Hundred Years’ War: Euro Historia is a strategic role-playing game, surrounding the events of the Hundred Years’ War that took place in Europe, circa 1337 to 1453 A.D., between the Kingdom of England and France. The game’s story will revolve around the profound tales of key historic figures, such as Joan of arc, Edward the Black Prince, and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV (pictured above).

 

The battle system will rely on heavily on strategizing battle formations and other tactics. According to Capcom, there will also be several features yet to be seen in other titles.

 

Hundred Years’ War: Euro Historia’s soundtrack will consist of classical tunes arranged by Yasunori Mitsuda, known for his works in Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, and more recently, Soul Sacrifice. He’ll be backed by Zone of the Enders composer, Maki Kirioka.

 

Hundred Years’ War: Euro Historia will begin service on December 19th for Windows and Mac. It will be free-to-play, with the addition of premium items that can be acquired with cash.

    I’ve noticed something about Capcom.

    Koei makes Samurai Warriors
    Capcom makes Sengoku Basara
    Koei makes Bladestorm: Hundred Years War
    Capcom makes Hundred Years War: Euro Historia

    • SMT

      xD

    • Brandonmkii

      I’m still waiting on a Sangoku Basara or a Euro Basara from Capcom.

      • Göran Isacson

        Word. I think that a Basara-style game with European history could be the bees knees… mostly because I’d like to have a game where I can play Swedish kings riding like, I don’t know, lions made from lasers or something, fighting against the Catholics. Just because.

          ARE YOU READY GUYS? PUT CHA GUNS ON!

          • Göran Isacson

            Yes. YES.

            Or it’s a line delivered in really badly accented Swedish. Or German a lot of big players at the time spoke German. I would both cringe and delight, truth be told.

      It actually starts even earlier.

      Koei made strategy games based of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Capcom then made “Destiny of an Emperor”, based off of the “Tenchi wo Kurau” manga (which is also based off of ROT3K).

      But on the other hand, Capcom made “Dynasty Wars” back in 1989, which is a hack-n-slash spin off from Tenchi wo Kurau, beating Koei’s DW2/SSM to the punch by over a decade.

      Koei and Capcom have been having this little “thing” between them for several years, it’s actually been quite interesting to watch!

  • Jonah Paley

    Not interested in the game itself, but Yasunori Mitsuda? Hell yeah. Chrono Cross’s soundtrack is my favorite video game OST ever…

  • Boebie

    Black Prince for main. Back off Joan scrubs.

  • H_Floyd

    They hired Mitsuda’s Procyon Studio just to arrange classical music? What a waste. If you’re going to get Mitsuda on your project, let him do original music.

    • pekikuubik

      Agreed. It’s about time for another RPG soundtrack composed by Mitsuda alone. It’s been 5 years since the amazing Soma Bringer OST. Yes, I’m conveniently ignoring Inazuma Eleven. :P

      However, I am kinda interested in what Mitsuda can do with classical music.

      • Margaret Chan

        I’m not sure if conveniently ignoring Inazuma Eleven is a good thing or a bad thing… I really enjoyed the OST that he did for it.

  • Milla

    Mobile games are the future.

  • Ereek

    This actually sounds pretty neat. Too bad I’m not really interested in playing browser games.

    And I love me some Mitsuda.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Haha, just say Yasunori Mitsuda in the title.
    Everyone knows who he is.

  • leingod

    Browser game, wiiii…

  • DyLaN

    Sounds interesting.

    I’m getting out of here be4 this turn into a hell hole btw. Seeya.

  • Aoshi00

    Why do all these cell phone or PC games that I would never play have such good artwork and big composers *.*;; can’t they just have these talented artists work on regular games.. at least not everyone got turned into girls again..

    The king w/ the eagle looks cool, and Joan of Arc looks cool too. The last Hundred Years War game I played was Level 5′s Jeanne D’arc on PSP. I also liked the movie Messenger w/ Milla Jovovich :)

    • epy

      The pretty art and the music by big composers is there as a hook to get you to play and to distract you from the fact that you’re having a shallow gaming experience which is mostly designed to get you to spend as much money as possible.

      Somewhat unrelated, but lately I fear for Falcom. They consistently make these huge games that look and sound great, have excellent gameplay and an amazing story and characters with a fraction of the budget of pretty much everyone else. They’re like the black sheep of an industry whose motto has become “We can’t afford to make fulfilling game experiences, too expensive”.
