Newfound developer Rabbit & Bear Studios recently launched a Kickstarter campaign on the Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, a most missed spiritual successor in the Suikoden series. The newly found team is made up of a group of veteran Suikoden developers including Yoshitaka Murayama, the master storyteller who wrote up scripts for both Suikoden I and II.
It starts with yet another war
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.
However, a twist of fate will soon drag them into the fires of war, and force them both to reexamine everything they believe to be right and true.
Game feature details as shown in the Kickstarter:
- A brand new, high-quality JRPG from Yoshitaka Murayama (Suikoden I&II) and Junko Kawano (Suikoden I&IV), in their first collaboration in 25 years.
- A traditional 6-character battle system utilizing painstakingly created 2D sprites and gorgeous 3D backgrounds
- A deep story with 100 characters intricately intertwined.
- Coming to PC at minimum goal, with stretch goals to bring the game to additional platforms, including PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.
