Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Voice Acting Preparations Begin

Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes Voiceover

A new update from Rabbit & Bear Studios indicated that the developers have begun preparations to record Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes voice acting. In the Steam page update’s “Murayama’s Monthly Development Report” section, Yoshitaka Murayama brought it up.

According to Murayama, preparations have begun for Eiyuden Chronicles: Hundred Heroes voice acting recording. The number of characters in the game that will need accounting for poses a unique challenge, as the game is fully voiced. The voice actors for the three main characters (Noah, Melisa, and Sei) were announced at the Tokyo Game Show. However, many more voice actors and lines will need to be recorded to cover things like battle lines, town chatter, and incidental dialog. There are over 100 characters in the roster and almost 80 different lines per character just for battle.

Murayama estimated that, at the moment, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes voiceover will reach more than 60,000 lines. To get that done, he said, will take “a single army of voice actors.”

As for the rest of the update, the team uploaded some celebratory Halloween art featuring the “self-proclaimed magical girl” character, Mellor. It also profiled an enemy called the Maiden-Revenant.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is in development and will release in 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The prequel game Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is available now.
