Eiyuden Chronicle Is One Of The Biggest Video Game Kickstarter Projects Ever – GameSpot

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is an upcoming RPG billed as a spiritual successor to the Suikoden series, and the pitch videos we’ve seen thus far are very impressive. They’re so impressive, in fact, that the game managed to get more than $4.5 million in Kickstarter donations before its campaign ended on Saturday.

This impressive figure puts Eiyuden Chronicle as the third-biggest video game Kickstarter in history, trailing only Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and Shenmue 3. Those games were both essentially successors to existing series, as well, with Shenmue 3 being an official sequel while Bloodstained acted as a spiritual successor to the dormant Castlevania series.

Because Eiyuden Chronicle destroyed its initial funding goal of only around $500,000, developer Rabbit & Bear studios added many stretch goals during the campaign, and all of them were reached. This included a battle defense mode, asynchronous mode, new characters, card battle mode, and a full orchestra for the music. It will also have Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, and Russian localization because of the funding.

Much like the Suikoden series, Eiyuden Chronicle will feature a large cast of characters and it’s being developed with original creator Yoshitaka Murayama’s involvement. 2D characters are combined with 3D environments in an art style reminiscent of Octopath Traveler, making the game look like a living diorama. It’s planned for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo’s hypothetical next-gen system.
