Suikoden Tierkreis for the Nintendo DS is one of my most awaited games on my handheld platform of choice (Sorry, Iphone). IGN recently featured what is in store for Wifi and Local Wireless play
More Suikoden Tierkreis Multiplayer details after the jump.
Suikoden fans know that the series boasts a huge amount of playable characters, Konami is expanding on that design with Suikoden for DS. In the latest game, adventurers can expand their gameplay out of the single player realm and into a more user-connected community can do that via “Infinity.” “This story-supported crossroads of sorts is a place where users can drop off their characters in parallel worlds (other DS players), and have them hired for online-specific quests. Once a character is “hired” from one DS to the other, a specific amount of time is given to complete the mission.”
The original owner of the character will have to go without their hero for a short time, continuing on with the main game away from any need of wireless communication, and at the end of the mission (either when successfully finished, or after a specific time limit) the original owner will get their outcome with the character based on the other player’s progression.
… and get the report back when the mission is over.
Not only does this allow users to farm out characters to other players in need of a higher level fighter, or let players try out fighters they may not have in their own game, but it also gains both users unique, Wi-Fi specific items for their efforts, and all the experience and quest items that come with along with it.
