A 2D action RPG will set the stage for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising has a release date. The prequel to Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is coming to PC, Xbox Game Pass, and all major consoles on May 10.
Last year, the mere existence of Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising came as a complete surprise. Developer Rabbit & Bear Studios never mentioned Rising during their wildly successful Kickstarter campaign for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, so when a prequel game was first announced at last summer’s Xbox E3 showcase. , fans were totally shocked.
Little was known about Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising other than it would set the stage for Hundred Heroes, but thanks to a 30-minute developer previewwe have a much better idea of what we’re getting into with Rising.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is a 2D action RPG that shares the same art style as Hundred Heroes and introduces us to the world of Eiyuden Chronicle. Rather than controlling an entire party of many characters, Rising reduces your workload by simply controlling one of three characters at a time.
You’ll start as a young scavenger named CJ who scavenges for materials to help rebuild a crumbling mining town. He will soon meet the town’s young mayor to investigate the ancient ruins discovered after a recent earthquake. And then the two will meet a wandering swordsman named Garoo who also happens to be a kangaroo.
Combat involves actively swapping between each of the three characters to chain attacks and buffs together. It’s a very different style to what we saw in the Hundred Heroes trailer, which kind of gives proof that Rising will be a small spin-off appetizer while Hundred Heroes is the main course.
We won’t have to wait long to find out if that’s the case. Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising arrives on May 10, while Hundred Heroes will receive a release date later in 2023.
