Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, the new JRPG of the newly created studio Rabbit & Bear by those responsible for the classic Suikoden, has achieved great success in its recently launched financing campaign through Kickstarter, surpassing 435,000 euros in a few hours and achieving the minimum financing to carry out the project.
