Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes’ Theater Minigame Has Roughly 15,000 Lines & Voice Acting; Hot Spring Scenes Discussed
The most recent Kickstarter backer update for the upcoming turn-based JRPG, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, has shared comments from the staff discussing the Theater and hot spring scenes.
Firstly, the central hub town of the game features several minigames, one of which is the Theater. It comprises assigning characters to a play of your choice, with them performing to their friends. There’s a great variety of events to experience here since the delivery of lines alters depending on the chosen character and their role.
For instance, they can be faithful, overly enthusiastic, shorten their deliveries, or outright ruin the scenes. And as if that wasn’t enough, the Theater will be voiced, and around 15,000 lines of text will be incorporated into this sole minigame. However, it has not been explicitly specified if every Theater interaction will be fully voiced.
Secondly, the hot spring scenes were discussed, with extensive effort and detail poured into making each character’s bath-time version pixel art distinctive and identifiable. This expressed individuality is especially impressive considering the vast cast and the multitude of design finalizations and scenes to oversee.
All of this aforementioned side content has been developed with the intention of putting each character into the spotlight as much as feasibly possible.

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