Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is approaching its April 23, 2024 release date. Since our last update, the team shared a video showing something off. We will share that video below as well as the update for December 2023. December’s update is shorter as we start to get back on track. In this update, we get some information about the PC edition, Murayama’s monthly update, a sneak peek from Komuta, and news about the update schedule. So let’s get into December’s update for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes!
Hey there, Heroes!
The end of 2023 is nearing and that means… a new year and more importantly the year Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is released to the masses. We have certainly had our ups and downs but continue to work on making the best game possible. We know it’s still a few months away so if you are looking for something to play over the Christmas break you can always pick up Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising and get an introduction to some of the key characters (and wield a giant sword as a kangaroo!)
Wish you and yours the happiest of holidays!
Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes Pc Edition
The team wanted to clear up any confusion about physical copies for PC. So to clear that up they said this about Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes on PC:
Regarding the PC physical edition, the game will be provided as a code in a physical PC box, not as a physical disc. Mastering a PC version, creating the installer, checking that version, and manufacturing the CDs make the code in a box the most viable solution. We thank you for your understanding.
With the end of the year being kind of crazy for the team the updates haven’t been on their normal cadence. So the team had this to say about their update schedule in 2024 leading to the release of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes:
While we largely kept to the last Wednesday of every month up until recently, platform selections and other logistical updates knocked us off track a bit. Due to the year-end holidays, the next update will be on January 10th. From there we’ll return to our regular end-of-month updates straight up until launch.
Murayama’s Monthly Update
One of the most informative parts of these updates is Murayama’s section. He has gone over a multitude of different things. This month he talks about “bug fixing” which we know has been an issue in this era of gaming for some. This is what Murayama wanted to say about bug fixing for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes:
It’s currently all hands on deck as we work through bug fixing. Bug checking and bug fixing is a heavy task in any game, but RPGs are especially buggy. The scenario progression isn’t so straightforward with some players going different places in the middle of the game, or even running backwards if they want. Because you have to deal with such cases, you need a lot of backup events that many players will never see.
Not only that, the Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes biography is packed with a huge number of characters, each with its own battle and war scenario settings. Not forgetting all the facilities available in the hub town, each of which needs to be checked too. It’s no surprise then why the number of bug check reports is enormous. In the past, these reports were written out by hand and just looking at them piled up inches high would make me feel pretty hopeless.
Murayama Continues To Explain
These reports are conducted online now, but it’s still not much different in terms of psychological damage given the large number of pages of items in each report. But once all these struggles are over, the game will be delivered to you all. Once upon a time, I got a question from a player. “The stairs to the second floor of the inn’s blocked by a barrel. How are you supposed to get to the second floor?” they asked. I’m sorry. The upstairs was actually deleted because a lack of memory made it too buggy, so we put a barrel there to seal it off.”
For me, this is one of my personal most anticipated game releases in many years. So I am happy with the transparency the team has had with fans about everything. Especially talking about bug fixes among other things in Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.
Director Komuta’s Sneak Peek
Thanks to Director Komuta we get another sneak peek. These short clips show a place you will visit in this adventure called Skriss and a dungeon. Here is what Director Komuta had to share in this sneak peek for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes:
Komunichi-wa. Komuban-wa. Director Komuta here.
Development is nearing its climax, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have some in-development sneak peeks to share!
Welcome to snow-covered Skriss Village, a location Nowa and his friends will visit during their adventure.
What on earth do you think happened to this village?
And where do you think frozen Nowa and chums are sliding off to? Since this is the month of Happy Holidays, we wanted to show off a village and dungeon that felt perfect for the winter season. Well, everyone, I hope you have a wonderful holiday! I’ll be sure to show you more glimpses in the next issue, so please look forward to it!
Just a few short months left until we have this hopeful masterpiece in our hands. Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes promises to be a call back to the JRPGS of old. As you can see in this video above there are a plethora of aspects to the game like war battles, turn-based combat, mini-games, and much much more. This game will be available on all platforms and will be released on day one on Game Pass. I personally haven’t played any of it yet, but with what I and other’s know I feel like it truly could be a Game of the Year contender in 2024!
