The role-playing game Eiyuden Chronicle attracted 46 thousand backers on Kickstarter, who have already given developers $ 4.5 million. This is almost 900% more than the initially requested amount, and only two games showed the best result before.A fundraising campaign for the development of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, a role—playing game inspired by classic JRPGs, has ended on Kickstarter.
Rabbit & Bear Studios entered the platform on July 27 and in just two hours raised the initially required $ 500 thousand.
As a result, the developers managed to collect 481.6 million rubles ($ 4.54 million) in 32 days and unlock 44 additional goals, including voice acting of dialogues, new characters and Russian localization.
The release of Eiyuden Chronicle is scheduled for 2022 for PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One and PC. Despite the fact that this is the debut game of Rabbit & Bear Studios, the attention to it is explained by the people behind it.
The development of Eiyuden Chronicle is led by Yoshitaka Murayama and Junko Kawano, who are known for creating a series of Suikoden role—playing games. Now they have joined forces in a new studio and plan to release another project as well.
They will be a companion game A Quiet Place, which will allow you to build cities and earn resources in special mini-games (including for use in Eiyuden Chronicle). Its release will take place before the main project and will also introduce players to some characters.
The fundraising campaign of Eiyuden Chronicle showed the third result among all the games in the history of Kickstarter. Only Shenmue III ($7.1 million) and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night ($5.5 million) collected more.
