In the game’s announcement, he pledged the ‘Heroes’ support to make the developers’ vision a reality, the game is planned to have no compromises.
“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,” director Yoshitaka Murayama said in a press release. “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.”
“The 108th character was born through Stretch Goals. I’m sure some people are fond of this number, as am I,” Murayama said. “But that number was for Suikoden. While we have respect for the number 108, we choose to leave it here and go further. For this commemorable 109th character, we’d like to create a new character with everyone through a voting system.”
