Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Director Reveals Auto-Tactics Battle Mechanic; Development Now Incorporates Live Background Music

In the latest Kickstarter backer update for the highly anticipated turn-based JRPG, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the team shared more information and developmental insight.

The game’s director, Osamu Komuta, discussed one of the combat mechanics known as Auto Tactics. This auto-battle system makes it so that those who find standard enemy encounters annoying will have an “easier and more rewarding experience.” Komuta also clarified that this system isn’t only meant for battling foes immensely weaker than you, as with the default settings, standard encounters will run fine. The party members will even heal themselves in dire straits. Additional details on the Auto Tactics system will be revealed in the future.

Moreover, Komuta reiterated that development is in its final stages, but they’ve recently managed to incorporate their live background music in-game.

We’ll continue to keep you all updated on the development and eventual release of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is meant to be a love letter to the classic Japanese RPG genre featuring exploration and battles in high-resolution 2.5D graphics using pixel-based characters, similar to what we saw in Octopath Traveler. The story will revolve around war and friendship and introduce a diverse cast of 100 unique heroes to join the quest, which is very Suikoden.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is releasing for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2023.
