A recent magazine feature for Suikoden V has confirmed the reappearance of several characters from earlier games in the series. Joining the previously announced returnee Georg Prime will be Viki, Lorelai, and Killey.
Viki, the Suikoden world's master of teleportation magic, has already appeared in all four of the prior games. Killey, who was introduced in Suikoden II, and Lorelai, who showed up in that game as well as Suikoden, have a history together, though it is clouded in mystery. It is known that both of them are searching for clues regarding the ancient Sindar civilization.
Though Konami has announced that Suikoden V will see a North American release, the company has not said precisely when this will be. Konami has, however, said that the title will see a Japanese release on February 23, 2006.
