Atlus to Bring a Pair of “Utawarerumono” Games to the West in 2017


“Mask of Deception” comes out this spring, “Mask of Truth” follows this fall

Atlus busted out a double-whammy announcement this morning with the reveal of not one, but two Utawarerumono games for the west. AQUAPLUS’ visual novel/SRPG Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception is set to arrive on PS4 and PS Vita this spring, followed by its direct sequel, Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth, this fall. 

 

Both versions of the games will launch in the Americas physically and digitally. Europe will get a physical release for the PS4 versions, but they will be digital-only on PS Vita in the region.

 

 

Here’s a quick rundown on Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception:

  • An Unforgettable StoryMask of Deception offers a story-rich visual novel experience (40-50+ hours long) that lets players shape the future of a fully realized world filled with fantastical lore and history! Mask of Deception sets up the story for a thrilling conclusion in Mask of Truth, and we’ll reveal more information about the final game at a later date.
  • An Active SRPG Battle System – Players will need to defend Haku and his friends by engaging in intense SRPG combat with the various hostiles that populate the world. The battle system is a thrilling mix of turn-based tactics and Attack Chain mechanics. Players can remain active during combat by successfully completing timing-based charging rings to execute critical attacks or vital dodges/blocks.
  • Fully Fleshed Out Combat – Unique combat features such as the rewind function, elemental affinities/weaknesses, unique character skills, and more add a layer of depth to fights. It’ll take true tactical acumen to emerge victorious in battle!
  • Breathtaking Art – With a stunning art style and beautifully rendered cutscenes, the game is a feast for the eyes for Japanese visual novel and anime aficionados! 
  • Beautiful Songs and a Thrilling Score – The rousing music, recorded and remastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and EastWest Studios, is a perfect soundtrack to accompany a great adventure.
