News: Eiyuden Chronicle Has Become the Third-Most Successful Video Game Kickstarter

Recommended Posts

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the spiritual successor to Suikoden, has become the third-most successful Kickstarter video game with a final total of over $4.5 million raised. Eiyuden Chronicle trails only behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's $5.5 million and Shenmue 3's $6.3 million as the most successful video game Kickstarter, flying past its original goal of $500,000. Key members of the development team responsible for the cult classic RPG series Suikoden will be working on Eiyuden Chronicle, and it will take the form of a JRPG with a 2.5D visual style. Furthermore, it will have over 100 heroes to recruit, a 'fortress building system,' and a turn-based battle system with parties of six characters. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/07/24/eiyuden-chronicle-hundred-heroes-gameplay-teaser"] The story of Eiyuden Chronicle will be written by Suikoden series creator and Suikoden 1 and 2 writer Yoshitaka Murayama, and other ex-Suikoden team members will handle the character design, system design, and direction. Since this Kickstarter surpassed its goal in a major way, many of the stretch goals were met, including PS5, Xbox Series X, and Switch versions, and a companion game that was the $4.5 million goal. For those who aren't familiar with the Suikoden series, which began in 1995 on the original PlayStation, be sure to read our take on why Suikoden 2 is the best game you've never played.
