Developer Rabbit and Bears Studios and publisher 505 Games showcased new visuals from their upcoming game Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes exclusively on the IGN Live Show at this year's Gamescom. From the creator of the classic JRPG series Suikoden , it features over 100 characters, a unique combat system and the look and feel of classic JRPGs. JPGames.de even dubbed it the “Gamescom 2022 game”.
In 2020, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes was successfully supported by the community on Kickstarter. This made it the most funded video game on Kickstarter in 2020. In addition to developing the game, another 40 additional goals have also been achieved for the Suikoden spiritual successor. These include, for example, a DLC from the point of view of the empire and a town creation RPG as an additional game, but which is developed externally by Natsume Atari.
505 Games and Rabbit & Bear are committed to creating an unforgettable gaming experience for fans. Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes pays homage to the classic JRPG from the PlayStation era and will be released in high-resolution 2.5D graphics with pixel-based characters. They want to provide over 100 playable characters that lead through a war-torn world and that can only be saved by you.
There is no exact release date yet. Only 2023 has been announced as a rough time frame so far.
More information about the game should not be long in coming. More information will be revealed at this year's Tokyo Game Show. The Tokyo Game Show will take place from September 15th to 18th, 2022.
This is what Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is about:
The story takes place in a land shaped by the use of swords and magical objects called "rune lenses", causing squabbles among local humans, beastmen, elves and desert dwellers. In the process, the Galdean Empire has left other nations behind and discovered a technology that enhances the magic of rune lenses. The Empire searches across the continent for an artifact that will increase its power even further.
The young Empire officer Seign Kesling and Nowa, who comes from a remote village, meet on one of these expeditions. A friendship develops between the two. However, fate soon embroils them in a cruel war in which the two friends have to put everything they believe in and what they think is right to the test.
