A couple of days ago, we informed you about a new JRPG from the developers of SUIKODEN. As we reported back then, its team was planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign today. And, we are happy to report that Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has been funded in just a few hours since its launch.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes will be a JRPG with a similar gameplay to SUIKODEN. The game will have a traditional 6-character battle system, utilizing painstakingly created 2D sprites and gorgeous 3D backgrounds. Players will be able to recruit over 100 heroes, and there will be a fortress-building and guild system.
Eiyuden Chronicle will have a vast world to explore, full of lush biomes, bustling towns, creepy caves, and quiet villages. Players can talk to townsfolk to learn more about the region. Additionally, they can explore remote locations and fight secret bosses, or maybe just enjoy the gorgeous scenery.
As said, the game will employ a traditional turn based RPG battle system where players take command of up to six individual units against either an army, or a single large creature. Players can choose commands for each of their characters, and then watch them carry out their orders in full motion combat.
Over time, your heroes will also learn special AI abilities. Thus, they will be able to perform on their own in battle, adding to the strategic element of combat. Characters will learn more AI commands as they grow stronger. Not only that, but some characters will even link their AI commands together for added effects. Players will also be able to customize which AI commands their characters use in battle.
