Suikoden Spiritual Successor, Eiyuden Chronicle, Reached Kickstarter Goal In Two Hours

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the spiritual successor to Suikoden and Suikoden II, has met its Kickstarter goal of about $500,000 USD in about two hours. The campaign went live at 9 AM PST today to help fund Suikoden and Suikoden II writer and director Yoshitaka Murayama’s next project. Kickstarter crashed for about 45 minutes during the campaign.

The initial goal funds the development of a PC release; however, there is a stretch goal at $1,000,000 to bring the game to all major consoles. Considering the campaign is live through August 28, and it took less than 24 hours to fund $500,000, a console release seems likely.

The game was announced on July 27, and is being developed by Rabbit & Bear, an independent studio founded in Tokyo earlier this year. Eiyuden Chronicle is a 2.5D turn-based JRPG featuring a massive cast of 100 heroes. The game will feature a six character party system, as well as a fort-building element to house your heroes.
