Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is a highly-anticipated RPG labeled as the “spiritual successor” to the famous Suikoden series. Gamers have been so impressed with what the game has to offer that its Kickstarter campaign has garnered more than $4.5 million!
With that in mind, Eiyuden Chronicle is now the third-biggest video game Kickstarter project. Rabbit & Bear Studios’ initial goal was only around $500,000. However, since the campaign was able to surpass that amount drastically, the developers decided to add other stretch goals which they were able to reach completion.
These stretch goals included the following:
- Hero Mode – Plumb the depths of special randomized dungeons with your chosen party and take on unique challenges not found elsewhere in Allraan. Plan your team wisely, as certain members will be stronger against specific foes. Be careful though, because your party members will tire over time, making fights harder as you explore deeper into the unknown!
- Asynchronous Mode – At this stretch goal, you will be able to share your party and fortress town as AI-controlled data with other players, allowing them to battle your army without you even being online.
- Fortress Town Asset Pack – This set of visual assets will allow you to customize your fortress in the style of a Japanese or Chinese castle, setting you apart from the rest! This is the third piece of FREE Digital DLC for backers.
- Battle Defense Mode – At this stretch goal, invaders will periodically attack your Fortress Town as the story progresses. Build a Citadel to strengthen your walls, train defensive troops and develop weapons to protect your citizenry from those that would ransack your home.
- Another Story: Seign – In this DLC side story, you will take control of Seign in an adventure told from the empire’s point of view.
Not only that, but because of the amazing support and funding, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes will have Brazilian, Korean, Russian, and Portuguese localization.
Much like Suikoden, Eiyuden Chronicle will feature a cast of characters – over 100 to be precise. Also, it’s worth noting that Yoshitaka Murayama and Junko Kawano will be reunited in this game, both of whom played huge roles in the development of Suikoden.
The game will feature your average turn-based combat as well as a fortress town you are tasked to rebuild. The game has so many features that it’s hard to list down everything, but what do you expect? That’s what happens when you reach all your stretch goals.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is planned to be released on multiple gaming platforms such as the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
