Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes preview

It always seems to happen the same way: just when I think I’m ready to take a break from playing big, sprawling JRPGs that threatens to suck up every ounce of my free time, along comes a game like Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes that immediately makes me reconsider. After spending the past few years deep in development following an immensely successful Kickstarter campaign in 2020, the turn-based RPG will finally land on Switch next spring and will hopefully help scratch the Suikoden itch that Konami has ignored for over a decade. I was fortunate to have a chance to demo the game in Los Angeles recently, and while I only got to experience a small sliver of the opening chunk of the game, I really enjoyed what bits of the story, combat, and exploration I played.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes release date

September 14: Thanks to today’s Nintendo Direct, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes now has a release date. We’ll be seeing it on April 23, 2024.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes was originally funded in 2020 on Kickstarter. The game comes from previous developers of the Suikoden series.

Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes delayed

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has been delayed, and will not be launching this year as was previously planned.

In a Kickstarter post, the team explained that the move was put in place “to deliver a game that so many fans have supported”. Further added, “The decision was made in order to ensure the best possible story, and to reward the legion of backers with the best game experience possible.”

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Switch

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is coming to Switch, Rabbit & Bear Studios has been confirmed.

There’s been some uncertainty as to which Nintendo platform we’d be seeing the RPG on. Rabbit & Bear Studios has previously talked about the possibility of putting the game on Switch or its successor.

Following the reemergence of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, developer Rabbit & Bear Studios took to Kickstarter and published a Q&A to address some possible fan concerns.

One notable topic concerns platforms. There has been talk about possibly bringing Eiyuden Chronicle to Switch, but it looks like that might be out the window now. Rabbit & Bear Studios says that the game is planned for Nintendo’s next-gen hardware. It’s unclear if the situation would change if something such as a Switch upgrade were to be introduced.

The Q&A also touches on the delay from 2022 to 2023. Aside from having to create a large amount of content, it also sounds like the team has been impacted by the coronavirus.

Here’s the full Q&A:

Eiyuden Chronicle, Rabbit & Bear Studios’ spiritual successor to Suikoden, was a rousing success on Kickstarter. Fans backed the project with a total of $4.57 million – significantly more than the original $500,000 target.

Thanks to the Kickstarter success, many stretch goals were reached as well. These include new modes, mini-games, additional gameplay systems, and even an additional character. For one of the final stretch goals, a companion game has also been secured, which will be made by NatsumeAtari.

Eiyuden Chronicle

Eiyuden Chronicle has achieved massive success on Kickstarter after the campaign went live earlier today. In just a few hours, the project already exceeded $1 million. In addition to the main funding goal, the console stretch goal has been met as well.

Based on what we’ve heard from Rabbit & Bear Studios, we should be seeing Eiyuden Chronicle on some sort of Nintendo console. Whether it’s Switch or something else, however, remains to be seen. A new Nintendo console is clearly the team’s goal, but it sounds like they’re willing to put in the work for a Switch version as well.
