What Is Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes?
Well, aside from having an incredible JRPG name, it’s an upcoming JRPG from the newly formed studio Rabbit & Bear Studios. “[It] is both a throwback to the classic RPG games,” says studio lead Murayama. Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes features a huge narrative with 100 characters all of whom are connected with one another and a cast of incredibly likable protagonists! The narrative is written by master storyteller, and studio lead, Yoshitaka Murayama, who’s well known for his work on Suikoden I & II.
And then there are the visuals! Just one look at them must have your interest peaked! Taking inspiration from Octopath Traveller, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes features a stunning 2.5D art style with painstakingly created 2D sprites and gorgeous 3D backgrounds.
It would seem that Rabbit & Bear Studios are very happy with their partners 505 Games, as Murayama said, “Given 505 Games’ success and history with titles like Bloodstained and Death Stranding and with the strong personal relationship we have developed with the people there, we feel we have the perfect partner.” Isn’t that wonderful!
