One of the few topics that has receiving a lot attention as of late involved an upcoming JRPG funded on kickstarter entitled Eiyuden Chronicles: Hundred Heroes. Based on what we know the Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is supposed to be a spiritual successor of the older 2.5 dimensional Suikoden titles from the 90’s. The high definition 2.5D graphics & visuals for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes are breathtaking and looks similar to that of Octopath Traveler from 2018. The Kickstarter campaign Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes started back on July 27th and the developers reportedly reached their goal in raising a total of $500,000 within three hours. In fact, Rabbit & Bear Studios has confirmed that the Kickstarter Campaign for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has managed to generate at least $4.5 million in funding since its launch back in late July 2020. For those who do not know Rabbit & Bear Studios consists of former Suikoden designer Junko Kawano and the scenario writer for the first two games in the series Yoshitaka Murayama.
One of the main goals that Rabbit & Bear Studios has is to get Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred one multiple game systems including PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. If Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes does make to various game systems following its development it’s unclear when the game itself is going to be released. Many people are hoping that Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is released sometime in 2021; while others believe that the game might not appear until 2022 which seems more accurate. Either way, Eiyuden Chronicles looks like a promising JRPG with a compelling story focused on war with a cast of 100 different heroes featured within the game. There has been no word on whether or not the developers plan on bringing Eiyuden Chronicles to the Switch console. A game like Eiyuden Chronicles: Hundred Heroes would stand out far more on a Nintendo based game console; especially considering the fact that its more of a retro themed pixel art type of video game.
