I see action on the way.
After a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign in 2020, the Suikoden “spiritual successor” Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes was delayed until 2023. It’s companion prequel, however, is now just a month away. Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising for Nintendo Switch is scheduled for release on May 10th, 2022.
Published by 505 Games in collaboration with Rabbit & Bear Studios (headed by Yoshitaka Murayama, a creator of Suikoden) and NatsumeAtari, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is a fast-paced 2.5D action RPG with town-upgrading elements. In it, players will take on the roles of three star-crossed heroes as they explore the dungeons in an attempt to mine for magic and rebuild the town of new Naveah.
Delve into the ruins and master Rising’s satisfying combat. Dash in quick and strike with CJ’s climbing axes, sling sorcery from afar as Isha, and punish foes with Garoo’s gigantic sword. Topple imaginative bosses by swapping between each character and unleashing devastating Link Attacks combining each hero’s specialty, all while platforming through gorgeous 2.5D environments.
Scavenge dungeons and earn materials to reconstruct New Neveah to its former glory and reap benefits applying to Hundred Heroes when it releases in 2023. Cross content includes special cosmetic items, valuable equipment, and trade goods. Make a personal mark on the world of Eiyuden Chronicle by naming certain weapons and delicacies in Rising that will carry over to Hundred Heroes next year.
Within the Runebarrows hides a deep-rooted conspiracy with shocking ramifications for the Eiyuden Chronicle universe. Prepare for Hundred Heroes’ intricate plot and globe-spanning adventure by playing through the inciting events in Rising.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising will be available May 10th in the Nintendo Switch for $14.99. For more information, visit eiyudenchronicle.com.
