Could Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes be the Suikoden spiritual successor?!
Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is killing it in Kickstarter right now. The JRPG hit over a million and a half dollars in pledges just hours after it went live.
The game is spearheaded by none other than the father of the Suikoden Series, Yoshitaka Murayama along with another prominent figure, Junko Kawano. This is the first collaboration of the two esteemed developers in over 25 years. As such, Eiyuden Chronicles is being touted as the spiritual successor of Suikoden. Even more so as the game features a six-party turn-based combat system, reminiscent of past Suikoden titles.
Throughout the game, players can recruit over 100 characters, each with their own backstory. We’re also getting some pretty nifty features such as a Fortress Town. The town starts small but can be rebuilt and upgraded as the game progresses. This Fortress not only serves as a base of operations but also a home for the characters.
Incidentally, if you get tired of your military exploits, you can create specialty products and trade around the world. Since you can build structures such as blacksmiths, souvenir shops, and the like. If that’s not enough, you can start a food empire by growing your Cafeteria. Expand your brand to other towns and even have cook-offs with rival restaurants.
The Kickstarter still has 31 days to go despite already reaching almost three times its pledge goal of $509,639. As of writing the game has amassed $1,435,585. The project promised to release it on PC at the minimum goal with other platforms to be featured at stretch goals. If you wish to see more or even back the game head on over here. By the way, the estimated release date is on October 2022.
