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.
Firstly, the game’s director, Osamu Komuta, announced that various pieces of artwork have now been completed. In particular, he states the following:
“…the art for the characters, backgrounds, enemies, UI, effects and other props, which is one of the most important parts of the game production process, are now finished and Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is finally taking shape as the game’s framework is being fleshed out.”
Now, art polishing is a new priority, with the team ensuring the quality is all up to standard and no design errors were made.
Director Junichi Murakami then went on to elaborate that creating the graphics and art assets has been highly challenging due to the sheer quantity of it all when needing to assess the progress of the Kickstarter. Still, a significant collective step has been completed, so congratulations to the development team on achieving this effort.
Lastly, an imageboard of “a key location in the story and a 3D model of the boss that appears there” has been shared, viewable below:
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.
