About Eiyuden Chronicle Rising
Once a thriving city on the continent of Allraan, New Neveah is in bad shape due to a devastating earthquake. However, all is not lost – the earthquake revealed ancient runic arrows deep underground. As the townspeople rebuild, adventurers from around the world arrive to plunder the ruins’ riches, including powerful artifacts called Rune Lenses. Here, three future heroes embark on a journey with profound implications for the Eiyuden Chronicle universe.
Meet the future heroes
CJ, a carefree and confident treasure hunter, hopes to complete her rite of passage by bringing home some loot worthy of her family name. Isha, a powerful spellcaster and daughter of New Neveah’s missing mayor, taxes opportunistic scavengers at every turn to rebuild the city. Beastman Mercenary Garoo says he’s only in it for the money, but his heart is secretly as big as his punishing sword.
Master each character’s distinct fighting style: nimble double-jump at opponents as CJ, teleport and unleash ice magic as Isha, and deflect projectile attacks as Garoo before counterattacking with massive sword blows. Take on massive bosses and take them down with devastating timing-based combos known as Link Attacks.
Explore beast-infested forests, mystical ruins, frost-covered mountain peaks, and other breathtaking locations. Rising’s beautiful art style combines 3D environments, awesome sprites, and hand-painted enemies to convey an incredible sense of depth. A nostalgic soundtrack completes these vivid visuals, solidifying Eiyuden as an action RPG for fans of the classics and newcomers alike.
Transfer goodies to Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes
