Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the spiritual successor to Suikoden, has become the third best-selling Kickstarter video game with a final total of over $4.5 million raised.
Eiyuden Chronicle trails only behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night’s $5.5 million and Shenmue 3’s $6.3 million as the best-selling video game Kickstarter, flying past its original goal of $500,000.
Key members of the development team responsible for the cult classic RPG series Suikoden will be working on Eiyuden Chronicle, and it will take the form of a JRPG with a 2.5D visual style. Furthermore, it will have 100 heroes to recruit, a ‘fortress building system,’ and a turn-based battle system with parties of six characters.
The story of Eiyuden Chronicle will be written by Suikoden series creator and Suikoden 1 and 2 writer Yoshitaka Murayama, and other ex-Suikoden team members will handle the character design, system design, and direction.
Since this Kickstarter surpassed its goal in a major way, many of the stretch goals were met, including PS5, Xbox Series X, and Switch versions, and a companion game called A Quiet Place that was the $4.5 million goal.
