Here’s A Fresh Look Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes
Earlier this year we got a playable prequel in Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, which will lead players into Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the spiritual successor to Suikoden.
Over the last few years, Rabbit and Bear Studios has been hard at work after Kickstarting the project and receiving a whopping 4.5 million in funding to create Hundred Heroes. The trailer which debuted at Gamescom features protagonist Nowa and also Seign Kesling as we get a glimpse of the environments players will explore and everything we’ve seen so far looks incredible.
I can’t stress how much I love the graphical style Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is working with. Sure, it isn’t the 2D-HD fans have fallen in love with as seen in Live A Live and what the trailer shows of the battle scenes continue to impress. I’m looking forward to seeing how the large party will play into the battle system.
At the moment, there are no release date plans that we know of so I wouldn’t expect to see the game this year. It’s not like we’re hurting for video games in 2022 so a release in 2023 is more than welcome and I look forward to hearing more from the developers. Tokyo Game Show is set for September so I wager we’ll hear more soon.
