Atlus released another character trailer for their upcoming game, Utewarerumono: Mask of Deception. The latest trailer focuses on the fearless and mysterious traveler Kuon. After Haku awakens on a dangerous snowy mountain top with nothing but a hospital gown and memory loss whilst surrounded by hostile creatures he is saved by this mysterious girl.
Not much is known about this mysterious traveler except that she is an intelligent herbalist and sports adorable animal ears along with a beast-like tail. Kuon loves to be in the middle of the action, preferring direct melee as she is a strong heroine with knowledge of herbs that makes her an effective healer in fights, as well.
Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception features:
- 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!
- Gorgeous Art – With a stunning art style and beautifully rendered cutscenes, the game is a feast for the eyes.
- 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 will release on May 23rd, 2017 and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth later this year with English text and original Japanese voice acting.
