Eiyuden Chronicle Rising Release Date

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising Release Date and Data Transfer Details Revealed

The Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes prequel, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, is on its way sooner than expected. Today, the release date was announced alongside new information on how Rising will interact with Hundred Heroes. While we still have a while to wait until the main title is released, this NatsumeAtari developed game seems like it’ll be a good appetizer.

What’s the release date for Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising’s release date is May 10, 2022. It’ll launch worldwide on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, and Switch for $14.99. Unlike Eiyuden Chronicles: Hundred Heroes, which will be a JRPG in the vein of Suikoden, Rising is a side-scrolling action RPG. It centers around three characters, CJ, Isha, and Garoo, and their efforts to rebuild a town after an earthquake. They’ll also explore the newly uncovered Runebarrows, which contains both treasure and dangers that might threaten the town’s future. The story will also tie into the larger world as indicated by this PR quote:

“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.”

Those who play Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising will reap some exclusive rewards when Hundred Heroes launches next year. You’ll receive special cosmetic items, trade goods, and equipment, but the coolest part is the effect you can have on the world. You can name certain weapons and food items in Rising and rediscover them while playing Hundred Heroes.

It’s been 16 years since the last Suikoden game was released, and nothing has come close to scratching the itch of recruiting a huge cast of characters. We’re pumped to play Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising and get a taste of what the creative minds behind Suikoden have in store for us.

In other news, it’s going to be a while before we hear more about Kingdom Hearts 4, and Sega says no to NFTs for now.
