Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes review: An incredible homage to retro JRPGs (and it’s on Xbox Game Pass too)


Back in July 2020, a group consisting of veteran developers who created the classic JRPG franchise Suikoden, came together to announce a Kickstarter-backed spiritual successor called Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes. This game sets out to pay tribute to Suikoden as well as other JRPGs from the PlayStation One-era with a traditional turn-based combat system, polished retro graphics, a deep story filled with adventure, war, and a cast of over a hundred memorable characters.

Fast forward four years and Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is now complete and ready to launch on April 23, 2024, for home consoles, Xbox Game Pass, and PCs. I personally haven’t played any of the Suikoden games growing up, nor have I played Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes’ prequel, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising which we reviewed in 2022.
