Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is an action role-playing game that was developed by Natsume Atari and published by 505 Games this year. This is the first game in the Suikoden series and is often considered a spiritual successor. Whether you like action games or strategy ones, this game will have you engrossed in its world and characters.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising Overview
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is originally a manga series about a young adventurer named CJ. The game looks similar to the manga series. In the game, you play as CJ, a teenage girl who comes to the town of New Nevaeh in search of adventure. As you advance through the story, you will unlock different dungeons.
While Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is a 2D action platformer, it’s not a “Metroidvania” game, as some critics claim. Instead, it relies heavily on exploration, puzzle-solving, and backtracking. Although the combat isn’t a traditional RPG, it does improve as you unlock more characters and move up the difficulty curve. Overall, the game is a decent time-waster but doesn’t live up to the expectations of those who prefer the more challenging games.
