Ahead of the launch of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the team has revealed a minigame that players can anticipate, simply titled Card Game.
It’s a simple minigame that requires players to place cards from their hands onto the table to compete for three positions. Director Komuta explicitly explained the systems as follows:
The higher the total of the numbers in the upper left corner of the card = the higher the strength and the better the position you get. Like other card games, matching card colors, numbers or creating combinations with numbers in sequential order gets you bonus points.
Not only that, cards with the same patterns as their friends have skills that activate various effects when certain conditions are met. Hildy’s card is a powerful one that increases your strength by +3 just by playing it.
Some skills are more effective than others, such as those that increase strength if the card colors are different, or others that straight up take away points from your opponent. It’s not a simple matter of building decks and play styles that differ depending on the characters your opponent uses. Buy card packs in the game to acquire cards, and build your own unique and powerful deck to become the best card battler!

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