Suikoden spiritual successor Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has been on a tear since its Kickstarter campaign launched. It’s recently crossed over $3 million in crowd-funding and there’s still 12 days left. The initial funding goal was $509,713 but that was achieved in a matter of hours.
In terms of stretch goals, Hot Springs, a monster raising minigame called “Catch ‘Em All” and Iris joining the roster have all been unlocked. For those unfamiliar with the title, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is a new RPG from Suikoden veterans Yoshitaka Murayama and Junko Kawano. There are battles where six characters can be fielded, graphics that combine 2D sprites with 3D backgrounds and 100 different characters to recruit.
Other features include The Fortress Town, a base that can be upgraded to unlock weapon crafting, granaries and whatnot along with New Game Plus, a fishing minigame, Guild System and more. Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is currently slated to release for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC in Fall 2022. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
