The once thriving city of New Nevaeh, on the continent of Allraan, is in a state of disrepair after a devastating earthquake. But all is not lost – the earthquake has uncovered ancient rune mounds deep beneath the earth.
As the residents rebuild the city, adventure seekers from all over the world flock to plunder the ruins’ riches, including powerful artifacts called rune lenses. Here, three budding heroes embark on a journey that will have far-reaching implications for the Eiyuden Chronicle universe.
CJ, a carefree and confident treasure hunter, hopes to fulfill her initiation rite by bringing home loot worthy of her family name.
Isha, a powerful sorceress and daughter of the missing mayor of New Nevaeh, wreaks havoc on scavengers to rebuild the city. Animal mercenary Garoo claims he’s only in it for the money, but secretly his heart is as big as his punishing sword.
Each character has a unique fighting style to master: CJ can double jump over enemies, Isha can teleport and unleash an ice spell, while Garoo can deflect projectiles before countering with his massive sword. In addition, time-based combos must be used, so-called link attacks, to defeat the bosses.
Beast-haunted forests, mystical ruins, frosty mountain peaks and other special locations need to be explored. Rising’s graphic style combines 3D environments, impressive sprites, and hand-painted enemies to give a better sense of depth.
A nostalgic soundtrack accompanies the lively visuals and makes Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising an action RPG for fans of the classics and newcomers alike.
In order to help the residents of New Nevaeh, materials must be collected in dungeons. New weapons, armor, accessories and more can be unlocked by rebuilding shops around town.
Players can receive additional rewards that can be carried over into next year’s Hundred Heroes. Including cosmetic items, valuable equipment, trade goods and more.
The events of Rising set the stage for the storyline and world-spanning adventure of Hundred Heroes. Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC via Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store. 505 Games also announced today that the game will also be released for Nintendo Switch.
