Upcoming indie RPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has found a global publisher in the form of 505 Games, known for Dead by Daylight, the PC release of Death Stranding, Defense Grid 2, and co-publishing Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.
Eiyuden is a spiritual successor to Konami’s vaunted Suikoden franchise, coming from largely the same creative team as the original three games in that series. The development studio Rabbit & Bear Studios includes franchise creator Yoshitaka Muryama, artist Junko Kawano, director Osamu Komuta, and producer and art director Junichi Murakami.
Following a highly successful Kickstarter, the Eiyuden team has been keeping fans regularly updated across development, and the publishing deal with 505 Games was announced on February 11th to Kickstarter backers via the YouTube video below.
