Eiyuden Chronicles: Hundred Heroes was announced less than a month ago and since then it has blasted its way through its initial Kickstarted goal in a couple of hours. Now, the total stands at $3.08 Million, and in the process unlocking multiple stretch goals including the 108th character.
Because of this, developers Rabbit & Bear Studios have announced the 109th character which will be unlocked when the $3.125 Million mark is reached, which we fully expect to happen sometime within the day. Further stretch goals are voices in cutscenes at $3.1 million, and 2 hidden stretch goals at $3.175 and $3.25 million named “Show Your Allegiance” and “We Have the Technology”, respectively.
Yoshitaka Murayama shared that Eiyuden Chronicle is the single most backed project ever by the Japanese. Murayama continued to thank the fans by saying “For this project, I want to take the fans’ passion and put it in the game—that’s how I feel. I’ve seen people on social media saying this is the first Kickstarter they have ever backed and it makes me so happy to see that passion and support. Anyone in the entertainment business probably feels the same way—they want to make as many people happy as possible. Usually it’s a feeling you get on release day when you sell your game, but with Eiyuden Chronicle, we are able to feel that even at this current phase. And you get to feel it directly from the fans’ voices which, again, is a great feeling. Thanks for all the enthusiasm and support. It really does keep me going. So please join us on this two year journey of developing this game.”
Murayama also says that the reason why they did not stop at the 108th character is because a lot of people, including the developers have great respect for that number, choosing to not end there. The 109th character will be determined via a backer vote over at the Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Discord channel and will run for 24 hours.
