505 Games, Rabbit & Bear Studios, and Natsume Atari have announced that the upcoming ARPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising will be released on May 10, 2022, for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It will also be a day one release on Xbox Game Pass.
The game is set to be a prequel to the Suikoden spiritual successor, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, which is coming out in 2023. We recently got a chance to preview the game, saying that “the amount of detail that the developers have poured into this gives us hope for what Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes will look like when it is released.”
You can see an overview of the game below:
After a massive earthquake revealed Runebarrows deep below a town on the remote frontier of the Allraan known as New Nevaeh, fortune-seeking adventurers and merchants from across the world arrive. Among those hoping to find treasure, three star-crossed heroes come together. CJ, the Venerable Scavenger, and Garoo, the Beastman Mercenary, hope to mine the Rune Lens, a source of magic hidden underground. Isha, the Young Deputy Mayor, wants to rebuild her town.
Delve into the ruins and master Rising’s satisfying combat. Dash in quick and strike with CJ’s climbing axes, sling sorcery from afar as Isha, and punish foes with Garoo’s gigantic sword. Topple imaginative bosses by swapping between each character and unleashing devastating Link Attacks combining each hero’s specialty, all while platforming through gorgeous 2.5D environments.
Scavenge dungeons and earn materials to reconstruct New Neveah to its former glory and reap benefits applying to Hundred Heroes when it releases in 2023. Cross content includes special cosmetic items, valuable equipment, and trade goods. Make a personal mark on the world of Eiyuden Chronicle by naming certain weapons and delicacies in Rising that will carry over to Hundred Heroes next year.
Within the Runebarrows hides a deep-rooted conspiracy with shocking ramifications for the Eiyuden Chronicle universe. Prepare for Hundred Heroes’ intricate plot and globe-spanning adventure by playing through the inciting events in Rising.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising will release on May 10, 2022 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
