Today Tokyo-based Rabbit & Bear Studios announced that it will bring its first project Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes to Kickstarter.
The name “Rabbit & Bear Studios” will likely be unfamiliar, but the developers at its helm will probably ring a bell if you love JRPGs.
The game is a new JRPG titled Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, and it has been announced for PC only for now. Yet, it might get additional platforms via stretch goal. The release window is fall 2022.
The Kickstarter campaign will launch on Monday, July 27.
Visuals will be in 2.5D, featuring 100 heroes to recruit within your army. Battles will be turn-based with parties of six characters. Town-buildings elements will also be included.
Below you can read about the story of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.
Our story begins in one corner of Allraan, a tapestry of nations with diverse cultures and values.
By dint of sword, and by way of magical objects known as “rune-lenses,”
the land’s history has been shaped by the alliances and aggressions of the humans, beastmen, elves, and desert people who live there.
The Galdean Empire has edged out other nations and discovered a technology that amplifies the rune-lenses’ magic.
Now, the Empire is scouring the continent for an artifact that will expand their power even further.
It is on one such expedition that Seign Kesling, a young and gifted imperial officer, and Nowa, a boy from a remote village, meet each other and become friends.
However, a twist of fate will soon drag them into the fires of war, and force them both to reexamine everything they believe to be right and true.
We also get a comment from Murayama-san himself.
We, at Rabbit & Bear, have recently announced our new title “Eiyuden Chronicle”.
It’s a game that the team has put its heart and soul into.
Basically, it was a challenge to ourselves – “Can we not make the most interesting game of our lives? No limits.
Just following our creative paths as they are” In all my years of development the number one thing that has made me happy is hearing a fan express enjoyment at playing my games.
So that’s what I’m setting out to do with “Eiyuden Chronicle”—To make as many fans happy as possible.
However, we can’t do it alone.
In order to succeed we need your strength, support, and hope.
Right now more than ever, we need heroes to realize this dream.
We hope you’ll join us!
