Let’s add this to the list of games that I didn’t expect to have me so hooked. Over the past week, I have been playing Eiyuden Chronicle Rising, and boy, it’s an absolute gem of a title. Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is an action role-playing game made by developer Natsume Atari and published by 505 Games based in the same universe as Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes that has fast-paced fighting and town-upgrading mechanics. This title is also the spiritual successor to Suikoden. This alone will have fans extremely excited to play. Additionally, Rising was the final and stretch goal for the Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Kickstarter. Needless to say, thank you to everyone who pushed the title on the platform as we are able to play the prologue to the Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes universe which is set to release in 2023.
The pre-war stories of many characters who would eventually become your companions in Eiyuden Chronicle are woven together in this game. This title presents a portion of the Eiyuden Chronicle cast of characters. Players that link the game to the Eiyuden Chronicle will receive certain benefits in The Heroes of the Hundred.
Personally, Eiyuden Chronicle Rising had not originally piqued my interest. It seemed like a much watered-down version of the upcoming Hundred Heroes. Safe to say, I was wrong. This game quickly became something of its own to appreciate. Even if the town building is not your cup of tea, the atmosphere and character-building cause you to care about what is happening with the people of New Nevaeh. Mix in some great action and fantastic artwork Eiyuden Chronicle Rising holds its own as a viable title, not just a game to kill time until Hundred Heroes.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is out now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Additionally, it’s playable day one on Xbox Game Pass.
