Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Reveals New Year’s Art & Dragon Partner Gameplay

Rabbit and Bear Studios has shared new information for their upcoming tactical JRPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, comprised of various New Year’s messages from staff, new artwork, and a new gameplay clip.

Director Murakami has confirmed that the Japanese version of the title has entered the phase necessitating final bug checks and fixes, meaning all that’s left afterward is for 505 Games to conclude the localization process and ensure it’s all platform-ready. Director Komura echoed these sentiments while emphasizing the challenge of bug-checking in RPGs, with the number of supported languages and platforms making the process even longer.

Moving on, character designer lead Kawano revealed special New Year’s art celebrating the arrival of 2024. Further, a brief gameplay clip featuring a combo with protagonist Nowa and his partner, the dragon Chandra, was showcased.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes occurs in Allraan, a continent comprised of numerous nations with mystical rune lenses abound. The Galdean Empire relentlessly seeks to collect an artifact that will amplify the efficacy of their runes’ magic power to expand its magical dominance. Amidst this effort, Nowa, a boy from a remote village, meets Seign Kesling, a young imperial officer, and the duo ends up having to reevaluate their morality after continuous unparalleled tragedy pushes them forward.

This should be no surprise given the name, but players should expect over 100 playable characters, where strong relationships give rise to Hero Combos. Plus, the terrain during these strategic bouts is imperative to take advantage of. To get a better lay of the land, one can utilize War Mode, where Foresight can command unit actions. It’s not all doom and gloom, though, as the continually cultivated hub hosts various facilities and minigames that will become unlocked the further you progress.

Those wanting to see a bit of the Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes world can play the action RPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, which features a few characters in a self-contained adventure.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes will launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on April 23, 2024.
