Released a few months after Suikoden Card Stories, this 367 page hardback book is the definitive guide to the early games in the series. Presented in a simple A to Z manner (or rather, the Japanese equivalent of), the Encyclopaedia covers the people, places, battles, runes, and more of the Suikoden universe. Entries include screenshots and/or illustrations wherever possible, and also note which games in the series (until the date of publishing, which would include Suikoden 1 & 2, Suikogaiden 1 & 2, Card Stories and the light novels) that particular entry appeared in.
 
The back of the book includes an overview of the major forces and kingdoms in the series as well as several timelines and a chart indicating which of the 27 true runes have been present in the games and who they were bound to.
 
An updated version was released through the Konamistyle store in 2012 called 幻想水滸伝極大事典, this added entries for everything up to Suikoden Tierkreis and revised earlier entries where necessary.
