Eiyuden Chronicle Hits Its Console Port Stretch Goal in Less Than 24 Hours

That's over $1 million raised for the project in less than a day.

Yesterday, Suikoden spiritual successor Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes hit its minimum Kickstarter crowdfunding goal in little under two hours. Less than 24 hours after the crowdfunding campaign first went live, Eiyuden Chronicle has hit stretch goals that see the game coming to consoles.

At the time of writing early on July 28, Eiyuden Chronicles's Kickstarter campaign total is sitting pretty at $1.6 million. That far surprasses the comparatively minimal goal of the project being made, which was $500,000 in total. Now, having passed the $1 million mark earlier today, Eiyuden Chronicle is officially coming to consoles.

The stretch goal concerning consoles confirms that Eiyuden Chronicle will be arriving on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. There's no mention of a Nintendo Switch port, but there is the mention of "Nintendo's next-generation console" within the console stretch goal. Saying that the game is realistically two or three years away from release, developer Rabbit & Bear Studios is basically betting on there being another version of the Nintendo Switch by the time Eiyuden Chronicle releases (but don't take this as confirmation that there will be).

Additionally, the Kickstarter page for the game confirms that the goal is to ship backer copies before Eiyuden Chronicle ships to stores for general purchase. The Kickstarter campaign also isn't incorporating shipping fees into physical rewards for the game, as this is something that will be presented to the backer when it's time for physical goods to be shipped.

It's been pretty fascinating to watch the campaign for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes unfold. A spiritual successor to the long-dormant Konami franchise Suikoden, the Kickstarter has now hit its goal of a New Game Plus mode at $1.5 million raised. The next few goals on the list? New sound effects, Chinese localization, and an entire Guild system.
