In recent years, we’ve seen many developers turn to crowdfunding in an attempt to spiritually revive fan-favorite franchises. Projects like the Mega Man-inspired Mighty No. 9, the Castlevania-inspired Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and the Banjo-Kazooie-inspired Yooka-Laylee all saw developers from their franchise of origin create sequels in everything but name. The upcoming Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes follows in step, as it could be considered a spiritual successor to Konami’s classic JRPG franchise, Suikoden.

Unsurprisingly, the crowdfunding campaign was a massive success, which led to a wide array of stretch goals being hit, including one that promised the release of a companion game. Now, that companion game has finally been released in the form of Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, a side-scrolling action RPG set in the same world as Hundred Heroes.

One of this game's highlights is the excellent designs from Suikoden veteran Junko Kawano

Back in 2018, famous content creator Ninja tweeted that he was doing something for the Smash/fighting game community, but nothing ever came of it. Fans have been wondering what happened for years, and it looks like we may finally know.

While playing poker with Ludwig, another famous streamer who got his start in the Smash scene, he revealed that he had planned on adding $500k to the Smash prize pool for EVO 2019.

That was on Nintendo and not me… It’s 100% absolutely the case. All I wanted to do was create a massive tournament and juice Evo like $500K, but I wanted to get Nintendo’s permission, and they just ghosted us.

[Ninja]

It’s a shame that Nintendo ghosted him and nothing ever came of it, but at least we know what Ninja had in mind all those years ago.
