Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Development Nearing Climax; All Hands on Deck for Bug Fixing, Skriss Village Revealed

A new Kickstarter update for the upcoming turn-based RPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has been posted, detailing current goings-on with the game’s development.

Firstly, the team is focusing on bug-fixing with “all hands on deck.” This process is quite time-consuming for an RPG of this scale due to the vast playable roster. Further, the number of explorable areas and sheer number of bug reports make the collective task seem daunting.

Alongside a statement that development for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is “nearing its climax,” a new area has been teased, Skriss Village. It’s a snow-covered locale Nowa and companions will visit during their journey.

Lastly, celebratory holiday artwork was shared, viewable below:

You can view additional Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes details via the game’s official Kickstarter page, where you can also view brief clips of Skriss Village.

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.

In combat, characters with strong ties can perform Hero Combos. Plus, terrain plays a pivotal role throughout encounters, with strategy at the forefront of the experience.
