Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes will be coming to PlayStation 5 after the game's Kickstarter page received enough pledges to see its funding total reach $1 million. This was the goal set by Rabbit & Bear studios in order to ensure a PS5 version is developed and the Suikoden fanbase has blown past that target in just seven hours. With another 31 days of the fundraising campaign to go, that makes for some seriously impressive reading.
In case you're not aware, this project is being pitched as the spiritual successor to Konami's classic RPG franchise named Suikoden. Members of the original development team are working on Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes with a projected release date pencilled in for 2022.
It'll be an "ode to the classic JRPG genre from the PlayStation era that will feature classic JRPG exploration and battles in high-resolution 2.5D graphics, pixel-based characters, a story of war and friendship, a diverse cast of 100 unique heroes to join the protagonist's endeavor, and a fortress building system to grow their army". Now we just have to wait two years before we can play it for ourselves. Fans are now targetting even further stretch goals including a New Game+ option and a cooking mini-game.
