    In Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes you play as Nowa, a new person to The Watch, but quickly the whole world gets thrown into war and Nowa is the only one who can try and stop it. Here is our Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Review.

    The game was developed by Rabbit and Bear Studios and published by 505 Games, it was released on April 23, 2024, for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

    Set after the events of Rising, in Hundred Heroes you take up the role of captain of the Watch with a new protagonist Nowa. You follow him as he joins the Watch and see the evil plans of the Dux unfold to take over the regions that aren’t in the possession of the imperials. While the game started out as a Kickstarter project, it doesn’t look like it, this really stands out between other games of the sort in the AAA space. With a main story that is filled with questions that just keep getting bigger and side stories that are just icing on the cake, the game is just one massive package of fun.

    The game might have a Hundred Heroes in the title, but this is super misleading, there are actually 120! So it’s even better than they are saying. Most of the characters have some side thing you have to do to unlock them, while others just get added by either talking, bringing another character with you, or with story progression. All the characters have a story or something that makes them unique, and that’s hard to do with over a hundred playable characters, but somehow they managed to do that.

    The gameplay is all turned-based, but there is this bar at the top of the screen that goes in what order based on the speed of the character. It’s your typical JRPG in every way possible, but where the real challenge lies is in picking out the playstyle that works for you with the characters especially early on this can be a bit hard due to the limited characters, but in the late game it’s even harder, because there are so many characters, and you might not know who works best in what situation. I had some trouble with some bosses later on just because I didn’t really build my team too well in the mid-game making some characters a bit under-leveled at times.

    There are also many side activities to do, the main one being building out your castle with new mini-games and stores, these are also semi-locked behind the characters you can recruit, but it isn’t that hard to do. There is this side story with Beyblades, a card game, and cooking. Besides that, there is this theater mode and a mode where you raise a pet and make them race, it truly is so big in what you can do that I lost many hours in the side activities not doing the main story at all.

    I absolutely love this visual style, it’s 3D but the characters are all pixel art cutouts like a few other games recently had as well like triangle strategy. This visual style is what pulled me into the game in the first place but the rest definitely made me stay. It’s an experience that any fan of turn-based combat, JRPGs, and games with a lot of content should play or at least try out.
