Eiyuden Chronicle: Suikoden Spiritual Succesor Announced

The writer and director of Suikoden & Suikoden II, Yoshikata Murayama has unveiled Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.

The game is billed as a spiritual successor to the Suikoden titles, boasting a turn-based combat style and an unbelievable roster of 100 characters to recruit.

You’ll also be able to build up your pwn fortress, customising it to your liking dependent on which guild you join.

Rabbit & Bear Studio

Eiyuden Chronicle is being developed by an independent studio in Tokyo, Rabbit & Bear.

Several images have been shared showing off the beautiful 2.5D art style, though Rabbit & Bear have stated they hope to improve the graphical fidelity of the game before release.

Murayama is working on the project alongside Suikoden veterans Junko Kawano and Osamu Komuta, as well as Junichi Murakami who worked on Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow.

Tales series composer Motoi Sakuraba and Wild Arms composer Michiko Naruke are also involved with Eiyuden Chronicle.

Hitting Kickstarter Soon

Eiyuden Chronicle will be live on Kickstarter starting 27th July, running until 28th August with an initial goal of $500,000 to fund the games development.

“We chose Kickstarter in order to make an interesting game with the players in mind, hold the rights to the planning, world, and story of the game, all while keeping the fun of the project,”

Speaking about the reason to develop via Kickstarter, Murayama said

Stretch goals will be added to help push a release on consoles, with a release date currently penciled in for Autumn 2022.
