Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes’ announcement and insanely successful Kickstarter in 2020 was an absolute treat for Suikoden fans, with former devs of Konami’s beloved series coming together to create a spiritual successor to fill the void left behind in its absence. Last year, publisher 505 Games and developer Rabbit and Bear Studio announced that ahead of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes‘ release, they would also launch a full-fledged prequel with Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising– and now we know exactly when that’s coming.
It’s been announced that Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is launching on May 10. The 2.D action RPG will feature a unique combat system, gorgeous visuals, a town-building system, and much more, with promises of content that will also cross over into Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heores when it launches next year, including equipment, trade goods, cosmetics, and more.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG). The game will also launch for Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass day one.
