Murayama talked about Eiyuden Chronicles: Rising’s progress first. He noted right away, “Development for Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising has entered the final stages.” He also reminded people Tadashi Satomi wrote the story for this spin-off. In the past, Satomi also worked on the scenarios for games like the Persona 2 installments and The Caligula Effect.

As for Murakami, here is part of his statement.

That’s right, our partners in the Eiyuden Chronicle project, Natsume Atari, are nearly finished with the companion game Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, and I’ve been taking a break from the main game these last few months to work as supervising director for it. It’s been a while since I last worked on an Action RPG, so getting to do so was a thrill, and really took me back to my time working with IGA as director on the Castlevania series.

Back then, any one team member would be juggling multiple roles within development, and we had to devise ways to keep the development process fun and enjoyable despite how tough it was being a small team working against tight deadlines. I definitely felt that same atmosphere of fun and positivity with the Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising team.

In addition to confirming the game’s progress, its Mine Dungeon appeared. There’s concept art showing it off. Murakami also noted that it “is going to be a very large dungeon.”
