Deep Silver have uploaded a story trailer for Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, coming to PlayStation 4 on May 23rd in North America and Europe! A sequel titled Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth is due out later this year too! Check out the trailer below:
Protagonist Haku wakes up with amnesia in an unfamiliar fantasy world full of strange people. Things only get worse for him when bloodthirsty Uzurusha warlord Gundhurua decides to invade the mighty nation of Yamato and war breaks out! Though not much of a fighter, Haku is a gifted strategist, and Yamato general Oshtor enlists his aid in defending the people. Is Haku’s intelligence enough to take down the enemy and protect the innocent?
The game’s key features include:
– An Unforgettable Story – Mask 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.
Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception releases on PS4 in North America and Europe on 23rd May. The PS4 version will be available both physically and digitally, but the Vita version will be digital only in Europe.
