Aquaplus just announced a new Utawarerumono game in Japan. This franchise was mostly absent in the West until Atlus USA localised Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth which are two parts of a trilogy. The first entry is Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen which NIS America is releasing in the West next year. Details on the new project are sparse right now but there is a teaser trailer for it which you can view below:
The Utawarerumono games are SRPG visual novel hybrids that lean more on the visual novel side of things. I love both Mask of Deception and Mask of Truth and they are must plays for any visual novel fan. Mask of Deception has some of the most gorgeous artwork in visual novels.
This new game has no platforms announced or a release window right now. Check out the official website here. If you want to get into the franchise, either wait for NIS America’s release of Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen on PS4 or PS Vita in 2020 or check out Mask of Deception on the same platforms.
