Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Released by 505 Games and Rabbit & Bear Studios Following Successful 2020 Kickstarter

After being initially crowdfunded via Kickstarter back in 2020, raising ¥481,621,841 during its initial campaign, 505 Games and developer Rabbit & Bear Studios have released Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes onto PC and consoles.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes was developed by notable game creators Junko Kawano and Yoshitaka Murayama, both known for their work on the Suikoden series. The game is distinguished by a six-character battle system, combining 2D sprites and 3D backgrounds. It sets out to offer players a narrative-driven experience with over 100 playable characters (as per the game’s title) and presents a contemporary interpretation of traditional JRPG mechanics.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is now available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam, Epic Game Store, and GOG.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is a fitting and triumphant legacy to Murayama-san’s memory, and we are incredibly proud to launch it today for all the world to enjoy. Thank you to every backer and fan for helping us bring this incredible game to life.

The Story of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes

Our story begins in one corner of Allraan, a tapestry of nations with diverse cultures and values. By dint of sword, and by way of magical objects known as “rune-lenses,” the land’s history has been shaped by the alliances and aggressions of the humans, beastmen, elves, and desert people who live there.

The Galdean Empire has edged out other nations and discovered a technology that amplifies the rune-lenses’ magic. Now, the Empire is scouring the continent for an artifact that will expand their power even further. It is on one such expedition that Seign Kesling, a young and gifted imperial officer, and Nowa, a boy from a remote village, meet each other and become friends. And in a great forest, a young woman named Marisa stands watch over ancient ruins from the runic age…

A twist of fate will soon drag all three of them into the fires of war and force them to reexamine everything they believe to be right and true.

Promoted Features of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes

THE HEROES – Recruit over 100 heroes whose histories and deeds propel the story forward.

BRAND NEW HIGH-QUALITY JRPG – Explore a vivid JPRG world where 2D pixel character animation and 3DCG blend seamlessly together.

EXTENSIVE CHARACTER ABILITIES AND UNIQUE BATTLE SYSTEM:

Fight thrilling and immersive turn-based battles that factor in the verticality and obstacles of dungeons when determining character and enemy placement. Take powerful bosses down a peg by caving in the ceiling or blasting them with devastating weapons.

Assemble your party from a range of fighters with diverse personal skills. Use their unique defensive commands to protect allies in the same row, counter incoming attacks, provoke foes, or charge up for your next strike. Bolster attacks using “Cover Fire” and “Smith,” raise morale with “Cheer”—you can even have a “Soak” in the hot springs before doing battle. Noncombatant characters have your back too, with support skills that will give you an edge

Flex your strategic muscles in War Battles that pit commander against commander. Take control of legions of soldiers in dynamic, RTS-like scenarios where siege engines and other weapons of war could turn the tides.

Confront foes in dramatic, one-on-one Duels that are woven seamlessly into the story.

Customize party members with rune-lenses. The runes you place in the lenses will confer magic, personal abilities, stat boots, auto-skills, and other useful effects.

TOWNBUILDING SYSTEM – expand your home base and create a thriving community for your heroes. Send your hundred-plus roster to gather resources, conduct trade, and construct new facilities that will increase your town’s size, capabilities, and population. Heroes who choose not to do battle will still contribute to the town and to the war in valuable ways.
