Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the long-awaited spiritual successor to the Suikoden RPG saga, has received a new gameplay trailer more than a year after its last appearance.
Revealed exclusively during IGN’s Gamescom studio broadcast, the game’s first full trailer since 2021 showcases more direct gameplay than we’ve seen before, including exploring the world’s 3D environments with 2D sprite characters, silent story moments, glimpses into a selection of the 100+ characters, and of course, the game’s beautifully stylized combat sequences.
The trailer ends with what appears to be a showdown between main characters Nowa and Seign atop a sunny bridge, and it promises more information to come at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
Developed by key development team members for the classic RPG Suikoden saga, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes aims to build on those ideas with many recruitable heroes, a stronghold-building system, and an impressive look. It’s been a hugely popular move, with the game becoming the third most-backed video game Kickstarter project in history when it launched in 2020.
Since then, the team has provided backers monthly updates and even released a spin-off action game to introduce some of the main characters, titled Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising.
