Calling all JRPG players: deep down, you know you’ve wanted to build that perfect JRPG town, with farms, vendors, and food stalls abound. If you’ve had that oddly specific fantasy before, then you’re in luck. Publisher 505 Games and developer Rabbit & Bear Studios announced a release date for the upcoming RPG town building game, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising. Headed by Suikoden creator Yoshitaka Murayama, you’ll be able to dive into some chaotic RPG combat while reconstructing the town of New Nevaeh back to its former glory.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising will serve as a prequel game to another JRPG coming soon, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes. In the game’s story, a gigantic earthquake shakes the town of New Nevaeh to its core, revealing Runebarrows for adventurers and merchants to seek. Different characters from all over come together; some seeking riches, and some seeking to rebuild the once-beautiful town.
Build up those walls
The game will feature plenty of dungeons where you can earn materials, and riches and reconstruct the town of New Nevaeh. Additionally, it appears the game will feature a direct connection with Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes. According to the game’s release date announcement on Steam, you’ll be able to “reap benefits applying to Hundred Heroes when it releases in 2023,” which should include content like “cosmetic items, valuable equipment, and trade goods.”
Your investigation of the Runebarrows will uncover a “deep-rooted conspiracy with shocking ramifications.” But you’ll have to wait until the game’s release to find out what those secrets really are. Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is set to release on May 10. Meanwhile, its sister game, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes will release sometime in 2023.
