Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has been confirmed for release on Nintendo Switch along with the previously announced platforms – even though it was originally announced for a next-generation Nintendo console.
“That’s right! Given recent speculation over the Nintendo Switch and potential next-generation Nintendo iterations, we wanted to play it safe and investigate what options we had before fully committing to a Nintendo Switch version,” Rabbit & Bear Studios announced.
“But now the wait is over and we’re delighted to confirm that Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes will also be landing on Nintendo Switch!”
The Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Kickstarter launched in 2020 and it hit its initial crowdfunding goal of $3 million in only two hours. The Kickstarter page originally noted that Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes would release on “Nintendo’s next-generation console,” if the platform holder ended up launching a successor before the game was released.
The Nintendo Switch is now in its fifth year and whether a successor is in the works is currently up in the air. Nintendo has stated that it’s trying to make the transition smooth and prevent the same mistakes it did when moving from Wii to Wii U.
It seems like development on Hundred Heroes is progressing nicely and the game is set to launch sometime in 2023 regardless of the Nintendo Switch’s status. The game will also release on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
A prequel companion game called Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising was released earlier this month. In our review, we said, “Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising does exactly what any good companion game should do. Not only does this RPG set the stage nicely for the upcoming Eiyden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, it’s an enjoyable adventure that stands up on its own merits.”
