DescriptionShachō Eiyūden: The Eagle-Shooting Heroes
is based upon the popular Chinese Wuxia novel written by Louis Cha
(better known by his pen name Jin Yong
). The novel, Shediao Yingxiong Zhuan
(The Eagle Shooting Heroes/The Legend of Condor Heroes) is about the adventure of a young boy, Guo Jing. He travels through China in the Song Dynasty to avenge his father's death, and gets entangled in the battles of the Five Greats and the schemes of Jin Dynasty's invasion. He will have to find himself to protect his loved ones.
The gameplay is standard Japanese-style RPG fare, with various characters to meet, and dungeons to explore. The game features FMV cutscenes and voice-acting. The battle system is unique in that there are three types of martial art skills: Qing Gong (lightness), Nei Gong (inner), and Wai Gong (physical). The three types are similar in nature to "rock, paper, scissors," each with one weakness and one invulnerability to the other two.
- "射雕英雄传 " -- Chinese spelling (simplified)
- "Shediao Yingxiongzhuan" -- Chinese Title
