Suikoden is among the biggest RPG games of the unique PlayStation period – and that’s saying one thing. The sequence has been dormant for nicely over a decade, and whereas Konami has no obvious plans to convey it again, the unique builders do – a spiritual successor known as Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is on the way in which, and the early photos of the sport look completely beautiful.
Eiyuden Chronicle, led by Suikoden creator Yoshitaka Murayama and different sequence veterans, will characteristic a six-character celebration made up of 100 recruitable heroes from across the recreation’s fantasy world. In different phrases: sure, that is completely a new Suikoden recreation. The boss battles will even play out with a dynamic digicam that takes new angles to comply with the motion – although that’s seemingly going to look a lot extra spectacular with trendy tech.
The recreation will hit Kickstarter on July 27, with an preliminary funding purpose of $500,000. That’ll cowl a PC launch, whereas additional stretch targets will open up growth on extra console platforms. Development studio Rabbit & Bear was based earlier this yr, so Eiyuden Chronicle is probably going solely now within the very early phases of manufacturing.
The recreation’s visible goal already looks extraordinarily interesting, although, with a mix of 3D backgrounds, 2D pixel artwork, and fabulous lighting that looks a entire lot like Octopath Traveler.
The devs have offered a host of extra particulars to Gematsu. I’d count on a lengthy, lengthy anticipate Eiyuden Chronicle, however the pedigree and the early looks appear extraordinarily promising.
