Eiyuden Chronicle Rising

The Game Pass announcements are coming thick and fast, the latest being that Action-RPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising hits the service on day one, May 10th.

Rising, and its sequel Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, were both announced as Xbox Game Pass titles last summer. However, neither had definitive release dates until now, with the prequel now set to launch next month.

It's always good to see day one Game Pass additions, especially Japanese titles that historically have struggled to find a core audience on Xbox platforms. Here's a quick rundown of what Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising has to offer:

Delve into the stunning Runebarrows in classic side-scrolling action, swapping between three characters with distinct abilities. Deftly combine CJ’s swift strikes, Isha’s powerful magic, and beastman mercenary Garoo’s punishing blade to create destructive Link Attacks. Uncover a conspiracy with far-reaching implications, setting the scene for next year’s Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.

The sequel, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, is set to launch on Xbox Game Pass sometime in 2023.

Will you be giving this one a go when it launches on Game Pass in May? Let us know in the comments.
