Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Pushed to 2024
505 Games and Rabbit & Bear Studios announced that the release of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has been pushed back. Planned to release later this year, the spiritual successor to the Suikoden series will now launch for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch in Q2 2024. In its announcement, the development team released some new in-development footage from the game, as well as announcing some more Japanese cast members.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is being developed by a team led by Suikoden series creator Yoshitaka Murayama. It is set in the world of Allraan, with its history shaped by magical items called rune-lenses. The Galdean Empire has emerged as the dominant power thanks to finding a technology that amplifies the rune-lenses, and it is now looking for an artefact that will enhance its power further. The game will feature HD 2.5D graphics with sprite-based characters, 100 unique heroes to join the protagonist, and turn-based battles with six-member parties. More details about the game can be found in RPGamer’s 2020 announcement article and interview with Rabbit & Bear Studios.
