Starting back in July, the Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Kickstarter ended over the weekend. Raising roughly £3.4 million, it has become one of the most successful gaming projects on the platform.
Marketed as a spiritual successor to the Suikoden series, there was clearly a lot of interest in the game. The final amount raised easily surpassed the stretch goals set for this Kickstarter, including a lot of extra content that will be available in the final release.
Following a similar plan to the Bloodstained Kickstarter, Rabbit & Bear Studios have announced that a companion game is being developed. Planned to release before Eiyuden Chronicle, this game will be made in partnership with Natsume-Atari.
Natsume are mainly known for creating the modern Harvest Moon games, so only time will tell if this companion title turns out to be decent.
As for Eiyuden Chronicle, it wont be out until 2022 at the earliest. A long wait for sure, but Suikoden fans have already been waiting for a long time. A few more years doesn’t seem too bad at this point, as long as the final product ends up capturing the magic of Konami’s long-dormant series.
