Japan: Eiyuden Chronicle is now the most funded video game project ever

Rabbit & Bear Studios recently kickstarted title Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is now the most funded video game ever in Japan. The game reached 3 million in funding which also makes it is the 9th most funded video-game Kickstarter of all time. Here’s what Yoshitaka Murayama, the creative director behind Eiyuden Chronicle had to say about the milestone:

“Eiyuden Chronicle is now the single most backed project by Japanese people ever. For this project, I want to take the fans’ passion and put it in the game—that’s how I feel. I’ve seen people on social media saying this is the first Kickstarter they have ever backed and it makes me so happy to see that passion and support. Anyone in the entertainment business probably feels the same way—they want to make as many people happy as possible. Usually it’s a feeling you get on release day when you sell your game, but with Eiyuden Chronicle, we are able to feel that even at this current phase. And you get to feel it directly from the fans’ voices which, again, is a great feeling. Thanks for all the enthusiasm and support. It really does keep me going. So please join us on this two year journey of developing this game.”

    1. Okay, that’s irrelevant to what is being talked about here. This is in regards to Japan. Clearly.

  1. It looks really cool but unfortunately I can’t afford to pay $40 for the digital copy when it’s still 2-3 years away. I’ll buy it on launch.

  2. This better be worth it considering the huge amount of money and support it is getting, or else they will get cancel culture SO HARD if they fail this! The pressure is on!
