Just last month, we shared the unfortunate news of Yoshitaka Murayama, the creator of the Suikoden franchise and the scenario writer for the upcoming Eiyuden Chronicle, passing away. According to other staffers at developer Rabbit & Bear Studios, Murayama succumbed to complications from an ongoing illness.

While Murayama may have passed on before his latest title saw release, we now know that his ideas are going to live on not just through Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, but a sequel as well.

In a Reddit AMA with Rabbit & Bear Studios, the developers confirmed that Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is going to get a sequel. Just a few days back we heard hints of a follow-up being possible, but today we know it’s officially locked in.

“We are moving forward with a sequel. It is very sad that Murayama is not with us anymore, but we have discussed many things with him. I hope we will be able to carry on Murayama’s legacy, and I always want to treasure his last work. I hope many people will support this game.”

We obviously don’t have any details on this sequel, and it’s likely quite a few years off. That said, with Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes coming to Switch in a matter of days, it seems almost definite that the game’s sequel will hit the Switch’s successor. We’ll keep an eye out for an official confirmation moving forward.
