In the latest project update press release for backers of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the team announced that the title will be receiving a dedicated Nintendo Switch port. This version has been previously teased with no certainty. However, they are now certain of their ability to commit to this version fully.
The title is also releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and PC.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the game’s development.
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.
Battles in the game will be turn-based, with parties of up to six members. More information about the battle system will be revealed soon.
Murayama-san left Suikoden developer Konami in 2002 and formed his own company known as Blue Moon Studio. Since the company’s launch, he has been active in the game development industry by lending his scenario writing skills to several projects, including The Alliance Alive and Warriors Orochi 4. Rabbit & Bear Studios was formed in March 2020 to act as a way for these creators to work on the games they want.
