Rabbit & Bear Studios’ JRPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has just passed its stretch goal set at $1,000,0000 on Kickstarter, and it’s a rather important one.
Following the stretch goal that unlocked the “Fortress Mode” at $750,000, this one promises backers a console release for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and a potential next-gen successor of the Nintendo Switch.
These platforms are, of course, in addition to the initially-confirmed PC version.
Following the launch of the Kickstarter campaign earlier today, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes achieved its primary funding goal in about two hours.
Speaking of stretch goals, two more have been revealed. At $1.25 million, the game will include a cooking minigame. $1.5 million will unlock the New Game Plus.
If you’re wondering what the developers mean by a possible next-gen console by Nintendo, you can read their full statement on platforms below.
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.
For the sake of full disclosure, the author of this article has backed the game at a basic level in the first minutes of the campaign. He’s that excited.
