While younger players may have never heard of it, the Suikoden series is still considered among the finest Japanese role-playing game series ever made. The five main entries in the series by Konami took place in a very complex world, and the stories that did take place in it were all extremely moving.
With series creator Yoshitaka Murayama having left Konami years ago, it’s very unlikely that a new Suikoden game will ever be released. Fans, however, have Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes to look forward to, a new game by the Suikoden creator that will feel and play a lot like the classic entries in the series.
A prequel adventure to this game, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, is now available on Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck, and other consoles. Here’s how long it takes to beat this game.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising – How Long to Beat
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is a Metroidvania game enhanced by role-playing game mechanics, so it doesn’t take as long to beat as any full-fledged role-playing game.
Those who just want to enjoy the game’s main story won’t have to spend a lot of time with the game, as it takes around 10 hours to complete all of the main quests. Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, however, has plenty of side content for players to sink their teeth into, and if they decide to do so, they are looking at a 15, 20 hours total playtime, depending on how quickly you can complete the many sidequests of the game. The world of Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is extremely beautiful, so you will probably want to continue playing the game even after you are done with the main quest to experience more of it.
