Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising early build footage shown at TGS 2021
Microsoft's Xbox Tokyo Game Show 2021 broadcast featured an early demo build of Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising. Yoshitaka Murayama and Junko Kawano showed up briefly at the broadcast to share the latest updates on the new IP made as a spiritual successor to the Suikoden series. They also revealed that the development studio in charge of Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is Natsume-Atari.
The demo build gameplay, which can be watched from the 47:35 mark, shows Garoo traversing a forest while slashing through enemy monsters with side-scrolling action gameplay. It was presented by Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising's scenario writer Tadashi Satomi, who previously worked on the first two Persona titles, the Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga series, and The Caligula Effect.
Satomi also verbally mentioned the game's setting in the broadcast. An earthquake that occurred a few months ago caused relics to appear around a mining village. Many people—including several main characters of the mainline Eiyuden Chronicle—will visit the relics to find treasure.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising will be available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC in 2022. More information on both Eiyuden Chronicle and Rising is to be expected when Yoshitaka Murayama and Junko Kawano show up at 505 Games' TGS 2021 stream on October 1 at 18:00 JST (09:00 UTC).
