be released in their respective regions.
"We shall be doing a monthly Email/Twitter/Facebook campaign," announced the group. "The first week of every month shall consist of E-Mail Monday, Twitter Tuesday and Facebook Friday. Then we have a rest for the remaining 3 weeks of the month. Soon, we hope to incorporate a Write-In Wednesday and a Phone-in Thursday too."
While the group had a bit of a rough start during the summer months, the number of members has started to pick steam and is now at a healthy 1,929 people.
As long as they keep the campaign respectful, I wish these gamers all the luck in the world and I hope their reasonable request is met.
But I will say that if the demand is met, they must buy the games once they become available in order to properly prove their point. If they don’t, Konami would feel less inclined to meet such demands in the future.
Although from the looks of the fan page, I don’t think a lack of pledges is going to be a problem.
